This is another way to write dog in Chinese and Japanese. Just like we have dog, hound, pooch, canine and other words in English. However, this is NOT the character used to express "Year of the Dog". Although it is the most common way to say/write "dog" in Japanese.

<mark>Dog</mark>

This is the character for dog, canine or hound in Chinese.

If you were born in the year of the dog, you . . .


Are strong-willed
Loyal to your friends and mate.
Never compromise when you think you are right.

Note: Can be pronounced, and means dog in Japanese, but feels like a very old word (see our other dog if you need a Japanese dog).

Akita Dog / Akitainu / Akita Inu

Japan aki ta inu
knob

Akita <mark>Dog</mark> / Akitainu / Akita Inu

This is the Japanese title of the breed of dog known as an Akita. Technically, the title above means "Akita hound" or "Akita Dog". The literal translation of these characters is "autumn field dog".


Note: This title is Japanese only. In China, this breed of dog is referred to as "The Japanese breed" (literally: Japanese hound).

Chinese title: 日本犬

Love the Flower, Love the Pot also

Love Me, Love My Dog
China ài huā lián pén ài ài nǚ téng nǚ xù
knob

Love the Flower, Love the Pot also

This proverb literally translates as: if one loves a flower, [one will] love it's pot; [if one really] loves [one's] daughter, [one will also] love [one's] son-in-law.

Figuratively, is similar to the English provers:
Love me, love my dog.
Love for a person extends even to the crows on his roof.

Tengu

China tiān gǒu
Japan ten gu
knob
ribbon top
knob
Tengu

This is the Japanese title for Tengu, which roughly translates as, "heavenly dog".

Tengu are a type of legendary creature found in Japanese folk religion and are also considered a type of Shinto god (kami) or yōkai (supernatural beings).

The origin is Chinese, though this term is seldom used in Chinese any more. It was a dog-like Chinese demon (Tiangou)

Although the title contains the word "dog", the tengu are often depicted with human and bird-like characteristics. Sometimes they have large noses or beaks like birds.

There's No Place Like Home

China jīn wō yín wō bù rú zì jǐ de gǒu wō
knob
ribbon top
knob
There's No Place Like Home

This Chinese slang proverb litereally means: Golden house, [or a] silver house, not as good as my own dog house.

It's basically saying that even a house made of gold or silver is not as good as my own home (which may only be suitable for a dog, but it's mine).

Inuyasha

China quǎn yè chà
Japan inu ya sha
knob

This is the title Inuyasha or Inu Yasha, a fictional character meaning "dog demon" from Japanese Manga. Also known by Manga-lovers in China.

This is the most common way to write Snoopy (comic strip pet dog) in Mandarin Chinese.

Badger

This is a Japanese word that means badger or "raccoon dog" (Nyctereutes procyonoides).

I have included the Chinese and Korean pronunciation above. However, this character is rarely used character in modern Chinese and Korean.

Pug / Pekingese

Japan chin
knob

Pug / Pekingese

This is the shortest way to title the Pekingese, Japanese Spaniel, or Pug breed of dog. This title is a little ambiguous.

This is also sometimes romanized as "chung".

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.


A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
