The Black Dog, Little Eaton


Little Eaton in Derbyshire has a black dog legend. It is said that the large black animal was a working, hunting hound owned by the last squire of the village, which howled constantly for three days and nights as its master was dying. When the dog ceased howling, the household staff and the villagers knew that the squire had died. The legend states that if the howling should ever begin again, it means that a local figure of distinction is due to die.
