The Moddey Dhoo is a ghost dog that haunts Peel castle on the Isle of Man. I decided to do this drawing in pen and ink for a change. The subject was suggested by my Manx friend Peter Tucker

In the Isle of Man it is styled Mauthe Dhoog, or Moddey Dhoo (black dog in Manx). It is said to haunt the environs of Peel Castle. People believe that anyone who sees the dog will die soon after the encounter with the dog. It is mentioned by Sir Walter Scott in The Lay of the Last Minstrel:

“For he was speechless, ghastly, wan
Like him of whom the Story ran
Who spoke the spectre hound in Man.”
