Henry here with a guest blog post on something I share with Mom.

The year of the Fire Monkey occurs every 60 years, the last time was in 1956, the year Mom was born.  The year 2016, the year I was born, is a Fire Monkey year running from February 8, 2016 to January 27, 2017.  Not sure of my exact birthday as I am a rescue but it is the end of October so Mom and I decided we can share the same birthday, October 29th!

The year of the Monkey occurs every 12 years.  Other types of Monkey years are Metal, Water, Wood and Earth.

Other famous Fire Monkey babies born in 2016 and 2017?

  • Deveraux Octavian Basil Jagger born December 8th to Mick Jagger.  The eighth child of the 73 year old Sir Mick Jagger.  Long live rock-n-roll!
  • River Rocket Oliver son of Chef Jamie Oliver born on August 8th.  River’s siblings?  Poppy Honey Rose, 14, Daisy Boo Pamela, 12, Petal Blossom Rainbow, 6, and Buddy Bear Maurice, 5.
  • Sawyer Mathew Shay born December 31st, 10 minutes to midnight, making him one of the last babies to be born in 2016.  And his twin Everett Jackson Shay born just after midnight on January 1st, making him one of the first new year’s babies of 2017.
  • Hugo Wilson Dallas son of Prince Charming and Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas) born on June 1st.  As you may recall from an earlier post, my Mom picked out my name Henry before she found me.  She was reading a book called The Corner of Bitter and Sweet and the main character was Henry who she loved.  At the same time she was watching Once Upon a Time on Netflix.  Henry was the son of the Savior and the grandchild of Prince Charming and Snow White.  She watched Henry grow from a boy to a brave and smart young man.  I plan to grow from a small rescue puppy into a brave and smart dog.

Monkeys are known as:  Ambitious, adventurous, clever and lucky.  The outgoing nature of the Monkey makes them great performers.  Monkeys have quick confident responses to anything they face.  This coupled with their intelligence make them helpful allies in solving problems.

The Fire Monkey is the most passionate and energetic of the Monkeys.  Fire Monkeys tend to be adventurous and risk-takers (this explains why I already stand and balance on my brother’s feeding dishes at mealtimes).

Fire Monkeys love to be the center of attention and I keep Roscoe, Monty and Mom hopping!

      1. Not much of a performer, although I don’t mind getting up in front of groups of people. Clever isn’t me–maybe witty instead. I take only calculated risks–never going to do extreme sports. Ambitious only to a degree. If I were really ambitious, I’d have reached best-seller status by now. 😉 But thanks anyway.
