Dog Days of Summer

According to folklore and farmer's almanacs, this time of year marks the end of the "Dog Days of Summer." Different sources give different date ranges for the "Dog Days of Summer," with an ending date between August 11 and September1.

Dog Days refer to summer's hottest (and in Missouri - most humid) days. The Greeks and Romans first referred to this period as Dog Days because it coincided with the time when Sirius (the dog star) rose at the same time as the sun. Although the rotation of Earth has changed and Sirius no longer rises before or with the sun, the term "Dog Days of Summer" remains.

In honor of the end of Dog Days, why not share a grass-fed treat with your canine companion? US Wellness Meats offers pet burger, organ meats, and a variety of bones to help satisfy the traditional nutritional needs of dogs.
