The Dog Days of Summer

Or in our case, the Cat Days of Summer

Hobbes love to lay on the porch, all stretched out, in the shade.
He loves the heat that we all cower in fear of.
On 100* days, he will only come in for food or a drop of cream.
Then he's right back outside again.
These are the days when he knows what the weather will be like and doesn't drive us all mad by being perpetually on the wrong side of the door.
When he's happy, we're all happy.
I guess there's something good to be said about 100* days after all.


You didn't think I was going to let another cliche'/common saying pass without finding out its origins did you??

So, just what is meant by the "Dog Days of Summer"?
If you'll click HERE, you can read all about it.
You're welcome.


  1. Thank you for that piece of information. I always thought it was because dogs got overheated and would just lie around as Hobbes is doing. Have a great weekend.

  2. Cats just know the very best way to be comfortable. Hobbes is one of my favorites cats even though we've never met.
