We love dogs.
We really love our dogs, don’t we?
They are our most loyal companion but more, they are our friend, counsellor, work-mate, eyes, ears, protector, inspiration and so much more!
The Good People too, are closely connected to dogs. Way back in episodes 4 and 5, we took a sneaky peek at the Black Shuck, Hellhounds and also Faerie Guardian Dogs. That is, Faerie who either have the appearance of a dog-like creature, or take the shape of a dog-like creature.
On this episode we discover that, when it comes to dogs, we have something remarkable in common with the Good People: a long-standing bond, and deep affection for ordinary, companion dogs.
Join Kitty to hear tales of ordinary dogs which play an important part in Faerie society, and share a tale of a very special, silver-eyed Faerie puppy.
