#108 Year of the Doggy

B:Happy Lunar New Year! B: [chinese] Gongxi fa cai D: I think this will really be my year. It is Chinese New Years today. 2006 is the year of the dog. So I imagine the dog will have a very good year. I'm in the Chinese new years spirit, because for my Chinese 102 class we had to sing this song "Gong Xi gong Xi" for a room full of Chinese graduate students.

The boy is saying "Gong xi fa cai." They say that a lot apparently around New Years.

Doggy Doggy everywhere

A neat site my friend linda showed me. This is a neat site with lots of cute dog photos. It's in Chinese so I can't understand it (although I did recognize the character for dog gou - 狗 I knew my Chinese 101 course would come in handy at some point!) Here are few of my favorites: one, two, three, and four. Let others know your favorites in the comments section!

#107 Words Words Words

B:Sometimes people talk too much. anytime there is silence people feel they need to jump in and fill the void with words B:Whatever they are saying, i'm sure it can be said in a much simpler and concise form. I think they must get so excited about what they are saying that they forget to turn off the words faucet. I mean why do they talk so much? Just say what you want to say in a simple statement. That's the best thing to do: not use many words. words, words, words. D: yes. brevity is good. I better not write too much in this section or it might upset the boy! I would like to thank Amishi for providing the dog's words of wisdom: "Brevity is good." I think the boy got carried away with this idea though.

Hachiko

The story of one dog's devotion to his best friend.

I stumbled upon the story of Hachiko one day while reading stories online. It made me smile and even brightened the color of the day by a bit. Perhaps it will do the same for you. You can find the story at this website or view it in pdf format

It is the story of a dog in Japan. Everyday the dog would wait for his master at the train station. One day when the master did not come home from work, Hachiko continued to wait for him. Day after day the dog continued to wait. The dog's devotion to his deceased owner became well known throughout Japan.

I enjoy stories of such loyalty.

It's rare to find such a friend.
