The Year of the Dog

The Chinese calendar follows the moon and divides the years into groups of twelve.  Each year is named for an animal.  People born in that year are believed to share different traits.

The Year of the Dog falls on February 16th through to February 4th, 2019.

The Dog will never let you down. Born under this sign you are honest and faithful to those you love. You are plagued by constant worry, a sharp tongue and a tendency to be a fault finder. You would make an excellent businessman, activist, teacher or secret agent.
