Friday, February 16, 2018 is the celebration of the Chinese New Year. Each year the day of celebration changes in accordance with the lunar calendar. One of twelve Chinese signs, it is the year of the dog. You can see from my previous posts we enjoyed more than our share of wonderful dogs.
“Honest and loyal, Dogs are the truest friends and most reliable partner.”
Freya was a given dog not aggressive enough in nature for her previous owner so she came to live with us. What a pleasure to have her in our lives.
Kleo was from the SPCA, she joined us as a puppy and we had her for 16 years. Another great one.
Qajaq was a huskie from Iglulik via Iqaluit, her standout characteristic was a three spiral corkscrew tail…unusual but so was she. She came to live with us because she had an independant streak and needed more supervision.
Here is a family photo of my Mother’s family with Arthur holding the family dog.
I could not let this day pass without honouring some of these special dogs who have shared their lives with my family.
