Black Poodle

From "The Dictionary of Omens & Superstitions"

Poodle

" For some years there was an extraordinary superstiion heard in parts of Germany that a black was to be seen on the graves of priests and clergymen who had somehow failed in their calling or actually broken their vows. Why the animal should have been a poodle, or what its presence resulted in, was never explained."

Thought some of you might be interested :p
