Black Dog

Rereading one of our mythological animals books, Ansel was predictably enthusiastic about the idea of the "Black Dog."  This oversize canine's origins are primarily in European folklore and it is usually described as an emissary of the devil, a hell hound, or at least, a portent of death

Large glowing red eyes and a relationship with Satan are characteristics guaranteed to entrance my younger son.  If I explained the association with depression, that would probably charm him all the more.
I tried to draw a dog that was not too scary...or too depressing.
