Saturday scenery: Year of the Dog

The grand civic festival we call Chinese New Year falls in February, complete with parading dancing dragons and fireworks. But the ancient lunar year runs, naturally, for a full year.

This year, we're in the time of the eleventh zodiac animal, the dog.

Honest and loyal, Dogs are the truest friends and most reliable partner.

Perhaps also dogs bring good luck in the lottery?

Households throughout San Francisco quite commonly display the animal on their doors.

"Chinese New Year" is also the "Spring Festival." This may explain why some canine representations are so perky.

All encountered over the last few months while Walking San Francisco.
