Dog Personality

In Chinese society, Dogs are the favored domestic animal because they are so loyal to their owners. And like a Dog, those born in the year of the Dog possess the admirable canine qualities of loyalty and integrity.

Honest and trustworthy, Dog makes an excellent friend and will always take your side. Only Dog will loyally stand by when others have abandoned a cause. Dog won’t hesitate to make sacrifices for people and ideas they believe in. Dog has a strong sense of fair play, and honors commitments.

Direct and frank, Dog does not pay much attention to superficial details and has little patience for frivolity. Yet Dog likes to be spontaneous. Dog can be hot-blooded and emotional, and prefers to react to rather than plan for a situation. Dog prefers to live an impeccable life, a life filled with principles and dignity, always willing to be a crusader for a noble ideology.

The year of the Dog is a time of fairness and equality. Controversial issues are given their due, revolutions are successful, politics are liberal, and political oppression is opposed. Integrity and honesty are the values that lead to success under Dog’s watchful and just influence.


Tao Te Ching verse for Dog

Every being in the universe is an expression of the Tao.
It springs into existence, unconscious, perfect, free.
It takes on a physical body, and lets circumstances complete it.
That is why every being spontaneously honors the Tao.
The Tao gives birth to all beings, nourishes them, maintains them,
cares for them, comforts them, protects them,
takes them back to itself, creating without possessing,
acting without expecting, guiding without interfering.
That is why the love of the Tao is in the very nature of things.
