Friday the 13th has always been associated with superstition. Tales about strange animals, aliens and spirits are told on this day as a reminder that man cannot see everything with the natural eye. How do dogs come into play? Outside of cats, whispers about the ominous behavior of canines are the top pick for animal lovers. Below are a few you may or may not be familiar with courtesy of TheDogHause.com.
1- Dogs can foresee evil.
2- If a dog eats grass, it’s going to rain.
3- Newborns licked by dogs are quick healers.
4- Howling dogs are a sign of bad luck or illness.
5- A strange dog coming into your house is an omen of a new, pending friendship.
6- Sick people can transfer their illnesses to dogs by either lying next to them and sleeping or feeding the dog hairs from their head in-between bread and butter.
Thinking about your pet in a new way? These superstitions about dogs have roots in paganism, Greek Mythology and modern day folklore. None of them are necessarily scientific (or true), but they do give canine’s unearthly powers that might explain why man wants him around. So, the next time a stray wanders in your garage, don’t get upset. You’re about to meet someone new who is going to be an addition to your life.
