A neighbour walking his dog, stopped by a few minutes ago, to tell us that it is a very good omen to have a dog giving birth to only one puppy. According to the old folks, it is believed that the owners will enjoy good fortune. Many Chinese are rather superstitious people.
Below are some of the Omens of Good Fortune extracted from WOFS.com:
Meeting Up With A Cow
When someone brings you a dog as a gift or if a stray puppy decides to adopt you, welcome him or her into your home. A dog entering your home is a very favourable sign, as it means you will have faithful and sincere friends come into your life, helping you overcome obstacles of all kinds. Black dogs bring wealth and protection. Golden dogs bring prosperity and happiness and white dogs bring love and romance.
Garden Creatures That Bring Good Fortune
Include insects and grasshoppers. If a grasshopper were to hop into your house, it means a very distinguished person is about to visit you. It can also mean that you are about to receive a great honour. Ladybirds suggest visitors, while frogs jumping into your home suggest money is coming to you.
