The term Foo Dog is slang for Chinese guardian lion. These statues can be found all over china and were originally believed to have powerful mythic protective benefits. But to me they are just another fabulous accessory! Pairs of Foo Dogs are super trendy and have been for quite some time. I don't care if they are super cliche...I still love them. They come in so many different colors and qualities it's easy to find a foo dog to fit any aesthetic. I haven't found the perfect pair just yet but I have my eye on a beautiful set my Dad has flanking his fireplace (although he doesn't know this yet!). Are you over it or do you still have a soft spot for these guys??
