Getting Sirius

In the final installment of our week of dog day posts, I'm getting literal, with a winsome pup at the center of this 1925 ad, which ostensibly promotes a new line of 'yard stick high' kitchen sinks. The picture's saturated colors, clear light, and idyllic imagery certainly belie the tumultuous reputation of this late-summer stretch. Time seems to stand still in the illustration; I wish it could be so in reality, as these lazy days begin their fade into autumn.
