Did You Know?

  • The phrase "dog days of summer" comes from astronomy. Sirius, the Dog Star, rises in late summer as part of Canis Major, the Greater Dog constellation. Sirius is brighter, hotter, and larger than the Sun (and is also a Very Good Boy!)
  • And while we're on the subject of dogs and summer, have you seen photographer Seth Casteel's series, "Underwater Dogs"?
