Reminder: 2018 Asian Zodiac / Year of the Dog Challenge

Chinese New Year 2018 will be on February 16, so the Year of the Dog challenge will be from February 2 to March 1.

In addition to dog-related words (I'm still working on the list) & images, these words will work:

12
animal
astrology
cycle
lunar
moon
new
sign
symbol
twelve
xii
year
zodiac

As suggested by GoryDetails:

Any book with the number of a Year of the Dog in the title will work:
1862, 1874, 1886, 1898, 1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, etc. You can extend the list out in either direction with multiples of 12 or use a calculator like this one: https://www.travelchinaguide.com/---/zodiac - I recommend using a mid-year date to avoid the ambiguity caused by the moveable date of the lunar New Year.

More to come...

I know this challenge is still a few months away but I thought I'd put my hand up before I forgot!

Now on the hunt for canine-related books...

Thanks for posting early so we can look for doggies.

I expect dogs to be easier than chickens, but we're in the midst of the fall church rummage sale season here, so I thought I should mention the challenge for those of you who like to plan in advance. :)

...but PLEASE must mention the appropriate logo in your post here. Including a picture of the logo in a journal entry is even better.
