Here’s a little something that crossed my path today as I was going through my “Forgotten English” desk calendar.
Dog Days of Summer
These begin on July 3 and continue to August 11. They derive their name from the heliscal rising and setting of Sirius, the dog-star…
Basically, the rest of the description says that the Egyptians revered these days because that was when the crops and water flow were best. However, the Romans hated this time of year because it fell during the most unhealthy time of the year for them.
Just thought that I’d share that with you…as we suffer through the dog days of summer yet again!
Are you searching for a dog to adopt? Choosing what dog you’d like to take home can be a difficult decision. Some dog breeds are small while others can reach 200 pounds or more, so you want to make sure you choose a dog appropriate for your house and personality.
