The expression "three dog night" originated with the Eskimos
and means a very cold night - so cold that you have to bed down with three dogs to keep warm.
This is the band "Three Dog Night" which began in 1968 and continues today. Wonder how they chose their name......any thoughts?

From wikipedia-
The name "Three Dog Night" supposedly refers to an expression meaning a night so cold that one needs to sleep while embracing three dogs. It's unclear whether the term originated with Inuit or with Indigenous Australians. An official commentary included in the CD set “Celebrate: The Three Dog Night Story, 1965-1975” stated that vocalist Danny Hutton’s girlfriend saw a documentary on TV in which the custom was explained to have originated with the latter.
