Yes, Cancer is the crab.
You must be thinking of the Chinese zodiac, and that has a dog (but no elephant).

You're thinking of the Chinese Calendar zodiac animals. In that particular calendar the animals rotate every year (i.e. this is the year of the Tiger, last year I think it was the rat).

The animals in the Chinese calendar are:
  1. Dog
    Tiger
    Rabbit
    Monkey
    Rat
    Dragon
    Ram
    Snake
    Rooster
    Pig
    Ox
    Horse - nearly forgot this one and it's mine.

So you are right, just not for the Greek/Roman Zodiac (Libra, Cancer, Aquarius, Virgo, Pisces, Capricorn, Aries, Gemini, Leo, Taurus, Scorpio and Sagittarius), which is where Ganz is going with their collection.

Personally, I wish they were using the Chinese ones as there are indeed 12 animals; however, I have a feeling because Ty used the idea sometime back for the Beanie Babies they were afraid there'd be arguments for copyright.

This goes doubly true as Cancer is a crab and Scorpio is a scorpion... let alone the issues with Virgo (which I could say who she is, but it'd be censored here), Libra (scales), Gemini (twins, which does this mean it'll be MORE because two pets would be needed, or odder, conjoined twins - contrary to the mythology?), and Sagittarius (half human/half horse). Aquarius at least can be interpreted as a beaver - mythology I believe it's a water beaver apparently.

(BTW, I don't follow any of this stuff, but it is fun to do the history on it. )

Well now that was a nice surprise to see something other than a dog, at least each month will be a new pet and not just the same one only a different color. Yipee! I am so happy because the Taurus just happens to be my birthstone and I will be sitting with my finger on the "add to cart" button on May 1st. Thanks Ganz for finally getting one right.
