Chinese New Year

2018 is the Chinese year of the dog. Previous years of the dogs have been 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994 & 2006

The Dog is the 11th of the zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Emperor said the order of the animals would be decided by the order in which they arrived at his party. Monkey, Rooster and Dog were in another country, helping a god defeat evil spirits. They arrived at the party at the same time, so the Emperor went by the order they met the god in the other country.

A Dog’s most defining characteristic is their loyalty. They will never abandon their friends, family or work and are popular in social circles. Everyone needs a Dog friend for advice and help. Dogs can be worried and anxious on the inside. However, they will not let this stop them. Once they decide on something, no one can persuade them against it.

The signs most compatible with dogs are RabbitTigerHorse and the least compatible are DragonOxGoat

Lucky things for Dogs are the colours green, red and purple. Number 3, 4 and 9 and then emeralds

Whilst Unlucky things are the colours blue and brown and the numbers 1, 7 and 8.

It’s the Chinese tradition to wear red underwear every day during your zodiac year so Dogs can try this to ward off the bad luck.

Some famous dogs are Madonna, Elvis Presley, Donald Trump, Prince William and Kate Middleton, Mother Teresa and Steven Spielberg
