Monsters H&T: Black Dogs
Black Dogs are one of those monsters that hard to take seriously at first because, as skeptics are quick to point out, they could be just black dogs; but a Black Dog monster traditionally has some extremely strange traits. Fur dark than a black night, eyes that burn like fire, and a tendency to appear and vanish from nowhere... they appear to be some sort of local spirits, guardians in some cases, that frequent their areas for untold ages and reasons.
