leave a comment »

The phrase “entre chien et loup,” meaning “between dog and wolf,” which is a French colloquialism for twilight. The phrase signifies a brief instant in the blue light of dusk when the dog, who roams during the day, is about to retreat and when the wolf, who roams at night, just begins to come out.
