Many images of the symbol of "Gang Sing" or "Snowlion" have a very strong resemblance to the Shih Tzu. The Snowlion is mentioned in the ancient scrolls; it is said that he is king of all animals. It has three powers, the ability to jump, turn around, and walk back in mist and clouds. His voice, the voice of the Middle Way that is the voice between truth and courage, when it is heard it subdues all. Its power is so strong that when it roars, seven dragons fall from the sky. This ancient, magical description of the Shih Tzu easily describes the courageous little dog as it is today.
