The eleventh sign of the zodiac, Aquarius, the water bearer, is one of only three signs denoted by human figures and is the symbol that is said to represent those born between January 22nd and February 20th each year. Aquarians and those with a heavy Aquarian influence, generally tend to be intellectual purists who demand some form of independence but are also concerned with the welfare of humanity. This sign is frequently drawn to technological pursuits or pursuits involving social reform and justice, and although they may sometimes appear to be distant and withdrawn, they are typically tolerant and understanding with most people, even those from very different backgrounds. They typically prefer to control their emotional expressions, some even go so far as to suppress those emotions, but they will freely pour out their ideas and exchange knowledge with anyone who is interested.
Famous Aquarius Dog Names in Pop Culture
George Herman Ruth Jr., better known as Babe Ruth, dominated the field as a baseball player and is frequently referred to as the greatest baseball player ever. He was active from 1914 to 1935 and during his professional tenure became one of the most revered figures of the time, leading Japanese soldiers to hurl the insult “To Hell with Babe Ruth” at American soldiers during the war. He established both batting and pitching records with the MLB, two of which, his slugging percentage at .690 and his on-base plus slugging at 1.164, still stand as of 2018, inspired the term “Ruthian”, to refer to something colossal, dramatic, or something that is done with great power, and was one of the first five inductees into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
When Donald Moore, the president and general manager of the Greensboro Grasshoppers baseball team in Greensboro, N.C., acquired a black Lab in the early 2000s, he gave her the name Miss Babe Ruth, to honor the legendary hitter and pitcher, and trained her to fetch baseball bats and bring baseballs to the umpire in a bucket that was specially adapted with a soft handle for her use and decorated with the word Babe painted on the side. She quickly became a fan favorite, working every game with dedication and enthusiasm, and socializing with players and fans alike. Memorabilia was produced in her honor, including baseball cards, stone coasters, and t-shirts and a statue of herself alongside her slightly less dedicated, but no less enthusiastic brother, Master Yogi Berra, the only canine to be removed from a professional game for relieving himself on the field. Many fans saw Miss Babe Ruth and her brother as a source of joy during the games and statues of the dogs were installed at the park. When Miss Babe Ruth retired in 2015 after delivering balls and bats to players for 649 consecutive games, she was given a grand send-off.
Miss Babe was replaced on the field by her niece, Miss Lou Lou Gehrig, but Miss Babe Ruth didn’t take her retirement lying down; later that same year she presented her decorated bucket, the one she used for her entire career, to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY, and she spent her last years as a roving ambassador for the team, greeting fans and posing for pictures, until she passed away in May of 2018 at twelve years of age.
