Day 76 Cody O’Neill (Photo A Day 2012)

This is Cody O’Neill my sister Dolores’ dog. It’s a Lhasa Apso.

The Lhasa Apso is a non-sporting dog breed originating in Tibet. It was bred as an interior sentinel in the Buddhist monasteries, who alerted the monks to any intruders who entered. Lhasa is the capital city of Tibet and apso is a word in the Tibetan language meaning “Bearded,” so Lhasa Apso  simply means “Long-haired Tibetan dog.”
