Today marks the start of the Chinese New Year, and although it IS the year of the sheep, these pooches don’t seem to mind. Celebrations in the United Kingdom tend to last just three days instead of the full fifteen, but luckily for the pups, the second day is all about them! On day two, believed to the birthday of all dogs, the pups of the households are honored with special treats and gifts.

Here are 22 Pups ready to sweep away last year’s bad luck and welcome pawesome vibes into 2015!

2) “May you have the cuddling strength of a dragon all year.”pintrest
