The big White Dog.
This strange animal is also seen at Chalk Hill. This white dog is as big as a calf but it has red eyes. One night my grandfather was coming home from the chapel and when he came to Chalk-Hill this big dog caught a hold on him and would not let him go. Until at last a light of a motor-car came and the big dog disappeared. When my grandfather came home he went to bed and after a few months he died.
