If you’re reading this, it’s safe to assume you love dogs. You probably saw the word ‘dog’ in the headline, and like a canine who sees a squirrel, you were all ears and at attention. No judgement – my insta bio literally says “crazy dog lady”.
I’m excited to embark (hahaha... bark) on the year of the dog this CNY. The Chinese zodiac cycle repeats itself every 12 years, meaning the last time you experienced this lunar term was in 1995, right smack in the middle of the ‘90s. Gianni Versace was still alive, the Spice Girls were just starting out and Tom Ford joined Gucci as Creative Director.
As for me, I was a mere bambini at 3-years old, living abroad where Chinese New Year isn’t really a big deal. Even if it were, I wouldn’t remember it so it would explain why I’m really looking forward to February 16 (that and the pineapple tarts). I believe great things are to come when it’s the year of your favourite animal. So dress the part - here’s a list of doggo decorated apparel and accessories for you to ring in the year and invite all the ong.
