What is Procyon?
Since ancient times, dogs have been depicted as faithful and loyal companions. In Greek mythology, Canis Major (Great Dog) and Canis Minor (Little Dog) are the great hunter Orion’s two hunting dogs. The Little Dog was the favorite dog of Helen of Troy, whose prayers for its immortality were answered when it was placed among the stars.

Canis Minor has a principal star called Procyon (pronounced PRO-see-on). The name means “before the dog” indicating that it rises in the sky just before Sirius, the brightest star in Canis Major. Procyon is the seventh brightest star in the nighttime sky. What appears as a single star to the naked eye is actually a binary star system, a pair of stars that are held together by their mutual gravitational attraction and revolving about their common center of mass.

Relevance of Our Name

• Each individual working with us is a recognized expert
-- a luminous star -- in their respective field of study.

• In astronomy, binary stars are brighter. This also holds true in our business, where every individual and every business partner has an effect on the other. We recognize and value the interdependence in all our business relationships.

• And last but not least...We love dogs.
