They are called the “dog days of summer”; namely because the Canis Major, or “Dog Star” is the closest to the sun and thought to be responsible for the heat. We at Ruff Wear, however, think the “dog days of summer” are named after the endless adventures you and your dog can have together as the days get longer and warmer.
In true spirit, we too are getting out more, enjoying the longer days, and taking more time off to spend with our dogs. So, if you notice our blog content is a little shorter, you’ll know why. After all, it’s a dog’s life—we are merely companions to enjoy it with them.
