A little about what you should not give in the year of the Earthy Yellow Dog
It is difficult to find a person who would not be happy gift, presented with the soul and good wishes. And only an absolutely tactless person is able to give, a thing that can remind of a bad thing or disappoint. But astrologers argue that there are several items that should not be given to the New Year of 2018 Dogs, so as not to offend, let alone irritate, the totem animal and the symbol of the coming year.
Avoid jewelry that is worn around the neck - dogs do not like chains. Connoisseurs of the stars also warn that a man’s friend actually has a negative attitude to strong odors and is unlikely to approve a gift in the form of perfumes and toilet water.And you should avoid any gifts that are associated with the image of cats or kittens, after all the saying, “like a cat with a dog” was invented by the people for good reason and such a gift can later embroil friends or loved ones.
