Year Of The Dog

Leo was so happy that his photo was chosen to be poster boy for year of the dog. So as the year of the dog is now upon us, here are some interesting facts regarding the year of the dog:

Dog is the eleventh animal in the chinese mythology. Dog was chosen by the Jade Emperor due to his loyal protective nature. The element of dog is Earth. This works in harmony with the element of metal but is overwhelmed by the element of wood. Color is yellow, the color that was reserved for the Chinese emperors. It stands for fame, achievement, and progress. In Yin/Yang the dog is both Yin and Yang. The dog's element is earth, which holds yin and yang in equal balance a combination associated with care and thought. The compass direction of dog is west-northwest. A direction associated with the close of autumn and with mid evening.

Leo just says woof.
