Isn't it funny .......

...... our Mies got a lot of attention from some probably Chinese or Korean tourists walking between de windmills of Kinderdijk.

Several times they made pictures of her, or together with her. Pretty amazing for us. Why? Well I found this on the internet:

Tibetian terriërs were bred and raised in monasteries by lamas over 2000 years ago, Tibetan Terriers were kept as good luck charms, mascots, watchdogs, and companions.
Known as the "Holy Dogs of Tibet", they were never sold but only given as gifts by monks to promote good fortune.  As such, the early history of the breed is linked to only a handful of foundation dogs. Recent DNA analysis has concluded that the Tibetan Terrier is descended from the most ancient dog breeds.

It seems that we have a very interesting dog ; ).
Unknow lady from China who really wanted to be on the photo with Mies. She wasn't the only one.

Gezellig zo'n weekendje weg in eigen land met vrienden uit het buitenland. Altijd leuk om ze rond te leiden vindt ik. Wat bijzonder het verhaal over het ras van Mies. Als ze nu maar niet te verwaand wordt!
