The Year of the Dog

On Friday, 16 February 2018, we welcomed:

The Year of the Dog

Chinese know how to party. Chinese New Year was globally celebrated on this Friday by an explosion of sound and light, including bell ringing, lighting firecrackers and watching traditional lion dances (mind you, these are all not very dog-friendly!). 

People born in 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, and 2018 are known as Dogs. They are known to be loyal and honest, amiable and kind, cautious and prudent. They do tend to come over as stubborn as they are not good at communication but they are born with a good nature and are always ready to help others.

Pooches all over the world were being extra pampered. A nice grooming, a haircut, a little treat, … For many of us, our dog is part of our family. We include them in walks, we give them cuddles, we take them to the vet, we even sometimes give them the role of Ring-Bearer at weddings! 

We can see that most (or even all!) character traits of “Dogs” are very applicable to our furry companions. They are loyal and love us unconditionally. They can be cautious and suffer from “selective hearing” when they are stubborn. 

But we love them. So take a moment to appreciate that dog of yours. This is a dog’s year!

Below are some of the TNR dogs. We, the trustees and volunteers, put our hearts and souls into this.

There are lots of dogs,

but we have enough love for every single one of them.
