Dog Tired After Work

Some days just aren’t long enough

Dog Tired After Work

Dog tired is an old English phrase meaning to be physically exhausted. It’s derived from an old tale of Alfred the Great who used to send his sons out with his kennels of hunting dogs. Whichever of his sons (Athelbrod or Edwin) were able to catch more of the hounds would gain their father’s right hand side at the dinner table that evening. These chases would leave them “dog-tired” yet merry at their victory. (Wiktionary)
