Update: September 1:

Working on September Saints right now....

The term “dog days” was used by the Greeks in Aristotle’s Physics.  Astronomer Geminus, around 70 B.C., wrote: “It is generally believed that Sirius produces the heat of the ‘dog days,’ but this is an error, for the star merely marks a season of the year when the sun’s heat is the greatest.”

The lectionary of the 1559 edition of the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer indicates: “Naonae. Dog days begin” with the readings for July 7 & end August 18. But the readings for September 5 indicate: “Naonae. Dog days end.”  This corresponds very closely to the lectionary of the 1611 edition of the King James Bible which indicates the Dog Days beginning on July 6 & ending on September 5.
