THE BLACK DOG OMEN
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
The black dog omen.
There is a spooky legend in Connecticut that no one
lives to prove if the legend is true or not. The legend goes something like
this. “If a man shall meet the Black Dog once, it shall be for joy; and if
twice, it shall be for sorrow; and the third time, he shall die.” As you can
tell, it would be hard for anyone to prove this legend as the person in question
would no longer be alive to tell the story.
However, there have been hikers tell of near death
experiences while hiking at Hanging Hills in Connecticut.
One such story goes, a couple of friends deciding
to go hiking in the Hanging Hills, the first guy had not really thought of this
place as a great place for a vacation. However, when he arrived a day before his
friend he was actually glad that his friend had chosen the place. It was very
beautiful and quiet serene. He went on a small hike that day in anticipation of
hiking the rougher terrain when his friend arrived the next day.
After his short hike, he returned to the inn and
the innkeeper asked how he had enjoyed the hike as she gave him a refill of
He said he had enjoyed the hike and had some
unexpected company. The innkeeper said that she thought know one else was crazy
enough to hiking in the rain.
The guy then explained that the company was not a
person, but a cute little black dog. The little dog followed him up the mountain
and back down again. When the guy looked at up at the innkeeper, she was as pale
as a ghost. She told him this was good. Of course, the guy had to wonder why a
little black dog accompany him on his hike was not good. This is where she
explained to him the saying or legend referring to the little black dog.
The guy just laughed it off and said it was nothing more than superstition. She
then told him the story of Mr. Pynchon. He saw the black dog on two occasions,
the second time he saw the dog, his friend fell to his death. The next time he
went up the mountain he fell to his death, everyone around the area believe he
saw that little black dog before he died.
The guy still refused to believe such nonsense.
His friend arrived the next morning and he told him
about the little black dog and the legend. They both had a good laugh and went
out hiking. When they were about half way up the mountain, he saw the little
black dog. As soon as he told his friend, “there’s the dog,” he lost his footing
and began sliding down the mountain. He tried everything in vain to stop. When
he did stop sliding, he could move his leg. A mountain rescue team to get him
down from the mountain. His leg had been broken in two places.
Therefore, whether the legend is true or not, if
you see a little black dog on Hanging Hills Mountain, it would be best to find
another place to hike.
