Imaginative picture of huge, green dog the size of a cow goes here but I couldn’t find one with a commons license
The Cu Sith (pronounced coo shee) is an enormous hound in Celtic mythology which roams the Scottish Highlands. It is the size of a cow, has shaggy, dark green fur and a long braided tail.
Its name means “faerie dog” which may explain its unusual color – the green associated with faeries. Most supernatural dogs are black, or white with red ears, in Celtic myth.
The dog hunts silently but occasionally emits three barks, so loudly it can be heard by ships at sea. The ferocious barks serve as a warning to farmers to lock up their women, lest the beast steal them away to a faerie mound to nurse the Sídhe children.
Don’t forget Sept 10th is the What’s Your Chocolate? blog fest.
