I'm ashamed I forgot about Enpu, the jackal-headed guide of the dead in Egypt

So the Enpu fall under this category of black dog spectres? I hadn't thought of it that way. I usually think of Egyptian mythology as just it's own thing.

I think they're called Barghasts in Gaelic
Great subject. Our group has had an encounter with black dogs. I had not heard that they were guardians of the church yard. This makes sense to me though. The church was across the street when the group seen them. The UK term sounds so much better then devil dogs. Yikes.

The Mediterranian was doing a lively trade with the British Isles for tin, going back maybe 3000 years or so, there would have been a bit of cultural exchange, and knowing sailors, some other exchanges as well, so myth certainly would have been known to both cultures.

I'm curious to some opinions on these unsettling spirits, and experiences if any.
