Rudy is a Libra | Dog Astrology

On October 10 our yellow lab, Rudy, celebrated his second birthday.  Caren of Cat Chat with Caren and Cody and Dakota's Den commented on Rudy's birthday blog post that she was a Libra, too, and it got me thinking about dog astrology.  

Here's more about the Libra dog according to Pet Planet's Dogscopes:
Element:  Air
Modality: Cardinal
Rules: Venus
Symbol: The Scales
Healing combo: Taurus and Pisces  The Dog Daddy is Taurus;  The Grandma is Pisces
Most compatible with:  Gemini, Aquarius, Leo, and Sagittarius  Oh, dear!  I'm a Capricorn; Jeffie's an Aries.  Lucy was a Cancer;  Tucker was a Scorpio.  Skeeter?  Skeeter's a cat!

What a Libra dog daydreams about:  Peace on earth and a life of luxury  Sounds good to me!

Keywords:  balanced, calm, peaceful, beautiful, sweet, accommodating, fair-minded, charming, social  We're working on the calm!

The Personality Snapshot for a Libra Dog:
  • loves to have an equal partner to do everything with And that would be Jeffie.
  • has an innate sense of fair play.  True, except when there's popcorn at stake!
  • loves all things beautiful
  • needs the scales to be perfectly balanced
  • needs social events with beautiful pooches and people
  • needs peace at any price  Absolutely true.  Say "darn" with the right inflection and Rudy comes to see what he can do to make things bright and happy again.
  • is all sweetness and light. 
  • needs attention  In Rudy's case, this ties in with "calm" since he's still, in many ways, a puppy with lots of that puppy energy.
  • needs to please others  Oh, yes!
Planet Dog Dogscopes goes on to say:
Mighty Dog Meets Aphrodite:With so much discord in the world, who couldn't use some beauty and harmony? Thank heavens for the charming and gracious ways of a little Libran pup to bring everything back into perfect equanimity and equipoise. Libran pooches are the peacemakers of the zodiac, blessed with an innate sense of balance. You'll rarely see your Libran darling display any unpleasant or extreme behaviors. Gentle as a lamb and gorgeous as a supermodel, it's as if she were born with a perfect pedigree and manners to boot. The Libran's soul purpose is to charm and compliment you, her partner for life. She will do everything in her puppy powers to please and accommodate you. You will always come first, as Librans want nothing more than to please their other half. To them, life is one grand balancing act. Their mission is to keep everything flowing smoothly. They will always avoid the ugliness of extremes.
All You Need is love:
Librans abhor nothing more than confrontation and fighting. It completely throws them out of whack. You know the saying "War is harmful to children and other living things"? This goes double for your Libran pooch. She's ultra-sensitive to conflict. A war-like home environment, discord, anger and injustice will flip her scales, so it's advisable to do everything you can to keep the peace around the home front. If you're a more tempestuous type of human, she'll happily give you a course in anger management, letting it all just roll off your back. What's worth getting so worked up about? For Venus-ruled Libra, having peace of mind is the highest virtue. Why sweat the small stuff? Life is so beautiful, so enjoyable, and so harmonious when we all just get along and love each other. Easy-going Libran doggie will teach you how to kick the trifles and petty problems with her pretty little heels. Anger is so unbecoming. This little love goddess Dog Star knows that beauty and harmony have to rule.
It's very true that Rudy is eager to please others and not just the humans.  He's a dog that tries very hard to "get it right" with the two leggers and with other dogs.   Charming and beautiful?  Well, of course!

Rudy doesn't like discord or negativity of any kind.  Just think the word "darn," and he's by your side ready with kisses and wagging his tail.  An anger management teacher?  An example of the "I love life" philosophy?  Yes.   But isn't that true of all of our dogs?  I think so.

In fact, I think I'm going to go collect some peace and love from my little Libran Dog Star right now!


  1. What a great "Dogscope". I had to laugh at the "fair play" unless there is popcorn at stake! LOL!

    1. Rudy only tries to steal or ignore the taking turns thing when it's about popcorn! Go figure?!

  2. Interesting, I've never seen animal planets dogscopes, but I'm off to check out mine. I wonder if they have one for crazy lab? :-)

    1. Now, I'll be watching for a blog post about Sampson and Delilah's dogscopes!

  3. Woof! Woof! LOVE it! Definitely there's still lots of puppy-ness on just being 2. Pleasing others is a big part of a dog's life life. Golden LOVE. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar


Go ahead... bark at us!
