The Dog Astrologer
By Beauregard J. Beauceron

Aquarius (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 it’s 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 owner’s 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 there’s 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 what’s on their owner’s mind even before the owner. Cancer dogs are also sensitive and tender. They’re also the most sympathetic of all dogs, intuitively feeling what their owners feel. Unfortunately, the same is not true for the mailperson.

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 be involved.

Virgo (Aug 23-Sept 22): The Virgo Dog is modest and a little shy. While the Virgo dog knows he’s handsome and attractive, he’s 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 there’s 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 liver snacks.
