Astrology & Dogs … Yes or No?

December 26th, 2018

 

I have mixed feelings when it comes to astrology. I will occasionally read my horoscope, and if it’s a good one I will like it and believe it, but if it’s a bad or strange one, I will ignore it and think what a lot of ….

Just out of interest I dug into the horoscopes of my dogs and some of the things I read there are pretty interesting. Here are some:

Mr. Tank, Scottie ~ Aries: March 21 – April 20

The sign of Aries is the Ram which is ruled by the planet Mars. Mars is known as “the bright and burning one” ruled by passion and drive. Aries is a fire sign which makes the Aries dog confident and strong. Taking no for an answer is not in their mindset. When an Aries dog does not come when they are called, don’t take it personally. As a fire sign, the Aries dog is extremely smart and playful. They want to be the centre of your world and your possessions. Naturally inquisitive and self-assured, the Aries dog can find themselves getting into accidents and you may find yourself at the vet more than you would like.

According to this all terriers should be Aries as taking no for an answer is definitely not normal and they also have pretty strong selective hearing. But again it all depends what kind of treats I have in my pocket! Luckily there’ve been no accidents in Mr. Tank’s life, and I don’t think he is as inquisitive as he thinks he is.

Martha, Scottie ~ Leo: July 21 – August 20

The sign of Leo is the Lion which is ruled by the Sun. The sun is warming, noble, and generous. Leo is a fire sign with energy to burn. Leos love the outdoors and everything that comes with it. They also enjoy barking. It doesn’t matter if a Leo dog is with you or at the dog park, he or she loves to be the centre of attention. A huge positive of having a dog with their sign in Leo is that they are the most loyal dogs in the zodiac.

This pretty much fits on Martha! Endless energy, centre of attention, organising everyone and she does enjoy barking … sometimes even for no reason. Or at least I don’t know the reason… I’m sure she has one?

Rosie ~ Taurus: April 21 – May 20

The sign of Taurus is the Bull which is ruled by the planet Venus. Venus is the planet of love, beauty, and gentleness. Taurus is an earth sign and creates a lot of willpower. The Taurus dog wants to have their cake and eat it too. When they want to do something, then that is the way it is going to be. Taurus dogs are inherently shy and need to feel safe. They love to be shown affection but only when they are in the mood. The Taurus dog needs a balanced and peaceful environment. Loud noises and chaos will get them stressed and upset.

Yes, Rosie is beautiful and gentle, and yes she has lots of willpower to get the forgotten snack out of my hand bag, to bark in the morning until I get up and feed her … but Rosie, shy? No way. She is one of the most confident dogs I’ve ever had, loud noises don’t bother here (actually she loves fireworks and gets really excited from all the bangs and lights), she ignores any chaos … and stress and upset? I’ve seen her upset only once when she had a sick puppy and didn’t know what to do with it. That was upsetting for all of us.

If you want to find out more about dogs and astrology, take a look at this article in Dogs Naturally magazine and I’d love to know, in the comments below, if the horoscope matches your dog’s personality or not?

What People Say...

When we got home from the hospital with our new arrival it was clear that Perri, one of our miniature poodles, maternal instincts kicked in and went into overdrive. She was immediately acting like a mother separated from her pups and just wanted to care for the ‘naked puppy’. She has a history of being so motherly, even to the point that she has produced milk for puppies that aren’t hers even before she had a litter and has mothered every type of animal she could. She was panting, pacing and unable to relax for long at all. She could whine for England!

We tried other herbal remedies we had at hand for a previous anxious dog and nothing worked at all. She stopped eating and stressed herself into overheating too. Her stress was starting to impact the other dogs and she just couldn’t unwind. No matter if we worked off her energy with a walk and she wasn’t even interested in her usual mind games or call games. We also couldn’t offer long-lasting treats and chews too often as they gave her an upset stomach.

As soon as the Calming Floral Spray arrived I gave the bed a spritz and put some on her coat and the change was instant. She just got on her bed and fell asleep. She stopped panting and barely whines now, started eating again and she only does a bit of whining if the baby cries. We have now been able to positively reinforce her calm behaviour. I honestly can’t recommend this enough to people.
