Arrival Story:
My parents decided years ago to get a dog in order to cure my younger sister and me of our fear of dogs. For a while, they were looking at collies, but the idea of getting one of them kind of died when they took my sisters and me to a breeder and the collies, enthusiastic to play, promptly chased my sister and me straight out of their pen and across the yard. Tally, herself, was an impulse buy at a pet store that has since closed. It was a place that we would visit usually just to play with the puppies, but there was one time my mother and sisters went there (I was away at a convention) and saw Tally. They absolutely loved her, but the shopkeeper told them when they commented on how pretty they thought she was, "Yeah, she's probably going to go fast." The next day, they called me while I was still across the state to say, "Guess what? We're getting a dog!"

I think there's a reason that a lot of books do not recommend lhasas for first-time pet owners. I don't think my family realized what they were getting into when they got her. We wound up needing to get her to a professional in order to get her through basic training. Even he said, when we came to pick her up, "If your girls can handle this dog, they can handle any dog. Size isn't an issue." Still, I'm glad that my parents have been as devoted as they have to making sure that we could still be Tally's forever home and that she would be happy with us. It's now been seven years, and I can't imagine life without her. T's had occasional seizures ever since she was a puppy, but it doesn't stop her from being an energetic and happy little girl who always greets me when I come home from school with the most enthusiastic greeting of anyone.
