Cowboy Tim told me last night over dinner that Angel was his fairy dog. (And he has had several.) He tells me that fairies live in nearby Clocaenog Forest, and will send their fairy dogs out to live with people. The spotted fairy dogs will show up at a person’s door to be adopted.
At this point I asked, “but aren’t fairies small?”
Tim just looked at me as if I was some naive outlander and said, “fairies can be any size they wish.”
The dogs are to be well cared for and if they should be mistreated misfortune will fall on the home.
