The black dog followed him home every night for a week, and each night the creature was bigger than it had been the night before…
You can find stories about the spectral Black Dog all over Europe, especially in Britain, and the legend is still very much alive today – people still report sightings of the creature.
After extensive research, folklorist Mark Norman’s book about British Black Dog folklore will soon be released and you can pre-order it here I’m sure it will be very much worthwhile!
