Sign of the Dog
THE DOG PERSONALITY:
This may well be the nicest sign of the entire Chinese cycle. Those born
in the Year of the Dog are honest, intelligent and sincere. They have
a profound sense of loyalty, passion for justice and impartiality. They
are usually lively, attractive and radiate sex appeal. Generally likeable
and unpretentious, they get on with others as they aren't too demanding.
||The Equalitarian Dog loves meeting others and is always eager to listen
to reason. If you have an honest Dog for a friend, remember to call him
or her when you're in trouble. In fact, even if they protest, reprimand
or feign indifference, those born in the Year of the Dog can never ignore
a cry for help. Sometimes, they look after others' interests before their
own. If someone gets you out of a pickle, 10 out of 10 times, it'll be a Dog. Those born in the Year of the Dog remain loyal to the object of their affection even when the latter doesn't deserve it. You'll never see a Dog leave the house just 'cos of a disagreement with his Master - he or she always takes human fragility into account and is always faithful.

is no deserter. Like his equally humanitarian friend the Tiger, the Dog rarely
gets angry with anyone and will never hate you forever. His or her anger
is temporary. When angry, he or she is justified and will act without malice,
rancor or jealousy. When things have been sorted out, the Dog can bury the
