2018 – The Year of the Dog.


Happy New Year, Lunar New Year that is. Today, cultures across Asia and around the world are celebrating a new year, this year, the Year of the Dog. As you probably know, the lunar calendar is divided up into 12 signs of the Zodiac; Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Pig, and this year’s symbol, the dog.

You were born in the year of the Dog if your birthdate’s fall into any of these years, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, or 2006.

It is said people born in the year of the Dog are conservative and full of justice. Because of their loyalty, Dogs are valued in the workplace. They rarely break rules, except for people important to them. In life, they only wish to live quietly with their family.

So, for all you dogs, may this be a terrific year for you!

Want to do something nice for your actual dog(s) this year?

Perhaps a pair of dog sunglasses from Doggles.

Brand NEW K9 Optix styles bring us into the next generation of dog sunglasses. The frames are all one piece coated rubber with a flexible nose bridge; that means no more screws or separate nose pads!

How about some RexSpecs Dog Goggles?

As an eye care professional, you are all no doubt familiar with Rec Specs from Liberty Sport. How about Rex Specs? Rex Specs dog goggles are protective eyewear for the active dog. These goggles are stable and secure while still allowing for full jaw motion and field of view. Rex Specs protect your dog’s eyes from debris, environmental hazards, and sun. All lenses are UVA/UVB protective.

Then again, you could purchase matching eyewear for you and your pup from Say-Oh eyewear from Japan. There are currently two models to choose from.
