“Dog Days” are the hottest, most sultry days of summer. In the northern hemisphere, they usually fall between early July and early September. In the southern hemisphere they are usually between January and early March. Dog Days can also define a time period or event that is very hot or stagnant, or marked by a lack of progress. The name comes from the ancient belief that Sirius, also called the Dog Star, in close proximity to the sun was responsible for the hot weather.
The end of summer does not seem to curtail a dog’s joy of fetching. . .
Patrolling. . .
Retrieving. . .
Greeting. . .
or Playing. . .
I love this exuberant pack of hounds frolicking on these jet skis~
And this unlikely pair of companions waiting for their owner’s boat to return. . .
“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.” ~ Roger Caras
