Trash


Trash
   A sinister Lancashire *black dog (black dogs), once widely feared in the Burnley area as a sure *omen of the death of a member of one's family (N&Q 1s:2 (1850), 51). It was large and shaggy, with 'eyes as big as saucers', and got its name from the noise made by its feet, like 'that of a heavy shoe in a miry road'. It was also called Skriker, from the sound of its howling voice on occasions when it was invisible.
