Shih Tzu Legends

The dictionary describes a legend as: leg·end, ˈlejənd  noun  plural noun: legends

1. a traditional story sometimes popularly regarded as historical but unauthenticated.

Legends are stories that have been made up, but they are different from myths. 
Myths answer questions about how the natural world works, and are set in a time 
long-ago, before history was written.

Legends are about people and their actions or deeds. The people lived in more recent
times and are mentioned in history. The stories are told for a purpose and are based on facts, but they are not completely true.

Either the person never really did what the story says, or the historical events were changed. The purpose was to make the story more interesting or convincing, or to teach
a lesson, like knowing right from wrong.
