Chinese New Year starts February 16th and Jeep couldn’t be happier to celebrate the Year of the Dog! You may not know this, but Chinese New year takes place on a different date each year because it is based on the lunar calendar.
Legend has it that back in ancient days a Chinese emperor ordered 12 animals to become part of the calendar. The dog was chosen to be one of the animals. (Seems like an obvious choice, right?) Some Chinese believe that if a dog comes into a house it is symbolizes the coming of a fortune. What do you think it means if a dog comes into a school?
We all know that most dogs (especially our friend Jeep) are loyal, friendly and kind. With a little luck (and with the help of dogs everywhere) we will have an entire year of kindness! That’s pretty dog gone great!
