Year of the Dog


1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006

Loyal and sweet, the Dog is an elegant soul who keeps it real, no matter how fussy she looks. Like an eager pup, this sign responds to praise and attention, and knows how to court it. Nobody pulls off simple glamour like Dogs. Put one in an elegant gown or tuxedo and the cameras start clicking. There are plenty of show dogs among this sign! Their barks can be intimidating, like Donald Trump’s “You’re fired!” Only a threatened Dog can be vicious, though. Although some are divas, most Dogs are simple creatures of habit. Some might find them boring, even infuriating, because they’re so faithful to their routines. Dogs hate drama, but they love mischief. Sometimes, there’s a thin line between the two for them. Still, no matter how crazy a Dog can make her friends and family, few can resist this sign’s charms. It takes a mere scolding for Dogs to become loveable creatures once again. One beautiful, repentant smile and every mess is forgiven.
