WHY DOES THE CHOW HAVE A BLUE TONGUE YOU ASK?
As the folklore legend goes…. (my own interpretation of different versions)
The little Chow companion sat close by and watched inquisitively as some of the paint dripped from the brush to the ground.
Curiosity got the best of him and he gleefully licked up the paint one drop at a time, then smiled from ear to ear at his master.
Buddha smiled back and exclaimed, “Your tongue is now as beautiful as the sky!”
From that point on, Chow Chows have been blessed by Buddha with an indigo blue tongue.
