Black Dogs - Devil Dogs:

The True Evil Hounds of Hell

 

Devil Dogs: The True Evil Hounds of Hell

 

By Leslie Danielle Ferrymen

Teufel Hunden, allegedly meaning Devil Dogs in German, is a motivational nickname for a U.S. Marine. It is also the name of the most feared animal from the other side. With tales over the centuries of huge black dogs hunting for souls or like the an unidentified animal found dead in Galveston Island September 1st, 2008, it is believed to be one of the Campeche Devil dog Beast. A pack of large black dogs that are said to date back to the time of Jean Lafitte the pirate. Residents of the small Island have been hearing “chilling animal cries” since 1891, with sightings of an animal with glowing red eyes that apparently mated with a doberman and a rottweiler before it died.

Many living dogs are often referred to as devil dogs. Dobermans, Pittbulls Rottweiler, and of course all evil Chihuahuas that have ever lived.

Perro Negro...The True Evil Hounds of Hell

 

The most famous hellhound is probably Cerberus, the hound of Hades from Greek mythology. Hellhounds are also famous for appearing in Celtic mythology as part of the Wild Hunt. These hounds are given several different names in local folklore, but they display typical hellhound characteristics. The myth is common across Great Britain, and many names are given to the apparitions: Black Shuck of East Anglia (which has its roots in the Norse mythology rather than that of the Celts), Moddey Dhoo of the Isle of Man, Gwyllgi of Wales, and so on. See Barghest. The earliest mention of these myths are in both Walter Map's De Nugis Curialium (1190) and the Welsh myth cycle of the Four Branches of the Mabinogi (ca. 10th-13th century)

In Southern Mexican and Central American folklore, the Cadejo is a black dog that haunts naughty young men who walk late at night on rural roads. The term is also common in American blues music, such as in Robert Johnson's "Hellhound on my Trail".

Hellhounds are normally found near graveyards.

In Catalan myth, Dip is an evil, black, hairy dog, an emissary of the Devil, who sucks people's blood. Like other figures associated with demons in Catalan myth, he is lame in one leg.

THE BLACK DEVIL DOG Dip is pictured on the escutcheon of Pratdip.

"Cerberus" The most Evil Devil Dog Of them all!

The name "Cerberus" pronounced [sur-ber-uhs] is a Latinised version of the Greek Kerberos, which may be related to the Sanskrit word "śarvara-", used as an epithet of one of the dogs of Yama, from a Proto-Indo-European word *ḱerberos, meaning "spotted" (This etymology suffers from the fact that it includes a reconstructed *b, which is extremely rare in Proto-Indo-European. Yet according to Pokorny it is well distributed, with additional apparent cognates in Slavic, British and Lithuanian.). The use of a dog is uncertain, although mythologists have speculated that the association was first made in the city of Trikarenos in Phliasia.

Cerberus is said to be the sibling of the Lernaean Hydra, the Nemean Lion, and the Chimaera. There have been many attempts to explain the depiction of Cerberus. Greek philosopher, Heraclitus, claimed that Cerberus had two pups which were never away from their father, as such Cerberus was in fact a normal (however very large) dog but artists incorporating the two pups into their work made it appear as if his two children were in fact extra heads. Classical historians have dismissed Heraclitus' explanation as "feeble". Mythologers have speculated that if Cerberus was given his name in Trikarenos it could be interpreted as "three karenos". Certain experts believe that the monster was inspired by the golden jackal.

Cerberus (Greek: Κέρβερος, Kérberos) in Greek and Roman mythology, is a multi-headed dog which guards the gates of Hades, to prevent those who have crossed the river Styx from ever escaping. Cerberus featured in many works of ancient Greek and Roman literature and in works of both ancient and modern art and architecture. As with most creatures from classical mythology, the depiction and background surrounding Cerberus often differed across various works by different authors of the era, the most notable difference being his number of heads; while most sources describe or depict three heads, others show him with two or even just one, a lesser number show a variable amount, sometimes as high as 50.

Black and Devil Dog Descriptiopns

Many Dogs from hell are said to howl so loud Banshee's have to cover their ears. These great black beast are said to weigh in an excess of 150 lbs and can partially eat a whole cow in one or two bites. Many believe they have movable jays like a Boa constrictor.

Devil dogs in the Southern part of the world tend to be larger then those from the North.

Some describe their coats as shine others say their coats are black and absorb and reflect no light.

Devil and black dog eyes are either frey or blood red, silver or blue. Green eyed devil dogs are rare and usually considered to just have arrived on earth from hell.

They are said to have a stench like sulphur. And many have strange powers over other creatures including humans.

Some Black Dogs are said to be able to disappear. Others say they are made up of evil shadows.

Voodoo Devil dogs are said to be able to change into human form. They are said to be the souls of those turned into zombies and cursed to live as dogs through eternity. The spell can only be broken at the moment they are changing from human to dog if you sever their heads with a blessed machete. Also the Zombie from who's soul it was is destroyed also at this moment.

It is believed by many that the soul of the dog possess the zombie and this is why they must obey commands of their owner. Or so an old Haitian belief states.

THE VOODOO DOGS

A pack of supernatural black dogs is said to roam the hurricane swept Island of Galveston, Texas since the Great Storm of 1900 or possibly earlier. Legend has it that twelve black puppies were adopted by a downtown business owner when their mongrel (Coyote or prairie wolf, small, swift wolf, Canis latrans, native to W North America), mother was killed. For over a century, inhabitants of West Galveston Island have told tales of these large black hellhounds with malevolent flaming eyes (or in some variants of the legend a single eye) that are red or alternatively yellow. They vary in size and stature from that of simply a large dog to being the size of a small horse.

But the Black Pack also are known to be benevolent at times and bring warnings of disasters. Many say they saw them in the days before the great storm of 1900. These dog like chupacabra like creatures are said to be so evil that that they only listen to the commands of the Devil himself. Some stories state that death comes quick if you see a Black Dog in Texas.And death will fall days, months, or years after viewing the demonic beasts. Others say that death may not follow at all, but something "bad" will happen to someone close to those who set eyes on the twelve ghost hounds.

The Black Dog of nearby Clear Lake, TX does not take the guise of a large, fearsome hound. Instead, it appears as a small, sad black dog. The Black Dog of San Leon leaves droppings with human fingers poking out of it . It also appears to enjoy human company, sometimes and has been known to protect lost children rom great danger. Seeing the small Black Dog of San Leon once is supposedly a sign of good luck to come, twice brings a life of long suffering bad luck And you will not have heirs. And in your cursed life you see him a third time it means instant death.

The Devil Dogs are said to possess great evil magical supernatural powers that defy explanation. If your on Galveston Island be aware of the shadows day and night. For you might be followed by the dogs of Campeche where ever you go.

The dogs are more then able to become just shadows and are said to follow anyone that might have strange or covert intentions. Many locals will tell you they will closely follow any stranger on the Island until they leave. low growls are often heard when one is near and the smell of wet dog is experienced.

The black dogs are known to breath heavily on the necks of those that have no good on their minds. One recent tale tells of a tourist that said she was chased back to her hotel by a large black beast. but she tells that she thinks the Campeche Ghost Dog was just trying to get her out of harms way. These Supernatural dogs are said to try to protect the innocent and the intended victims of unscrupulous people also.

Lafitte respected children and woman and the feeble minded. It is said that he commanded his dogs not to harm those that could not protect themselves.

The name of Campeche comes from the Mayan word "Ah Kim Pech", which means "The Place of Boa Serpent".

His Black Hellhound Devil Dogs are also said to haunt New Orleans, Barataria and anywhere Lafitte set foot in his lifetime. Some say the shadows of these dogs can be seen in the waves that crash ashore along thee gulf of Mexico.

Mujeres Island (Isla Mujeres) near Cancun. Isla Mujeres is the name of a small island, as well as the town on that island, a short distance off the coast of the northeast of the Yucatán Peninsula in the Caribbean Sea. Isla Mujeres is also one of the eight municipalities of the Mexican state of Quintana Roo. It is about 13 km northeast of Cancún, at 21.20° North, 86.72° West. The island is some 7 km long and 650 meters wide. In the 2005 census the municipality had a population of 13,315, and the town had a population of 11,147. The municipality, which lies mostly on the mainland in the northeastern corner of the state, has an area of 1,100 km² (424.7 sq mi).

Transportation on Isla Mujeres consists primarily of taxis or golf carts and moped scooters. As of 2005 there were 121 taxis, 500 golf carts, and 1500 moped scooters.

In Pre-Columbian times the island was sacred to the Mayan moon goddess, Ix Chel. When the Spanish arrived here in the 16th century they named it "Isla Mujeres" meaning "Island of Women" because of the many cult images of the moon goddess here.

There was a small Mayan temple on the south tip of the island, however in 1988 Hurricane Gilbert caused extensive damage to it, leaving most of the foundation and a very small portion of the temple. And near it is the ruins of Lafittes home and where several Black dogs and thie ghost shadows are said to prowl and guard.

For centuries, inhabitants of East Anglia have told tales of a large black hellhound with malevolent flaming eyes (or in some variants of the legend a single eye) that are red or alternatively green. They are described as being ‘like saucers’. According to reports, the beast varies in size and stature from that of simply a large dog to being the size of a horse.

The legends of Black Shuck roaming the Anglian countryside date back to the time of the Vikings. His name may derive from the Anglo-Saxon word scucca meaning “demon”, or possibly from the local dialect word shucky meaning “shaggy” or “hairy”. The legend may have been part of the inspiration for the Sherlock Holmes novel The Hound of the Baskervilles.

Sometimes Black Shuck is referred to as the Doom Dog. It is said that his appearance bodes ill to the beholder, although not always. More often than not, stories tell of Black Shuck terrifying his victims, but leaving them alone to continue living normal lives. In some cases it has supposedly happened before close relatives to the observer die or become ill.

Sometimes Black Shuck has appeared headless, and at other times he appears to float on a carpet of mist. According to folklore, the spectre often haunts graveyards, sideroads, crossroads and dark forests. Black Shuck is also said to haunt the coast road between West Runton and Overstrand.

One of the most notable reports of Black Shuck is of his appearance at the churches of Bungay and Blythburgh in Suffolk. On 4 August 1577, at Blythburgh, Black Shuck is said to have burst in through the church doors. He ran up the nave, past a large congregation, killing a man and boy and causing the church tower to collapse through the roof. As the dog left, he left scorch marks on the north door which can be seen at the church to this day.

The encounter on the same day at Bungay was described in “A Straunge and Terrible Wunder” by the Reverend Abraham Fleming in 1577:

“ This black dog, or the divel in such a linenesse (God hee knoweth al who worketh all,) runing all along down the body of the church with great swiftnesse, and incredible haste, among the people, in a visible fourm and shape, passed between two persons, as they were kneeling uppon their knees, and occupied in prayer as it seemed, wrung the necks of them bothe at one instant clene backward, in somuch that even at a mome[n]t where they kneeled, they stra[n]gely dyed. ”

Other accounts attribute the event to lightning or the Devil. The scorch marks on the door are referred to by the locals as “the devil’s fingerprints”, and the event is remembered in this verse:
“ All down the church in midst of fire, the hellish monster flew, and, passing onward to the quire, he many people slew. ”

Barghest, Bargtjest, Bo-guest, Bargest or Barguest is the name often given in the north of England, especially in Yorkshire, to a legendary monstrous black dog with huge teeth and claws, though in other cases the name can refer to a ghost or Household elf, especially in Northumberland and Durham (see Cauld Lad of Hylton). One is said to frequent a remote gorge named Troller's Gill. There is also a story of a Barghest entering the city of York occasionally, where, according to legend, it preys on lone travellers in the city's narrow Snickelways. Whitby is also associated with the spectre.

The derivation of the word barghest is disputed. Ghost in the north of England was once pronounced guest, and the name is thought to be burh-ghest: town-ghost. Others explain it as German Berg-geist (mountain spirit), or Bär-geist (bear-spirit), in allusion to its alleged appearance at times as a bear. Another mooted derivation is 'Bier-Geist', the 'spirit of the funeral bier'.

VOODOO HOODOO DEVIL DOGS IN NEW ORLEANS

The Great voodoo Hoodoo Queen Marie Laveau was said to have owned a pack of her own "Devil Voodoo Dogs. " And had supposedly gifted Laffite a few puppies.

Laveau is said to have used her Devil dogs to patrol the cemeteries at night. And guard her as she slept. Her Dogs are said to have been very large and solid black in color with red firey eyes.

The most favored of her pack was a large male named Enfant Noir. He is said to be actually burried with her in her New Orleans whitewashed tall tomb.

Laveau's Devil dogs are not from hell but said to have been possessed by actual Zombie spirits or ghede. The actual spirits of people turned into Zombies is said to live in the bodies of large dogs and cats until their real bodies are put to rest. Or so real New Orleans voodoo legends state.

Marie Laveau was also said to use her great black Devil dogs (sometimes called "Zombie Dogs") To hunt and kill Grunch ("Louisiana Chubacabra").

Many belive it was Laveau's strange Voodoo hoodoo powers that created the Devil Dog In America. They say she mated the largest dogs she could find then turned them into acxtual zombies. The Dogs are said to live forever unless their curse can be broken.

These large Devil dogs are said to roam New Orleans and many were killed during hurricane Katrina or scaterred through out the mid south.

Marie Laveau's Voodoo Hoodooo Black Dogs are said to be able to propogate tehir evil and father pups from normal dogs.

The Beast of Bodmin

The Beast of Bodmin, like The Beast of Exmoor, is a phantom wild cat which is purported to range in Cornwall in the United Kingdom. Bodmin Moor became a centre of these sightings with occasional reports of mutilated slain livestock: the alleged panther-like cats of the same region came to be popularly known as the Beast of Bodmin Moor.

In general, scientists reject such claims because of the improbably large numbers necessary to maintain a breeding population and because climate and food supply issues would make such purported creatures' survival in reported habitats unlikely.

A long held hypothesis suggested the possibility that alien big cats at large in the United Kingdom could have been imported as part of private collections or zoos, later escaped or set free. An escaped big cat could not be reported to the authorities due to the illegality of owning and importing the animals.

The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food decided to conduct an official investigation in 1995. The study's findings decided there was "no verifiable evidence" of exotic felines loose in Britain, and that the mauled farm animals could have been attacked by common indigenous species. The report stated that "the investigation could not prove that a 'big cat' is not present."

However the police have released classified pictures of large cats shot by farmers.

Less than a week after the government report, a boy was walking by the River Fowey when he discovered a large cat skull. Measuring about four inches wide and seven inches long (10 × 18 cm), the skull was minus its lower jaw but possessed two sharp, prominent canines that suggested that it might have been a leopard. The story hit the national press at about the same time of the official denial of alien big cat evidence on Bodmin Moor.

The skull was sent to the Natural History Museum in London for verification. They determined that it was a genuine skull from a young male leopard, but also found that the cat had not died in Britain and that the skull had been imported as part of a leopard-skin rug. The back of the skull was cleanly cut off in a way that is commonly used to mount the head on a rug. There was an egg case inside the skull that had been laid by a tropical cockroach that could not possibly be found in Britain. There were also cut marks on the skull indicating the flesh had been scraped off with a knife, and the skull had begun to decompose only after a recent submersion in water.

Cadejo

The cadejo (IPA pronunication /ka.ðe.xo/) is a character from Salvadoran, Nicaraguan,Costa Rican, Honduran, Guatemalan and southern Mexican folklore. There is a good, white cadejo and an evil, black cadejo. Both are spirits that appear at night to travellers: the white to protect them from harm during their journey, the black (sometimes an incarnation of the devil), to kill them. They usually appear in the form of a large (up to the size of a cow), shaggy dog with burning red eyes and a goat's hooves, although in some areas they have more bull-like characteristics. According to the stories, many have tried to kill the black cadejo but have failed and perished. Also it is said that if a cadejo is killed, it will smell terrible for several days, and then its body will disappear. Some Guatemalan folklore also tells of a cadejo that guards drunks against anyone who tries to rob or hurt them. When the cadejo is near, it is said to bring about a strong goat-like smell. Most people say never to turn your back to the creature because otherwise you will go crazy.

In popular etymology, the name cadejo is thought to have derived from the Spanish word "cadena", meaning "chain"; the cadejo is at times represented as dragging a chain behind him. There is a fairly large member of the weasel family, the tayra, which in common speech is called a cadejo and is cited as a possible source of the legend.

It ranges in many sizes according to different tales in various regions. It lurks in graveyards and dark alleys, waiting to attack a passing victim. It has a distinctive smell of concentrated urine and burning sulphur. It rattles with a jerking motion contracting its pharynx. Its gaze freezes anyone who makes eye contact. It glitters in the pitch dark with skin and short hair, similar to that of a pig.

There are three types of black cadejos:

The first is the devil himself in the form of a large, wounded dog with hoofed feet that are bound with red-hot chains. It is said that not even the white cadejo is able to completely stop him. Unlike the regular black cadejo it is not likely to pursue and attack a passing human, as it is a scout - the eyes of evil. Instead, anyone who spots him will have a sad event. In the short story "Leyenda del Cadejo" ("Legend of the Cadejo") by Nobel Prize laureate Miguel Ángel Asturias, this variety of cadejo terrorizes a young abbess and robs her of her braid.

The second type of cadejo is the regular cadejo, the mysterious evil dog. It kills and savagely tears through its victim. First it demoralizes him with a series of sounds and other signs that it is nearby. Then, after the victim is scared, it leaps forward, and will kill him if the white cadejo is not near.

The final, and least powerful type of black cadejo is the offspring of a normal dog and the 'regular' cadejo. It is a mortal hybrid and can (with difficulty) be killed by a strong man (bearing in mind that most men in those regions only carry a machete for protection). Once dead, it will completely rot in a matter of seconds, leaving behind a stain of evil, on which grass and moss will never grow again. This cadejo will never bite its victim. Instead, he kicks and pecks them with his snout. After this happens, people say "Lo jugo el cadejo"-which means "he\she was handled by the cadejo". The victim goes mad. This term is sometimes applied to people that are born with a mental illness.

A fairly popular version of the legend in El Salvador talks about two brothers who walk into the house of a black magician. During a storm, he asks the boys to help him with some logs for a fire. Both boys slack on the job but eat the man's food. Once he finds out the little bit of food he had is missing and that there is not enough wood for his fire, he puts a curse on the road that leads to the boy's village. Voices bother the boys and when they turn their backs on the voices they get turned into creatures: a white Cadejo and a black one. After going back to their village in their cursed form they get kicked out and have no choice but to wander.

A hellhound is a dog of Hell, found in mythology, folklore and fiction. Hellhounds typically have features such as black fur color, glowing red eyes, super strength or speed, ghostly or phantom characteristics, and sometimes even the ability to talk. Hellhounds are often associated with fire, and may have fire-based abilities and appearances. They are often assigned to guard the entrance to the world of the dead or undertake other duties related to the afterlife or the supernatural, such as hunting down lost souls or guarding a supernatural treasure. As legend goes, if one happened to see the hellhound three times, he or she will die an abrupt and unseen death.

Marines and The Devil Dog Name

No one can question the bravery and valor of the U.S. Marines. But is the legend about their "Devil Dogs" nickname based on fact? Every Leatherneck is indocrinated with the tale of how Marines came to be called "Devil Dogs." If you visit Marine recruiting sites on the Web you'll find this World War I legend also used as a tool to encourage young people to join the Marine Corps today. There's even an old recruiting poster that was created by artist Charles B. Falls around 1918. Emblazoned with the words "Teufel Hunden, German Nickname for U.S. Marines - Devil Dog Recruiting Station," the poster is one of the earliest known references to the legend, said to have come about as the result of fierce fighting in 1918 by the Marines in France's Belleau Wood (Bois Belleau in French, "woods of beautful water"). But the poster commits the same error that almost all versions of the legend do: it gets the German wrong.

The first thing any good student of German should notice about the poster is that the German word for "Devil Dogs" is misspelled. In German the term would not be two words, but one. The plural of Hund is Hunde, not "Hunden." So the poster and any Marine references to the German nickname should read Teufelshunde—one word with a connecting s. Most of the references I have found on the Web have the German incorrect in one way or another. Even the Marine Corps' own Parris Island Museum has it wrong. Since the museum's founding in 1975, the sign on display there has read "Teuelhunden" rather than the correct "Teufelshunde."

Facts like these make you wonder if the story itself is true. Like many things on the Web and in history, this legend gets repeated over and over by many different people. But like many other things on the Web and in history, that doesn't mean it's true. One thing we can state with certainty is that very few accounts of this German "Devil Dogs" legend get the German right. Almost always the German in the legend fails to follow the rules of German (capitalized nouns, compounds written as one word), so the writers are not even bothering to check if the German is accurate. (This includes CBSNews.com!) Sometimes the German word is written "Teufelhunden" or "Teufelhunde"—closer but still not quite right.

Pronunciation: der Teufel dare TOY-fel (devil), der Hund dare HOONT (dog),
die Teufelshunde dee TOY-fels-HOON-duh

http://german.about.com/od/culture/a/germyth13.htm

Currently in the Marine Corps, the term Devil Dog is a very common nickname for all Marines. "Devil Dog" was historically a well accepted term of endearment. Professional Military Education had stated "Devil Dog" is a title of honor, and should be regarded as such. "Devil Dog" should be called out when praising ones actions when they are in keeping with the high standards of the Corps. The "dog" in the phrase is usually depicted as a bulldog in line with the original 1918 poster. The bull dog is the official mascot of the Corps. A line of bulldogs had served as the unofficial mascot of the Corps since the 1920s, most named after General Chesty Puller.

 

The United States Marines Corps bulldog design was inspected by the Department of the Navy, Headquarters, United States Marine Corps, Washington, D. C. on January 25, 1983 and adequately conformed to the Department of Navy's specifications and approved. Subsequent to this approval, it was further approved for product and licensing distribution.

Upon approval of the United States Marine Corps, Department of Navy, Headquarters, United States Marine Corps, the copyright application was submitted. It took approximately four years to have the copyright approved. It was issued on February 3, 1983. The copyright was a significant step in having the Headquarters, US Marine Corps ranking the Bulldog as the official Bulldog for the United States Marine Corps.

The Black Dog of the Ojai Valley

The Black Dog of the Ojai Valley

 

 

By Richard Senate

Artwork Ricardo Pustanio

 

There is a story told and retold of a great supernatural hound that haunts the area around Creek Road near Ojai. The story as told to me was that the huge beast was brought to the valley by a European Vampire who settled in the valley long ago. But, that was not the only account of the origins of the monster dog. One account said it was a war dog brought by the Spanish to hunt down or intimidate the Chumash people to keep them from leaving the Mission. One story even said that a Chumash medicine man had spoke out against the Spanish and told his people not to be tricked into leaving their ways and joining the Mission. The Spanish heard of this and a arty of soldiers went with the dog. When he refused to join the mission the great black dog was set upon him and killed him! The spirit of the medicine man then entered the hound and it turned on the Spanish soldiers. It leaped up and ripped out the throat of the Spanish officer and killed him. Now the supernatural beast haunts Creek Road. In a communication with a Chumash elder I was told yet another story. The accounts of their shamen becoming dogs as a shapeshifter are false and do not reflect Chumash traditions.

Ghost Dogs

“The discrepancies I found were, first with our Shaman returning as black animals to haunt the living...not true..our medicine is such that a return from Similaksa (the afterlife) is unnecessary..what you refer to are called Nunashish,or evil spirits who existed long before the Chumash. They are called upon to guard the sacred sites ,not Chumash as "dogs".

The massive spirit dog may not be the spirit of medicine men at all but, rather evil elemental spirit that was somehow conjured and set to guard a sacred site. This might account for the frightening nature of these beasts and for their attacks on people, something out of keeping with the Chumash people, living or dead.

The stories are logical only because the things are seen repeatedly and mostly by non-Native Americans. When they encounter such a creature it is natural that an answer needs to be found for the origins of the thing. So European Vampire stories and tales that may have their roots in Mexico are used to rationalize the supernatural being. Is there a sacred site along Creek Road? It is very possible. The historic record tells of a shrine located at Casitas Springs that held a sacred image. Other such shrines may have existed on the trail to the Ojai Valley that follows Creek Road.

One legend told in the valley, and one that has not one iota of proof, speaks of a massacre of Chumash people by Yankees in the Creek Road area. In the early 19th Century, the Chumash who didn’t join the Mission were attempting to continue their way of life. Ranchers blamed them for the deaths of cattle and theft of livestock. They were cornered and told they had to be moved to the missions. They refused, and in the confusion a gun battle erupted and the small band was murdered, men, women and children. This does sound a bit like the account attributed to the Mission Soldiers with the dog and might be the root of the tale. The one thing that is consistent is that the animal continues to be seen on Creek Road, Foster Park, and even as far down as the north Ventura Avenue. Those who have seen the creature agree on its massive size, some say its as large as a small horse or pony! If it is an evil spirit it is something that shouldn’t be challenged.

THE PLAIN BLACK DOG

A black dog is the name given to a spectral being found primarily in the folklores of the British Isles. The black dog is essentially a nocturnal spectre, often said to be associated with the Devil, and its appearance was regarded as a portent of death. It is generally supposed to be larger than a physical dog, and often has large, glowing eyes.

Real Devil BLACK  Dogs -Perro Negro

Perro Negro

It is often associated with electrical storms (such as Black Shuck's appearance at Bungay, Suffolk), and also with crossroads, places of execution and ancient pathways.

The origins of the black dog are difficult to discern. It is impossible to ascertain whether the phantom originated in the Celtic or Germanic elements in British culture. Throughout European mythology, dogs have been associated with death. Examples of this are the Cŵn Annwn , Garmr and Cerberus , all of whom were in some way guardians of the underworld. This association seems to be due to the scavenging habits of dogs. It is possible that the black dog is a survival of these beliefs.

Black dogs are almost universally regarded as malevolent, and a few (such as the Barghest) are said to be directly harmful. Some, however, like the Gurt Dog in Somerset and the Black Dog of the Hanging Hills, are said to behave benevolently.


How can you say ghost exist unless you try to experience it yourself? If you are not willing to try, then you have no factual basis for your conclusion. To put this another way, don't decide it before you try it. All beliefs come from a experience. Many believe people for their word, others not so trusting simply need to be shown. And still more do not believe what they see even if it shoved in their face.

Black dogs by locale

Some of the better-known black dogs are the Barghest of Yorkshire and Black Shuck of East Anglia.

Various other forms are recorded in folklore:

England

Black Dogs have been reported from almost all the counties of England, the exceptions being Middlesex and Rutland.

* On Dartmoor, the notorious squire Cabell was said to have been a huntsman who sold his soul to the Devil. When he died in 1677, phantom black hounds are said to have appeared around his burial chamber. The ghostly huntsman is said to ride with the phantom dogs; this tale inspired Conan Doyle to write his well-known story The Hound of the Baskervilles.

* In Lancashire the spectre-hound is called Barguist, Gytrash, Padfoot, Shag, Trash, Striker or Skriker.

* In Tring, Hertfordshire, a fierce-looking black hound with red eyes is said to haunt the middle of the road in the area where the gibbet once stood. Locally it is known as Lean Dog, and is the spirit of a chimney sweep executed for murder. When approached, the lean dog sinks into the ground.

* The Gurt Dog of Somerset is an example of a benevolent dog. It was said that mothers would allow their children to play unsupervised on the Quantock Hills because they believed that the Gurt Dog would protect them. It would also accompany lone travellers in the area, acting as a protector and guide.

* Stories are told of a Black Dog in Twyford, near Winchester.

* In Wakefield, the local version of the legend is known as "Padfoot".[citation needed]

* A black dog has been said to haunt the Newgate Prison for over 400 years, appearing before executions. According to legend, in 1596, a scholar was sent to the prison for witchcraft, but was killed and eaten by starving prisoners before he was given a trial. The dog was said to appear soon after, and although the terrified men killed their guards and escaped, the beast is said to have haunted them wherever they fled.

* Galley Hill in Luton, Bedfordshire, is said to have been haunted by a black dog ever since a storm set the gibbet alight sometime in the 18th century.

* Betchworth Castle in Surrey is said to be haunted by a black dog that prowls the ruins at night.

* In Norfolk, Suffolk and the northern parts of Essex a black dog, known as Black Shuck or Shug is regarded to be relatively benign and said to accompany women on their way home in the role of protector rather than a portent of ill omen.

Channel Islands and Isle of Man
This section is missing citations or needs footnotes. Please help add inline citations to guard against copyright violations and factual inaccuracies. (May 2009)

* In the Isle of Man it is styled Mauthe Dhoog, or Moddey Dhoo (black dog in Manx). It is said to haunt the environs of Peel Castle.People believe that anyone who sees the dog will die soon after the encounter with the dog. It is mentioned by Sir Walter Scott in The Lay of the Last Minstrel--

"For he was speechless, ghastly, wan
Like him of whom the Story ran
Who spoke the spectre hound in Man."

* In the Channel Island of Guernsey, there are two named dogs. One, Tchico (Tchi-coh two Norman words for dog, whence cur), is headless, and is supposed to be the phantom of a past Bailiff of Guernsey, Gaultier de la Salle, who was hanged for falsely accusing one of his vassals. The other dog is known as Bodu or tchen Bodu (tchen being dog in Dgèrnésiais). His appearance, usually in the Clos du Valle, foretells death of the viewer or someone close to him. There are also numerous other unnamed apparitions, usually associated with placenames derived from bête (beast).

* In Jersey folklore, the Black Dog of Death is also called the Tchico, but a related belief in the Tchian d'Bouôlé (Black Dog of Bouley) tells of a phantom dog whose appearance presages storms. The story is believed to have been encouraged by smugglers who wanted to discourage nocturnal movements by people who might witness the movement of contraband.

The monstrous black dog reputed to haunt Bouley Bay in Jersey is depicted on this pub sign

* On mainland Normandy, the dog is referred to as the Rongeur d'Os (bone-gnawer).

Wales

* In Wales its counterpart was the gwyllgi, the "Dog of Darkness", a frightful apparition of a mastiff with baleful breath and blazing red eyes. Also related are the spectral Cŵn Annwn, connected with the otherworld realm of Annwn referred to in the Four Branches of the Mabinogi and elsewhere; however they are described as being dazzling white rather than black in the medieval text.

Cornwall

* A black dog is said to have appeared to wrestlers at Whiteborough, a tumulus near Launceston.

* A black dog was once said to haunt the main road between Bodmin and Launceston near Linkinhorne.

North America

*Louisiana Voodoo Devil Dogs. Fierce huge black dogs. Their coats do not reflect light. Are said to be the lost souls of Zombies incarnate. The Bloodline in New Orleans and the deep south from Miami, Florida to Galveston Island, Texas are said to all trace back to the original evil cursed blood line pair Marie Laveau owned.

*Galveston Island, Texas The Campeche Devil dogs roam the island still!

*Gettysburg The Devil Dogs of the south are said to howl in the night guarding the battlefield.

*Miami Huge Black Voodoo Dogs are said to prowl the beach at night looking for souls to steal. They are said to be the original Voodoo Dogs brought over from Haiti in the 1800's. Perro Negro as many call them are said to weigh over 200 lbs.

Latin America

* Black dogs with fiery eyes are reported throughout Latin America from Mexico to Argentina under a variety of names including the Perro Negro (Spanish for Black Dog), Nahual (Mexico), Huay Chivo and Huay Pek (Mexico) - alternatively spelled Uay/Way/Waay Chivo/Pek, Cadejo (Central America), Familiar (Argentina) and Lobisón (Argentina). They are usually said to be either incarnations of the Devil or a shape-changing sorcerer.
