Happy Chinese New Year, friends! Chinese New Year festitivities start today, February 16th, and continue for the next two weeks. This year is an extra special year because it is the Year of the DOG! Over the next two weeks, we will be posting some excerpts from Lillian Pearl Bridges’ “Year of the Yellow Dog” to tell you more about how this year may go for you.

According to Bridges, February 16, 2018 is “the start of the Chinese Year of the Yellow Dog. This is a Yang Earth Year, which will bring much more stability, with a few notable exceptions. The Elements are Yang Earth on top of Earth, which means that they harmonize with each other. So, overall, it is will be a much calmer year and may sometimes even seem boring...There will be a palpable feeling of relief from the tensions of the previous years, especially as we get deeper into the year. Life should get easier and more relaxed.”

As if that wasn’t relieving enough, Bridges goes on to explain, “The Dog is considered a lucky animal to the Chinese and when one comes to your house, it brings good luck to the occupants. Therefore, anyone who loves and cares for dogs this year will get a little extra luck for honoring them.”

So for all you dog lovers/owners/carers out there, give the dog you love a little extra treat tonight to thank him/her for bringing you some good luck!
