The tiangou (literally: "Heavenly Dog") is a legendary creature from China.. The tiangou resembles a black dog or meteor, which is thought to eat the sun or moon during an eclipse..Tales explain that you must beat dogs and drive them away in order to ward off the tiangou..The dog god would then spit out the sun or moon and flee back into the heavens..

I am here to protect thee..

For thousands of years, a twelve-year cycle named after various real or mythological animals has been used in Southeast Asia.. This twelve-year cycle, sometimes referred to as the "Chinese zodiac," associates each year in turn with a certain creature, in a fixed order of twelve animals, after which it returns to the first in the order, the Rat..The 11th in the cycle is the Dog..In northern China, dog images made by cutting paper were thrown in the water as part of the ritual of the Double Fifth (Duanwu Festival) holiday, celebrated on the 5th day of the 5th lunar month, as an apotropaic Magick act meant to drive away evil spirits. Paper dogs were also provided for protecting the dead..Numerous statuary of Chinese guardian lions Exist, which are often called "Fu Dogs" "Foo Dogs", "Fu Lions", "Fo Lions", and "Lion Dogs"..., I'm out of it for a little while, everyone gets delusions of grandeur!..You underestimate the power of the Dark Side..If you will not fight, then you will meet your destiny...
