Year of the Dog
February 9, 2018
The Lunar New Year starts on February 16. This year, it is the year of the dog. What does this mean? Well, if you subscribe to the Chinese zodiac, you’d expect that people born in 2018 (and past dog years such as 1994, 1982, 1970 and 1958) exhibit certain dog-like character traits. That is, they are honest, loyal and extremely good company.
This got us thinking – about dogs, of course, and some of our favourite memories with our favourite furry friends.
