HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PISCES!
Born under the 12th sign of the Zodiac, perceptive Piscean dogs are as mystical as cats with their extraordinary powers. As a Pisces, you're an imaginative and sensitive pooch. Actually, your amazing canine sixth sense makes you an insightful creature. And your humans are aware of your gift. What makes you a good dog: As a touchy-feely pup, you can easily feel others' ups and downs. You often pull a Good Samaritan Lassie feat thanks to your superb intuition and warmhearted temperament.
What makes you a bad dog: Born under the sign of two fishes, you may fall victim to the cold, cruel world. Like a feral dog, you may run into unhealthy situations and unbalanced people. And if you don't stay clear of bad energy, it will make you look like a bad dog.
Grr-eat matches: Other emotionally deep water signs (Cancer and Scorpio) can nurture that super sensitive side of your personality.

PISCES (February 20 - March 20)
Listen up sensitive pooches! The New Moon on March 14 brings a new attitude on your health and well-being. That means, "Cut it out!" Lose the grudges and bad habits. This is a perfect time to beg for less food and more runs. Spring Fever will strike and you'll feel more playful (ready to train for agility and flyball?) and likely to fall in puppy love. Grr-eat days: 12, 13. Human tip: Let pooch get up on the bed or sofa, and repeat soft words such as "Mommy (or Daddy) loves you."
ARIES (March 21 - April 20)
It's the month to play introspective cartoon dog "Fred Basset" and re-examine yourself and your new relationships with two and four-leggers. Until the Full Moon on March 28, you may butt heads with an anti-dog human or pet. Ari, try to be patient. In dogese that means "Stop that whining" and you'll come out No. #1 before April. Grr-eat days: 14, 15. Human tip: Take the time to make sure that the athletic Aries dog of yours gets healthful outdoor exercise every day.
TAURUS (April 21 - May 21)
OK, Bulldogs, here's the scoop. Good things come your way this month IF you p-a-c-e yourself. In other words, expect doldrums if you don't retreat cat-style. Yeah, pooch we're talking about overdoing "Go-Dog" 24/7. Give it a rest already! You know the drill. Play hide-and-seek and chill out in your fave spot without people or pets. Grr-eat days: 7, 13. Human tip: Consider buying your dog a cozy dog bed to make daytime snoozing a comfortable pastime.
GEMINI (May 22 - June 21)
Uh-oh Geminian dogs. Trouble in paradise may turn your dog world into a CAT-astrophe this month. Unfortunately, as Spring comes into play on March 20 your humans may bark about business stuff. Just be your fun-loving self and you may help keep the peace. This is NOT the month to bark or go AWOL Gemini. Grr-eat days: 19, 20. Human tip: Since your dog provides unconditional love it may be the month to get your dog green I.D. tags in the shape of a shamrock.
CANCER (June 22 - July 23)
Your sweet canine dreams may be in the doggie bag this month Fido, especially during the New Moon on March 14. Pre-Spring love is yours for the fetching. It's time to lose the howling. Pair up with pet and human chums – and kiss renewed vigor hello. Winter is yesterday's news and outdoor fun is almost here. Grr-eat days: 22, 23. Human tip: Give Fido a pre-Spring bath and shower her before, during and after with hugs and affirmations.
LEO (July 24 - August 23)
Mighty Mars gets you out of the doghouse this month. Imagine: You're finally going to be the leader of the pack. Or if you are the only dog it's your month to enjoy real human attention. That means plenty of "Let's go bye-bye!" outings for you Lion dogs. Go ahead and bark for joy! Grr-eat days: 24, 25. Human tip: Check out the Internet and see what type of Springtime interactive exercise toys are available for your beloved dog.
VIRGO (August 24 - September 23)
Open up your paws Rover – it's time to share. Due to the New Moon on March 14 you'll be splitting the dog kibble and human food. While licking your chops after your fair share of your human's St. Patrick's Day dinner, why not mull over non-food ways to feel happier this month? You'll want to be a lean dog machine this Spring. Grr-eat days: 26, 27. Human tip: Take your pooch to a baseball game at your local park for canine-human bonding.
LIBRA (September 24 - October 23)
Hate to be a downer but March is not your pet month this year, Lib. Finding out that you-know-who may have some flaws (a temper or aloof) will upset you enough to put your paws over your eyes. As Spring nears on March 20, you may feel like barking nonstop or shredding your bone to show that you're feeling unbalanced. Grr-eat days: 5, 29. Human tip: Try meditating with pup at your feet or side and gently rub your fingers behind her ears and on her tummy.
SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22)
Hey Scorpy – no need telling you that Spring Fever is in the air. The catch is, that new dog on the block (or one next door that you never befriended) may not feel friendly about you, a human-like Marmaduke wannabe. Be patient. Wait-and-see what the New Moon on March 14 brings. You may want to try reverse psychology: Act like you're more interested in your master than that stuck-up pooch. Grr-eat days: 2, 30. Human tip: Consider getting a dog dental checkup for your peace of mind and your canine's canine cuspids.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 - December 21)
March is the month for you to renew your body and spirit. Seasonal allergies getting you down? Blame it on the blooming tree buds. Just sneeze in front of your humans (more than once!) and you'll get that vet visit. The outcome: Outdoor activities will be on your agenda. Grr-eat days: 5, 28. Human tip: Make sure your first-aid kit is fully stocked for pup in case of a Springtime mishap.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 20)
All work and no play makes a Cappie a dull dog. To boost your spirit join in your human's Spring cleaning. Yep, fetching old newspapers and new bones under the couch can be something different to do. Hint: If the scene gets too boisterous go to your safe haven to regroup. Breathe deep and envision your oasis: park or the beach. Grr-eat days: 7, 8. Human tip: Splurge on that Springtime leash for your dog.
AQUARIUS (January 21 - February 19)
Pet squabbles may wreak havoc on Water Bearer canines till the Full Moon on March 28. Read: If you've got roomies or littermates, expect ATTITUDE. In fact, if "Bad Dog" behavior happens you may be the scapegoat. Look innocent!!! Hold up your head. Use eye contact with you-know-who for effect. Car rides with your fave human (yes, you can sit in the passenger seat!) will be your reward. Grr-eat days: 9, 10. Purchase a dog video, complete with Springtime Mother Nature's wolf sounds.
