In this glass decor piece from the 2018 Chinese zodiac Year of the Dog collection “Longing for a Pure Existence,” a humble and tender Chow Chow rests in a relaxed and unassuming pose. The home decor glasswork here—blended in loving colors of violet and orchid—evokes a sense of tenderness and compassion. Its accompanying poetry reminds that, despite all other expectations and life struggles, the best quality in dogs that strengthens a friend at the end of the day is loyalty. In this way, the artwork “Only Love” stays by one’s side, always reminding that companionship and partnership are ultimately the truest and purest treasures of wealth and fortune.
Me? A guard dog? I bark but not in alarm. Me? A work dog? I never learned how to pull a sled.
But when you leave home it is I who awaits your return. And when you return it is I who stays by your side.
It seems that the one thing I’m good for is loving you.
