The Dog is the 11th in the 12 year cycle of the Chinese Zodiac.
The other animals that make up the Zodiac are: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster and pig. These animals were originally chosen as either representations of their daily domestic lives such as the horse, or ones that they admired such as the dragon.
Each animal was also chosen for the attributes that then became symbolised. A dog’s main attributes include:
- an understanding of the human spirit
- a symbol of good fortune
- willingness to help others
- a deep moral sense

We agree that this is indeed very likely.
May 2018 bring everyone good fortune – and – sausages.
