Hair of the Dog

The 'hair of the dog' is part of a longer expression - 'the hair of
the dog that bit you'. This goes back to the old belief that the hair
of a dog that bites someone could be used as an antidote against the
bad effects of the bite. By extension, another drink or two after a
drinking binge would be the cure for a hangover.
