Those born under auspices of the dog are honest, friendly and trustworthy. They are protective, generous in their love and have a strong sense of justice.
They are also intuitive, good judge of characters and are able to figure out human nature almost instantly. Diplomatic they may be but they are equally fast with their razor sharp
barbs when slighted. Like the animal itself, they are homebodies who care deeply for their families above else. On the negative side, dogs can be
overly judgmental and self-righteous. Nothing is good enough for the. Their eternal quest for the right way at times ends in all consuming
depression or disappointment. Dogs find it hard to compromise and may refuse to get off their high horses.

personality, and destiny. The saying is: "This animal hides in your heart."

The date of the Chinese New Year is determined by the Chinese calendar, a lunisolar calendar. The same calendar is used in countries that have adopted the Confucian and Buddhism tradition and
in many cultures influenced by the Chinese. Chinese New Year starts on the first day of the new year containing a new moon (some sources even include New Year's Eve) and ends on the Lantern Festival fourteen days later. This occurs around
the time of the full moon as each lunation is about 29.53 days in duration. In the Gregorian calendar, the Chinese New Year falls on different dates each year, on a date between January 21 and February 21.
Some web sites say the year 2017 is the 4717th Chinese year. If you cannot find the explanation, here is a possible answer for you: The Yellow King's inauguration was held in the spring

B.C., then year 2014 is the 4714th Chinese year
