Pamper Your Pet During the Dog Days of Summer

Did you ever wonder where the expression “Dog Days of Summer” comes from? That phrase actually dates back to ancient times and relates to the brightest star in the sky, Sirius, the Dog Star. At the peak of summer, the Sun lies in the same part of the sky as Sirius, and early civilizations thought that the combined heat of Sirius and the Sun caused midsummer’s sweltering weather. Of course, the appearance of Sirius doesn’t actually affect the weather, but the “Dog Days” connection with sultry summer heat has continued to this day.
