The Dog Days of Summer are nearly upon us. They are considered the hottest, most sultry days of the year. They received their name from the Romans who marked their beginning each year when Sirius, the brightest star in the constellation Canis Major (Big Dog) rose in the east with the sun. By tradition, they last 40 days. Currently The Old Farmer’s Almanac lists their start in the Northern Hemisphere on July 3 and their end as August 11.
Webster says the dog days are a period of inactivity. Why not take advantage of these days of natural lassitude to curl up, your dog at your feet, and read a good book—or even a few good books? In light of the season, we have a few suggestions of books for our dog-loving friends.
