It makes sense that during the dog days of summer we would come upon ‘Mutt Day.’ So I thought about all the different dictates involving dogs and the world of Feng Shui. First, this philosophy says the best way to garner the best protection is to place a pair of Fu dogs flanking the formal front entryway to your living space. Fu dogs, or Imperial Guardian Lions, are one of the strongest protection symbols in this pantheon and are believed to bring family wealth and social status while keeping bad luck at bay. Feng Shui also says that if you see a limping dog while embarking on any journey that you should cancel your plans and start out again at some other time. This image of a limping dog portends problems and obstacles along your way, and even could predict accidents, illnesses or injury. Lastly, Feng Shui says that a stray dog can bring good fortune and luck along with it. So the next time some random dog makes their way into your life, you know what to name it right? Why, Lucky, of course!
