T - Tibetan Terrier, Border Terrier, Bedlington Terrier
Although this was meant to be a 'Terrier' post, the Tibetan isn't a Terrier at all.
|Tibetan Terrier - Sasha|
Originally bred by monks almost 2000 years ago, the Tibetan name for this dog is Tsang Apso - shaggy or bearded (apso) from the province of Tsang.
Sasha featured in my North Yorkshire Dogs series here. I don't see her anymore as her owners have moved away. But this is her on her favourite perch.

The Border Terrier is an energetic dog and is essentially a working terrier, bred as a fox and vermin hunter, They originated in and take their name from the Scottish borders region.
They always seem to be keen to meet people even when they are out for a run on a lead.
These two always stop as they remember that I once gave them a treat.
The Bedlington Terrier is named after the Northumberland mining town of Bedlington in North East England and were bred initially to hunt vermin in the mines.
These terriers look like lambs from a distance and have a characteristic pear-shaped head.
I meet one that lives in the village.

And two others, usually out for a six-mile walk.
