Happy Chinese New Year—What to Expect During the Year of the Dog


You might not be a superstitious person, and neither are we, really. But we do work in a very competitive industry, so it is always a good idea to consider everything—even the Chinese Zodiac.


We didn’t rush out and find an expert to tell us what the Chinese New Year would bring to us, we’ve connected a few of the dots ourselves. We want to share what we found out.




The Dog is the eleventh animal in the Chinese Zodiac. Legend says, the Jade Emperor invited twelve animals to represent the twelve phases of the moon in the lunar calendar. Each year would be represented by a different animal with the specific characteristics of that animal. The order of the animals in the zodiac was determined based on who arrived first. Because the Dog was out of the country with the Monkey and Rooster, he ended up as the eleventh to arrive.


Those born in the following years were born during the year of the Dog: 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, and 2030.


A dog’s most defining characteristic is their loyalty. They never abandon their friends, family, or work. They tend to be honest and just in their social circles, making them very popular among those they most associate with. They are also great supporters of helping their friends overcome bad habits. They are tenacious, which can cause them to worry excessively. But once they decide on something, it is difficult to persuade them against it.





Not to be the bearer of bad news, but if you were born in a previous Year of the Dog, you are headed into the unluckiest year of the lunar cycle. So, avoid wearing the color red. Stay clear of the numbers one, three, and nine. You might consider carrying an emerald as a good luck charm.


For the rest of us, we can expect a year lurking with trouble and danger. There will be unforeseeable problems in work. Your financial situation may also be at risk during this time. 


Communication will be key to weathering the storm of 2018. In order to avoid making things worse, Dogs should keep a low profile. Thinking before they speak and act is the key to survival.


Let’s be honest. As ominous as this might seem, there are still possibilities to make this the greatest year ever. Particularly when you make the choice to buy a new Chrysler 300. While it might not be a great idea to get a red one—particularly if you are a Dog yourself—with such great financial options offered through Larry H. Miller Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram in Bountiful, there will be less to worry about for your financial security this year.


Here's to a great year, no matter what comes! 新年快
