2018 is the "Year of Wuxu" according to the Chinese lunar calendar, namely the zodiac calendar Year of the Dog.

The Chinese calendar combines solar, lunar and 60 Stem-Branch counting systems.

The 60 Stem-Branch calendar uses the names of the Yin-Yang Five Elements (Metal, Water, Wood, Fire, and Earth) and 12 animal signs in sequence.

The Dog is the eleventh animal of the Chinese zodiac and it corresponds to "Xu" in the Chinese Earthly Branch.

“Xu Hour” in Chinese is the period of the day from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

A dog's personality is loyal and smart, and its bark sounds like the Chinese word “wang,” which denotes prosperity of the family business.

In addition, there are popular sayings about auspicious dogs, rich dogs and happy dogs.
