LEGO has just released the build instructions for the Lunar Year of the Dog set (40235) over at their website.
*Update, it seems that the link seems to be down now as of 5th December 2017. We’ll link it up once it becomes available again.
In the meantime, thanks to a reader who shared a copy, you can get it here :

Historically, this line has been quite hard for fans to acquire outside of Asia with the exception being the 2017 Year of the Rooster set which was available at the London Leicester Square outlet. Thus, the release of the instructions are a boon for those that collect this line. The Dog build. also features little red packets at the base. These traditionally contain money or gold as a blessing to the young and are given out during the Lunar New Year.
There was also a China exclusive year of the Snake set released before the year of the Sheep that was slightly different as it was a 4 in 1 set possibly released to test the reception to such a set.
