The Dog is the eleventh of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. Monkey, Rooster and Dog were in another country, helping a god defeat evil spirits. After, they set off to the party together. Because they arrived at the same time, the Jade Emperor went by the order they met the god in the other country. Thus, Dog became eleventh.
The Dog is also associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī)xū (戌), and the hours 7–9 in the evening. In the terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Dog is yang.
In China, it is still popular to name dogs Wàng Cái (旺财). It means “prosperous wealth” and comes from dogs’ barking sounds (旺旺—wàng wàng).
Personality and characteristics
A Dog’s most defining characteristic is their loyalty. They will never abandon their friends, family or work.
Honest and just, they are popular in social circles. Everyone needs a Dog friend for advice and help. They are also good at helping others find and fix their bad habits.
Despite how they act, they are worried and anxious inside. However, they will not let this stop them. Once they decide on something, no one can persuade them against it.

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN WOMEN’S SPRING/SUMMER 2014
Just a “heads up”, dievca is feeling a bit emotionally raw and angry today — this gritty short film fits.
BDSM, Portable Camera, Futuristic, Goth, Punk, Leather, Stalking, Bondage, Neo-Noir
Kate Moss stars in her first campaign since turning 40 years old and it is for British label Alexander McQueen. She takes a stab at acting in a gritty short film by Steven Klein, which was developed to accompany the campaign stills. Klein is an American photographer based in New York.
The short film was inspired by the 1960s British thriller, Peeping Tom in which a serial killer murders women and uses a portable camera to record their dying expressions of terror. In this case, the camera zeros in on Kate and highlights her features, fashion and last expressions. Not quite terror, not quite welcoming~
BDSM: Would one of your fantasies include being pursued in Alexander McQueen leather clothing? Are you an exhibitionist desiring to be filmed by a Peeping Tom? Would you like to drop your leather kilt, be stripped of your leather bustier and restrained with belts on a bed?
All thoughts that went through dievca’s head. Hmmmm~still thinking.
