2018: Chinese Year of the Yang Earth Dog

February 16, 2018

 

Feb. 16, 2018, to Feb. 4, 2019

The Chinese year of the rooster had way too much crowing and strutting. Welcome to the year of intelligence, stability and loyalty. The year of the people-friendly yang earth dog! At least I’m hoping.

Here are several family pictures from shortly before I was born. Shep was my paternal grandfather’s farm dog. I don’t think you can get a better earth dog than one that grows up with the range of animals on a traditional farm. I don’t know where the picture with the two terriers was taken. But if you take any dog hunting, it will love you.
