Dogs are born under the sign of idealism, and as a result they are loyal and caring, hating injustice. They can be somewhat headstrong, and patience is not one of their strong points. Brave by nature, they do not shy away from danger.
The dog is a complex person, and not easily categorised, and come in all shapes and sizes. They are strongly influenced by a sense of fairness and of equality, and are often found to be promoting social reform.
Stubborn, watchful and often defensive, dogs find it hard to understand the general indifference people have to the wrongs of the world. They are quick to point out this fault, and to criticise our lack of concern for the world's injustices.
The dog's main ambition is to please. The desire to please often leads the dog to periods of anxiety, worrying that they are not doing their best. What other people think is important to a dog, and this can also lead to anxiety, and they can become very pessimistic when things aren't going well.
Dogs are often materially successful, and can make large sums of money; however, their cares for the world often means that their wealth does not bring happiness, which is brought about by personal relationships.
The Dog in 2017 Year of the Rooster
For Dogs, the Year of the Rooster indicates a time for ups and downs as generally the Dog and the Rooster are not very compatible, so be wary. So it is probably going to a mediocre type of year.
However, better times are on the horizon with 2006 being the Year of the Dog where you will be stronger for having experienced and grown from the Year of the Rooster. The year will be a time of survival.
