Chinese Year of the Fire Dog!
Happy New Lunar Year. And as its the start of the Chinese Year of the Fire Dog here is a transformation of this somewhat perplexed friendly pooch into a flaming fire dog!
The last time there was a fire dog year was 1946.
Dogs in general may be rather overwhelming... dogs are very loyal though maybe a bit bossy too.
Fire dogs make good leaders. They have plenty of charisma and are honest but don't want to settle down.
Wood Dog - 1934 and 1994
Wood dogs are not as independent as other dogs and really like to be part of a group - they need someone to throw their sticks for them!
Metal Dog - 1910 and 1970
Metal dogs pick their friends with care. Once a friend though, always a friend. They can be extremely anxious if they are unable to get on with their work.
Water Dog - 1922 and 1982
Water dogs are less loyal than the others. Easy come, easy go is their motto, with both people and money.
Earth Dog - 1910 and 1958
In the year of the fire dog, earth dogs will feel rather more energetic than usual and maybe not as grounded, as shown in this photo!
Earth dogs are trustworthy and diplomatic and make great leaders.
All these photographs were taken today in Blaise Castle Park in Bristol.
