This Week's Idioms

Top pets: sleeping dogs: Sleeping dogs: Dog asleep in sunshine

In our Advanced 2 class, we've been looking at Animal Idioms. One such idiom was, "let sleeping dogs lie". This means, "don't mention something that happened in the past to avoid arguments or problems." The Guardian Newspaper have taken up this idiom and converted it into its literal meaning, and have organised a photographic competition about sleeping dogs. See some of the entries here.
