Those born under auspices of the dog are honest, friendly and trustworthy. They are protective, generous in their love and have a strong sense of justice.
They are also intuitive, good judge of characters and are able to figure out human nature almost instantly. Diplomatic they may be but they are equally fast with their razor sharp
barbs when slighted. Like the animal itself, they are homebodies who care deeply for their families above else. On the negative side, dogs can be overly judgmental and self-righteous. Nothing is good enough for the.
Their eternal quest for the right way at times ends in all consuming depression or disappointment. Dogs find it hard to compromise and may refuse to get off their high horses.

is used in countries that have adopted the Confucian and Buddhism tradition and
in many cultures influenced by the Chinese. Chinese New Year starts on the first
day of the new year containing a new moon (some sources even include New Year's

on a date between January 21 and February 21.
