Friends or Foe?
Leave your chewed slippers at the door, Kitty is here to talk about Faerie Dogs of The Good People, The Wee Folk or the Sidhe.
Faerie of traditional Irish Faerie Folklore are old, clever and can be terrifying. They are all around us and watching, always watching.
But what are they thinking? Are they impressed at they way we care for our animals or is their bite worse than their bark? Should we fear them?
In this episode, Part One of Faerie Dogs, Kitty bins the science fiction and tries hard not to be sentimental (but I love dogs!) to take a fresh, open-minded look at Faerie Dogs and ponders…
Are they really demonic?
Do they kill Humans for fun?
What of those dogs who guard and protect Humans?
To get to the bottom of this and more, Kitty looks at personal encounters with Faerie Dogs over history and discovers just how wildly varied they are. Could there be many kinds of Faerie Dog, or just the one with a terrible case of split personality? And, she shares the story of her own encounter with a Faerie Dog.
We enjoy a joke with 9 ½ fingered Irish Comedian Dave Allen and as always, Kitty explains why it’s okay to believe in Faeries.
