August 2013

Cartoon by Gymglish

Definitions

Dog Days (idiom): The hottest period of the year, occurring in July and August (N.hemisphere).

Also: A period of lethargy and laziness, as you may have experienced this summer.

The dog days are over...

Now all that remains are the dogs:

Snoopy: Best friend is a canary. Has a house, yet sleeps on roof. Likely on drugs.

Snowy (aka Milou): White dog of white journalist Tintin. Probably racist.

Lassie: Genius-level canine. Once split an atom. Still pees on the rug occasionally.
