The Dog Astrologer|
By Beauregard J. Beauceron
(Jan 20-Feb 18):
The Aquarius Dog is friendly and loyal. Aquarius dogs are most
likely to hang with you in the den while you watch TV, or lay under the hammock while you
enjoy a warm summer day. Aquarius dogs can also be independent and inventive, looking for
new and different ways to retrieve that ball under the couch, for example. The Aquarius
dog is a true pal in every sense, unless his owner forgets mealtime.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20): The Pisces Dog is a kind and loving dog. They
have a giving nature, and are very caring dogs. They make great rescue dogs, and they love
riding up on the seat of a fire engine. Because of their selfless nature they are
easygoing around the house, never upset to make any changes to please his owner. They are
easy to train and love to go for long walks. Especially if those walks lead to a park.
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19): The Aries Dog is adventurous and energetic, always
exploring new areas. Aries dogs love to go for walks and their pioneering nature leads
them in new directions. Their confidence and impulsiveness sometimes gets them into
precarious situations, whether it be following a squirrel into bramble or into a pond
after a stick. But the Aries dog will always firmly and boldly assert himself and dive
headlong into another escapade, especially if its with that little mutt from across
town that always seems to find the good sticks.
Taurus (Apr 20-May 20):
The Taurus Dog is loving and cuddly. Taurus dogs
are patient and reliable, always putting up with their owners foibles and habits.
They love to lay in front of a fire or curled on a blanket. The Taurus dog relishes time
with his owner and is a little jealous of others who interrupt that special time. Taurus
dogs are quiet and peaceful and are most comfortable when all is well and secure in their
world, especially if theres a bone nearby.
Gemini (May 21- Jun 21):
The Gemini Dog is a lively dog that gets along
anywhere and in any situation. Gemini dogs love to communicate with their owners excited
to share a recent discovery or observation. No matter how old they are, Gemini dogs are
always youthful and exuberant. Inquisitive and sometimes a little devilish, the Taurus dog
is versatile and adaptive and absolutely loves double fire hydrants.
Cancer (Jun 22-Jul 22): The Cancer Dog is protective and caring. Woe be
to the burglar that chooses the home of a Cancer dog. Cancer dogs are emotional and
intuitive; they know whats on their owners mind even before the owner. Cancer
dogs are also sensitive and tender. Theyre also the most sympathetic of all dogs,
intuitively feeling what their owners feel. Unfortunately, the same is not true for the
Leo (Jul 23-Aug 22): The Leo Dog is powerful and faithful. They are
enthusiastic and full of energy. Leo dogs head pell mell into every activity, from running
to fetching. They even sleep with gusto and elan. Leo dogs are convinced they are the
masters of all they survey and while they are generous and warm-hearted, they are the
boss. Above all, Leo dogs are faithful and loyal to their owners, except where cats might
Virgo (Aug 23-Sept 22): The Virgo Dog is modest and a little shy. While
the Virgo dog knows hes handsome and attractive, hes reluctant to prance about
showing off. The Virgo dog is also reliable and diligent. Given a task, the Virgo dog
carries it out fully and faithfully, but turns bashful in the face of lavish praise. Virgo
dogs are happy lying in the sun watching their families happy around them. Of course, the
Virgo dog overcomes his natural shyness the minute theres a mention of dog treats.
Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22): The Libra Dog is easygoing and sociable. Libra
dogs are relaxed and at home at both extravagant soirées and small intimate gatherings.
They are happy moving among guests at the largest parties or curled up by the coffee table
at high tea. The important thing for Libra dogs is to be out and about, among people,
other dogs, anyplace social. Libra dogs are laid back and happy. Not much excites them,
except that little French poodle on the next block.
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21):
The Scorpio Dog is determined and focused.
Scorpio dogs will always accomplish whatever it is they set their minds to. They are also
passionate and forceful dogs, relishing every activity, even as they exhaust themselves
having fun at it. Scorpio dogs can be intense; they have been known to stare at a rabbit
in the yard for hours at a time, while trapped inside, never moving from their window
perch. Except, of course when the dinner bell rings.
Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21):
The Sagittarius Dog is carefree and
freedom-loving. Sagittarius dogs love wide open spaces and the ability to explore them.
They are happy and good-humored dogs who love to romp and play with their owners.
Sagittarius dogs are open and honest, never hiding how they feel, which is usually happy
and jovial. Sagittarius dogs are happiest when they are in an open field with an owner to
throw a ball.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19): The Capricorn Dog is patient and careful.
Capricorn dogs seem to know that good things come to dogs that wait. That may explain why
they sit so quietly by their owners in the kitchen. The Capricorn dog is meticulous and
particular. He sleeps in a certain place, likes certain toys and patrols the yard in a
certain way. The Capricorn dog is also very disciplined, except when it comes to enjoying
