It is said of the Black Dog of West Peak, "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”. A proposed Hellhound resides on Hanging Hills, nearby Meriden, Connecticut. Many reports of sightings of this dog come in, giving it a description of a short-haired spaniel type dog with large, sad eyes. Some witnesses claim it makes no noise and never leaves footprints. Up to recent years, deaths are still being attributed to this ghostly dog.
