Wiktionary

  1. dog-tiredadjective

    Exhausted.

    Etymology: Dog tired is an old English phrase usually hyphenated to dog-tired. An adjectival phrase meaning to be physically exhausted, it derives from an old tale of Alfred the Great who used to send his sons out with his extensive kennels of hunting dogs. Whichever of his sons, be it 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. The tradition was continued for a few generations but is not noted in literature after Bede's Ecclesiastical History of the English People.

Examples of dog-tired in a Sentence

  1. Simone Missick:

    It was insane, and in the moment you don't realize how big of a day it is until you sit down exhausted at five o'clock, you're not even shooting a full day like we normally do. Normally, you come in, it's 5:00 AM, you go through hair and makeup and you shoot until five in the afternoon. These are like six, seven days, seven-hour shoots, and we were dog tired by the end of it. It's Because we were doing so many jobs.
