2018 is "Year of the Dog" in the Chinese Zodiak. The year starts on Chinese New Year which falls on February 16 this year.
The dog is the eleventh of all the Chinese zodiac animals. Evidently, the way the myth goes...the order of the animals is said to be decided by the order in which the animals arrived to the Jade Emporer's party. The Monkey, Rooster, and Dog were in another country helping God defeat evil spirits. After defeating the evilspirits they headed off to the party. The Monkey, Rooster, and Dog all arrived to the party at the same time -- so the Jade Emperor went by the order they met the god in the other country.
People born in Dog years (1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006 and 2018) are honest and loyal. Dogs are the truest friends and most reliable partner. A Dog's most defining characteristic is their loyalty. They will never abandon their friends, family or work. Dog's are honest and true, amiable, kind, cautious and prudent. Born with good natures, and find communicating their thoughts to others difficult.
Speaking of Dogs, here in the Krimson Klover office, we couldn't agree more...we have an office full of (actual) dogs and they are all the most loyal and true friends we could ask for. Every day is a dog day, and they make our days brighter.
We've got River, the Austrailian Shepard. He'll talk to you if you aren't paying attention to him. River will also roll on his back for a belly rub if he sees you've got hands.
Josie is the only girl dog in the office. She's the sweetest border collie you ever did meet. Josie was rescued recently from the Boulder Humane Society.
Oscar, the black lab, he speaks with a British accent and he's got a very discriminating palette, he's super picky about the treats he'll eat. But he'll jump up and down and wag his tail when he's excited to see you. Oscar's nemesis is the tiniest of the dogs, Koa.
Koa is a long haired chihuahua rescued from the Colorado Corrections program. Koa swiffers-up all of the crumbs and will guilt you with his puppy eyes for as much lunch or treats as you can part with.
We have two corgies Kezi and Calvin that don't come to the office everday but we get to hang with them when they join us on hikes, these two have a lot of energy and the secretly want to join a pack of deer to live out their days in the wild.
