Everyday English – Idioms with the word Dog IV


Let’s look at idioms this week that talk about ‘DOGS’

Every dog has its day

“I got a new car! This is really my day today!”
This idiom means that everyone will get a chance at some time or have an opportunity to be great. It comes from a time when dogs were thought of as very low animals. So even though you are low now, you will have a chance someday, even for only one day.
“You didn’t make the soccer team this season but keep practicing! Every dog has its day.”
