The Ancient Greeks thought that Sirius's emanations could affect dogs adversely, making them behave abnormally during the "dog days," the hottest days of the summer. Their excessive panting in hot weather was thought to place them at risk of desiccation and disease.
According to Brady’s Clavis Calendaria, 1813, the Dog Days were popularly believed to be an evil time "the Sea boiled, the Wine turned sour, Dogs grew mad, and all other creatures became languid; causing to man, among other diseases, burning fevers, hysterics, and phrensies."
|If you can tolerate an outdoor picnic during the dog days |
of summer, don't forget to pack your poodle!
|Leo loves his rainbow roses!|
|That's one patriotic pooch!|
|Elliott is looking good in his floral anklet!|
|Sherman is stylin' in his collar of black-eyed Susans!|
|It's hot out! Stay inside and pamper your pooch with |
peonies and a PETicure (wow, that was a cheesy pun even for us).
|For those hot summer weddings when you |
ask, "why didn't we get married in the spring?"
