“If you’re adopting a dog or cat from an animal shelter, or saving a stray from the street, take this opportunity to bring luck to yourself,” says Sifu Sabrina (pix above). “Give the animal a name that denotes riches or fortune. Examples are Goldie, Golddust, Huatchai, Fattchoy, Pohpoh, Ruby and so forth. Never give the animal a name that is homomymous with something negative or associated with something bad. For example, Blackie is not a good name for a dog even if the animal is black because this colour is associated with death."
