Gung Hei Fat Choi!
Gung Hei Fat Choi! This is Pepper. Chestnut and I wish everyone a healthy and prosperous Year of the Pug! (Daddy said it's actually Year of the Dragon.. but since we count in dog years so it'd be Year of the Pug!)
This morning, we met up with our neighbors Choco and Muffin to watch the traditional Chinese lion dance. My brother Chestnut was scared of the lions because he almost fell into the water last year when he was approached by one! So Chestnut was trying to stay away from the lions the whole time while I was really eager to play with them!
The lions jumped, took a lettuce hanging at the entrance, then shred and threw it to us to symbolize the spreading of wealth. Choco, Muffin, Chestnut and I took in as much wealth as we could alright (by eating the lettuce!). We later ran into the God of Fortune who wished us good luck by padding us, so I am sure we should be prosperous enough this year to buy more treats and toys.
