The Lhasa Apso — with its tiny stature, sweet face, and fluffy hair — may look like more of an accessory than a companion. But appearances are deceiving: Lhasa Apsos may be tiny, but they also have huge personalities, full of fearlessness and grit. Seems like there's a reason that The Real Housewives of New York City’s Bethenny Frankel currently has two of these furry little beasts after all! (RIP Cookie.)
And, just as every breed of dog has its own cadre of personality traits, so do their owners. Here, we present the nine indisputable facts about every single person who has a Lhasa Apso, 100% true, with zero exceptions.
You’ve had a job ever since you were 15.
And not because your parents made you. You genuinely wanted to sling mint chip at your local ice cream shack. You earned money, you made friends, and you ate all the ice cream you could handle — and you never looked back.
You always get a booth at a restaurant.
Because everyone knows that booths are more comfortable and intimate than chairs, and as such, you aren’t afraid to ask for one, dammit!
You’ve already worked out before most of the world is even awake.
You believe in the energizing power of morning exercise: it wakes you up, preps your body for the day, and gives you a natural high. (Although you still drink plenty of caffeine, of course.)
You get invited to lots of parties.
Everyone knows that you bring the best booze, you tell the best stories, and you make playlists that guarantee to get everyone dancing on a living room table.
Your favorite non-Bravo TV show is Shark Tank. (Especially when Bethenney is on.)
You love watching everyday entrepreneurs with big ideas lay it all out on the line. They’re fearless, they’re inspiring, and yeah, okay, you get a little choked up sometimes.
You seriously consider going into every bouncy house you see…
YES, you know they’re for kids, and YES, you know you are over the height and weight limit, but c’mon… you just want to pretend to be an astronaut for five minutes!
…but you never actually follow through.
Because at the end of the day, you’re a rule-follower, and you don’t want to ruin kids’ fun.
Your home is alarmed.
Maybe you have a full-fledged security system. Or maybe you just have those little magnetic alarms that bing-bong when a door opens and closes. Or maybe you just have the sticker. But no matter what, you’re on alert.
You love chatting with your Lyft driver.
While many people avoid making often-awkward conversation with their taxi drivers, you live for it. You want to know where he’s from, what his favorite restaurant is, and what he’s all about. It makes the ride go faster — and bonus, you’ve made a new friend!
