JULY 3: THE START OF THE DOG DAYS OF SUMMER

“dog days” originally referred to the period of the summer

when  sirius, the dog star rose each day around the same time as the sun.

even though the two events don’t line up around this time as perfectly anymore,

it’s still the name given to

 the really, really hot stretch of summer from july 3 to august 11.

  2. Love this! We just discovered that our new dog, Sasha, loves to chase and bite at spraying water. That cute picture reminds me of her joy and lack of bashfulness as she leaps, twirls, and usually gracelessly topples to the ground in her pursuit of the water. Just to get back up and do it again. 🙂
