Bau: Dog Days of Summer

 

Bau Summer

Not a care in the world

According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, the Dog Days of summer are traditionally the 40 days beginning July 3 and ending August 11, which coincide with the dawn rising of Sirius, the Dog Star.

Sirius is the brightest star in the sky, if you don’t count the Sun. Under the right conditions, it can even be seen with the naked eye during the day. Sirius is one star in a group of stars that form the constellation Canis Major, meaning “Greater Dog.” It’s no surprise, then, that the nickname of this big, bold star is Dog Star.

  1. It looks as though you are having a wonderful time, Bau! There’s just something about those ‘Dog Days!’

  2. That dog is so cute. Interesting info. That dog, though, reminds me of a dog I met today who is having open heart surgery on Thursday. I’m praying for her. She has valley fever and now there is fluid on her heart.

  3. Interesting ! So, when we ask Sirius questions on our phone, we are actually asking a DOG for information !!!

    Lovely picture of Bau.
