Year of the Dog 2018

For centuries, dogs has been the loyal companions for many – rich and poor alike. For some, a dog is the only true friend that they have. Through selective breeding, we now have over 200 different dog breeds that are bred for various functions and purposes. There are dogs trained for search and rescue as well as service dogs for the physically challenged. No matter its functions and purposes, the dog remains and will always be a man’s best friend.

Based on my experiences having dogs as pets, they are affectionate, contented, and quick to forgive. A dog will always brighten up your day whenever you’re down and it is more likely that you will hear humans complaining about their four legged friends than the other way around.

The special bond and relationship between man and his dog can never be truly defined and explained. No two dogs are the same but once you have allowed a dog into your heart, it will remain there forever.

Just like previous years, I have painted the yearly Chinese Zodiac animals and these are the paintings I have done in dedication to the Earth Dog.
