Dog Days of Summer, frequently used to describe the hot period between early July and early September, has its origins in the Late Latin Diēs Canīculārēs (Dog Star days), so called because the Dog Star (Sirius) rises and sets with the sun during this time. The expression Dog Days has also come to be used for any period of lethargy, inactivity or indolence.
