Dogs are the idealists of the world, always looking for ways to make it a better place. You hate fights and conflicts, although if you have too, you can deal with them. You occasionally see things in extremes – if the world is so evil, you’ll just wait for the good bits to come to you – but in reality you just want to create a perfect world of love, peace, and harmony.
In fact, Dogs are the nicest, most considerate of all. We would be much poorer without Dogs – they are after all, man’s best friend and you are indeed, a devoted, faithful friend! Tolerance is your strongest point and thus you are forgiving and empathetic, and never pre-judge others when they behave badly… and your shoulder is always available to collect any tears. In fact, you have an endless capacity for taking on everyone’s problems and helping them. You have the largest heart, and this can result in you feeling too much and empathising too much. There are only a few causes you can care about and only so much time in a day, so the disadvantage is that you occasionally worry too much about the problems of the world and suffer needlessly as a result.
Business & Career
Dogs will see any job they are given to the end. You can do unbelievably hard work – however, sometimes so much that your health can be damaged, because you simply won’t take time out. One thing the Dog needs to learn is to… relax. You feel best where someone else sets the program, and you always excel if your work is to do with looking after others’ requirements and benefit. As Dogs are ferociously protective and determined in the face of threats, they can also be very good… guard dogs.
Dogs can easily go in for social reform, or the law of some sort because they love order and harmony. Dogs are also much happier being led than being the boss and especially not leading large corporations or being high-flyers; the Dog doesn’t really go in for big ideas. They are often better working for even themselves and like better to make their living silently and fairly. In fact, the Dog can work from home with ease, since this is where they feel the best. They have lots of small ideas – concrete, no-nonsense, feasible ideas that are intended to improve the quality of our lives. Thus they do best in any caring profession, like counselling, social work, charity work, medicine and the law. You are also artistic and gifted, and work well in the areas of research, science, and arts and, anything to do with personal decoration. And you love old-fashioned gadgets.
Romance & Relationship
“and they call it… puppy love…” so the song went. Well, the Dog in love is a lovesick puppy. As with all things, you expect the moon and much more… as you are so idealistic. So, if you don’t get it, you will whine in desolation. Unfortunately, the problem is, you often believe you’ve found your soul-mate and are frustrated when you realize you made a bad call. If you are lucky and met your soul-mate early, you can marry swiftly, have lots of kids, and live in paradise.
You won’t find a better partner than if you fall for a Dog; but ask yourself, is that all you want – just a companion?
They are nice, loyal, loving, and devoted and thus really make for excellent companions, just don’t expect a lot of romance, intrigue or affairs! If you like the sound of this, then the Dog is the top choice. In essence, Dogs like marriage. It brings security, puts them straight into a team and if you do find your perfect partner, you will share all with them. However, you need continuous reassurance when in love, and shouldn’t ever be left alone uncared for, feeling unloved and brooding and idle in the Dog house, or you can end up whining – but not dining!
As they are naive in love and always believe the best of their future partners, they are easy to get into marriage; if they get a healthy diet and plenty of exercise, they do make super partners who will return to you faithful service and warmth in abundance when you return home – whether you are away one day, or one week, one month…
As for sex and passion, it is a wonderful way for you to express love – honestly, intensely and openly, without anything weird or risqué; for you it’s all about holding hands, kissing, cuddling and touching. Any close contact will do, as you are a physical person who – like Dogs in reality – like to be patted, rubbed and stroked!
As really pleasant people they won’t try to clean you up or make judgments, however, when they are too obliging, others can easily take advantage of this, but often don’t, because the Dog is so very, very nice. So nice that, just look a bit sad… and the Dog is yours – in and out of bed!
Dogs make good parents who are easy-going, obedient, thoughtful and forgiving. They can be dragged down by revolt or indifference because they expect a lot from their families. If you want to distress the Dog, just forget a birthday, anniversary or celebration… for Dogs, family is sacrosanct. Without family they have no purpose, no safety, comfort or security, with it, they feel surrounded by their loved ones and feel at peace.
Finally, because they have their litter’s welfare at heart, they can be overprotective and controlling, which is something they need to learn to change, or it will give their children hang-ups and future problems in dealing with reality.
