I was of the knowledge that the above phrase referred to the month of August but ‘googling’ the phrase I learned that it is actually July 3 through August 11th that they were referring to, id est, “The phrase is actually a reference to the fact that, during this time, the Sun occupies the same region of the sky as Sirius, the brightest star visible from any part of Earth and part of the constellation Canis Major, the Greater Dog. … They referred to this time as diēs caniculārēs, or “dog days.”
An interesting fact to add to your trivia journal.
