National Geographic, Dog days, greek mythology and Ishmaelitic traditional texts

Why Do We Call Them the ‘Dog Days’ of Summer?
It doesn’t have to do with dogs lying around in the heat—the phrase comes from ancient Greek beliefs about a star.
By Becky Little, National Geographic
I find a similar comment in a traditional Arabic/Ishmaelitic text which follows: الشعرى هو النجم المضيء الذي يخرج في شدة الحر. It means Sirius is a bright star which appears in extremely hot weather.
