It's the Year of the Dog!

Bronze-Clad "Bird Dog" Bookends (LEO Design)
Gung Hay Fat Choy!  And a happy Year of the Dog!
The dog is the eleventh sign in the lunar zodiac—and a popular one, too!  And this year, we celebrate the "Earth Dog."  Known for their tenaciousness, dogs won't let go of their bone once they have it.  And this fierceness translates to their personal loyalty as well;  they will never abandon their friends, famiy or work.  For this reason, dogs are often sought for their good advice—good honest advice.  At times, this brutal honesty can be mistaken for brusqueness.  In truth, dogs just want their critiques to help improve people and situations.  Despite their popularity, and the confidence they engender, dogs are often quite anxious deep inside.
Dogs get along best with Rabbits, favor purple, red and green (thus, emeralds) and seem to thrive between 7 and 9 pm.
The bookends above—whether or not they were crafted during the year of the dog—are, likewise, loyal and will tenaciously hold-up your favorite books.  Please click on the photo above to learn more about them.
