Chinese animal zodiac is a repeating cycle of 12 years – each year being represented by an animal and its attributes and traditionally the animals were used to date the years. In order the 12 animals are: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. 2018 is the year of the Dog.
