Meet Tashi!

This is Tashi. Her name is Tibetan for "good fortune" or "auspiciousness."

She is a sweet and lovely Border Collie that has had an exciting and adventurous life. She's moved all over the country and has even seen the Dalhi Llama speak!

Her parents had the great idea of depicting her as an Indiana Jones-like adventurer in Lhasa with the Dalhi Llama's palace in the background.
