Everyone has been talking about the dog days of summer and I was wondering why they were called that. I did a little research and found that the ancient Romans thought that Sirius, the Dog Star in the constellation, Canis Major, and also the brightest star in the night sky, was the cause of hot and steamy summer weather. I guess the name stuck and now I'm stuck in the dog days of summer.
