Years of the Dog: 1934 – 1946 – 1958 – 1970 – 1982 – 1994 – 2006 – 2018.
Dogs are honest, straightforward, and friendly. They are extremely protective of themselves and their loved ones. With a passion for fair play and justice, they never fail to rescue you time after time. They may rant and rave, but they never rest until they right the wrong.
They are true humanitarians and suffer with the world. In spite of their concern for others, social graces and fancy parties do not impress them. Having sharp eyes, they will see through people’s motives. They are quite private about their personal lives and someone prying into their affairs make them secretive and withdrawn. Once you gain their confidence, they open up freely. Once Dogs classify you, they rarely change their minds. There are few in-betweens.
Dogs are tolerant of their friends. Before they approve of you, the friendship must develop slowly with a variety of meetings and conversations.
If they look you over and decide they can trust you, you remain in their hearts forever. If you need them, Dogs will be there. When the time is right, Dogs work long and hard, but they know how to relax, and enjoy their home and loved ones. The Dogs have playful moods and a great sense of humour. They have quick emotions and if you offend them, they will snarl and insult you with expertise.
They forgive with the same speed. Dogs are intelligent and well-balanced. With their stable minds, they make good counsellors or psychologists. They endure during any crisis situation. They are trustworthy people and know how to keep a secret.
