Horoscopes

Aries Dog (March 21 – April 19): The Leader of the Pack Photo Aries Dog (March 21 – April 19): The Leader of the Pack

If an Aries dog chooses to adopt you, make sure you have a lot of energy. The first sign of the Zodiac, they are spirited and vivacious with an antic sense of humor.

Taurus Dog (April 20 – May 20): Give Me Shelter Photo Taurus Dog (April 20 – May 20): Give Me Shelter

A Taurus dog is inherently shy and has a great need for security. They don't like to ride in the car, hate to move and abhor loud noises and chaos of any kind. Try not to argue in front of your little Taurean and take more care on July 4th with your Taurus pooch than you would with other signs. Both thunderstorms and fireworks send them into a tizzy.

Gemini Dog (May 21 – June 20): One for the Road Photo Gemini Dog (May 21 – June 20): One for the Road

A Gemini dog is an excellent companion for owners who enjoy a lot of outdoor activity. Ruled by Mercury, these pups are intelligent and excitable; they require a big yard to race around in or long walks to burn off nervous energy. They also have a very low boredom point and need constant changes of scenery, toys, activities and food types. The more exotic the better – they are food adventurists.
