According to the Chinese Calendar, I am a dog. A Libran Dog to be exact.
We soon will be entering the Metal Dog phase in the twelve year reign, until 2018, when it will be The Year of the Dog once again... Tigers are reigning now...and Dogs and Tigers are highly compatible! :) Roar!!!!!!
This year I inherit in being generous, judicious, and rigid, motivated by devotion and graciousness and precision...

The Metal Dog Years

Woof or weft?

This dampened, cold
colly makes me
narrow in my . . .

my bare feet.

Slippers seem to
slip away . . . away!. . .
Heels need too!

. . . to go out!

Neighbors are up.  
Cold, in me. . .
Cold bare feet. . .

Cold meddle feats!

Do you say? ,
“Hi! . . . good morning?”
Trees,  call me . . .

Dogs too. . .  Trees! . . .

Year of Dog?
Hear the dawgs. . .
New years, China!

I’m not buying!

Cold out. . .  hear. . .
Dog,  pee already!
. . . US is eft.

All eft up.  . . .

Love thy neighbors!
Weft or Woofers . . .
Animal or Vegan . . .

Anyone is barking!
Or your biggin'!
Tigers roaring . . .  pinging. . .

Heavy metal. . . Woof!

This little ditty covers more territory than Google.

When China takes over our economic world, will we all be forced to celebrate the Chinese New Year, and 'with two you get egg roll...' ;-)

I might suggest you avoid the doggie treat aisle at the market. Otherwise before you know it milkbones might be looking pretty good with your latte'. Patrick
There is a lot of fang sway in this isn't there, ha,
Bless ya, I love dogies as you know, Jasmin Horst

How you let it all flow, Kimmy, is just great...and leave us to fill in the spaces and pauses. Luv it!

LOL, feeling a tad ruff? I'm the tiger, though libra too.
Hmm, does this mean that when you meet someone you don't ask for their pass you just sniff their, enjoy your walkies. Being a dog has gotta be better than a rat or pig or erm, can I get back to you on this. Nice wag. Enjoyable penn. x
