dando's dogs
   , dandy-dogs
   In Cornwall, the *Wild Hunt was said to be due to the Devil carrying off a wicked priest named Dando who went hunting on Sundays. Since then, he and his dogs are seen or heard galloping across the moors on stormy nights. An alternative name was 'the Devil's dandy-dogs'; a man who was chased by a pack of them, all breathing fire, had the presence of mind to kneel and pray, at which they fled (Hunt, 1865: 220-3).
