White Dog and the rest of The White Dog Army welcome everyone to the Year of The Rabbit, Chinese New Year 4709.

The three words that best describe the rabbit? Calm and gentle, but persistent. Quietly charismatic, thoughtful and calm, rabbits are admired for their tactful and considerate dealings with all who know them. In dealings with family and friendships, they can always be counted upon for a sympathetic ear or a gentle hand to hold.

Their highly developed natures can also be found in artistic pursuits. They have an impeccable eye for color and line that is evident in their thoughtful fashion sense. The rabbit is usually on anyone's Best Dressed list.

Despite (or because of) their outwardly calm demeanors, rabbits are extremely shrewd In business dealings and may never show their hand until just the right moment. They are also quick to bolt from any perceived danger and intuitively know when to fold - and run!

Famous people born in the Year of the Rabbit: Albert Einstein, Leon Trotsky, Frank Sinatra, Angelinea Joie, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Tiger Woods, Whitney Houston.

The year of the Rabbit is traditionally associated with home and family, artistic pursuits, diplomacy, and keeping the peace. Therefore, 2011 is very likely to be a relatively calmer one than 2010 both on the world scene, as well as on a personal level. 2011 will also see new art movements projecting a distinct national identity taking the world by storm. Shrewd and creative new business partnerships will also form to the benefit of all.

新年好兔子和兔子恋人! Xīnnián kuàilè tù yǔ tù qíngrén! Happy New Year, Rabbits and Rabbit Lovers!

K here - Suka is salivating so much from seeing that HUMONGOUS bunny that I have to take over for him. Suka reacts to bunnies as I react to chocolate. So, the bigger the bunny, the more excited Suka becomes. The photo of HUMONGOUS bunny was overload.

Very nice write-up on Year of the Rabbit. Let's hope that it is a much calmer and more peaceful World this year. And very exciting about art. When creativity blooms the best in humans always comes out!
