Alright those who know me had to have known I would blog about this.
2018 is the year of the dog according to the Chinese Zodiac.
The Chinese Zodiac is different from the Western Zodiac.
Instead of sun signs based on the month and date, you were both the Chinese use your year of birth.
It takes twelve years for any animal in the Chinese Zodiac to recirculate.
So, if you were born in 2018 you are a very special type of person…
A Year Of The Dog Person!
Being born during a dog year does not necessarily make you more of a dog lover, or “dog person”.
People born during dog years are known for certain traits, however.
Those born under the sign of the dog in the Chinese Calander are said to be loyal, friendly, faithful, and honest.
They are also known to be hard working, direct, smart, quick learners, and easily liked by others.
That all sounds pretty canine like to me!
Famous People Born Under Dog Years:
Jane Goodall was a British primatologist, ethologist, anthropologist, and UN Messenger of Peace. She is also known for her work with chimpanzees, her animal behavior studies, and her animal activism.
Born Dana Elaine Owens, Queen Latifah is an American rapper, songwriter, singer, actress, model, television producer, record producer, and talk show hostess. This lady is a powerhouse! She is also known to be very vocal when it comes to women’s issues and empowerment.
Dog people can take pride in the fact that among them is Socrates, a classical Greek philosopher. Socrates is credited as one of the founders of Western philosophy, and as being the first moral philosopher, of the western ethical tradition of thought.
I am so excited to see Hannah Dakota Fanning in The Alienist which premieres January 22nd! I do not think I have seen her in anything since she was a child actress, although she is still a young one to me I enjoy her acting very much.
Some of my other Favorite Famous People Who Fall Under The Year Of The Dog:

The actual Chinese New Year Begins On February 16th:
Unlike the New Year in the States, the Chinese New Year starts on different dates each year.
It does always start however between the 21st of January and the 20th of February.
Granted the Year of the Dog may not have anything to do with how much someone loves dogs.
