The Best Dog For You Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Not many people buy into horoscopes or zodiac signs, who can blame them, there's no proof to back it up! But when you get to the section in the back of a magazine, or Cosmo's weekly updates, you know it can't hurt to just check and see if there's anything good in store for you this week. I love reading what signs I'm most compatible with, what the best ice cream is for me or when I should take on a new project. While reading my horoscope this week I was inspired to do some digging and find what dogs are best for each zodiac sign; and here's what I found:

Aries: March 20-April 20

German Shephard

Aries are known for being courageous and energetic leaders. These all lead me to immediately think of German Shepherds, dogs who are famous for working with K-9 units and still being incredibly playful on their time off.

Taurus: April 20-May 21


The most well-known symbol for a Taurus is a bull, representing someone who is stubborn and lazy. They're also known to be very easy going and loveable. Sound familiar? A Beagle is a perfect match! Beagles are very amiable dogs, but nonetheless are always determined to get their way!

Gemini: May 21-June 21


Poodles are widely regarded as some of the most intelligent dogs around. They're often seen in competition, as they like to show off their skills! Gemini's, like Poodles, are keen on always learning, and also very proud to flaunt their knowledge.

Cancer: June 21-July 23


Cancer's are known for being lighthearted, jocular, fun loving people. They enjoy being around their family and friends and always having a good time! A dog just like this... definitely a pug. Pugs are goofy dogs that are bound to put a smile on your face every time they walk in a room, just like a Cancer.

Leo: July 23-August 23

Chocolate Lab

Lab's are known for being friendly and useful companions, very similar to that of a Leo, someone who is protective and generous. These two go hand in hand for sure!

Virgo: August 23-September 23


Task-oriented and a good listener describe not only a Virgo but also a Dalmatian perfectly. They're both always eager to listen to what you have to say and help give advice or solve any problems you may have!

Libra: September 23-October 23

Border Collie

If you know any Libra's then you know that they're full of energy and love to seek out the beauty in life. Border Collies are among the most active of all dogs and love exploring with their owners to see new things every day!

Scorpio: October 23-November 22

Cocker Spanial

Originally bred as hunting dogs Cocker Spaniels are notorious for being disciplined and protective. However, over time, they have also become passionate and emotional, just like Scorpios! Scorpios are highly confident and love to help others find what's best for them.

Sagittarius: November 22-December 22


A Sagittarius is someone who can sometimes be aloof, and usually prefers to be alone. They're very independent and like to do things on their own, very similar to a Basenji!

Capricorn: December 23-January 20

Basset Hound

The symbol for a Capricorn is a goat, one who continuously keeps climbing towards his goals. And once he achieves them, he takes a well-earned break. Just like Capricorns, Basset Hounds are very spirited, dedicated dogs, who appreciate a break after a long day of work.

Aquarius: January 20-February 18

Golden Retriever

Aquarius' are regarded as some of the friendliest of all the zodiac signs. So wouldn't it be fitting that they're paired with one of the friendliest dogs. I've never met a retriever that I didn't love, or who didn't love me back. Just like an Aquarius, they want to be friends with everyone they meet, a great quality in my opinion.

Pisces: February 18-March 20

Portuguese Water Dog

Relationship-oriented and empathetic, Pisces are recognized as great friends and even better partners. They're great to be around and love to be around the ones they love most. Portuguese Water Dogs are truly the perfect match for a Pisces! They love to hang out and are known to always bring a smile to your face.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.
