The elusive mythological wild black dogs. I've been lucky enough to see one of these, when i was 20 years old 18 years ago. I'd been reading about
them in books and started to believe in them, but most of the stories i read where not too good, attacks on people, cattle and stuff, so i tended to
believe not all of them where a nuisance or violent towards people.
A few weeks later i was on my driving test examination, whilst driving towards my home on a busy road the examiner told me when he slams his
paperwork on the dashboard he wants me to perform an emergency stop, i nodded and said OK, then saw a black dog sitting on the pavement outside my
home. It was a short haired, scruffy old looking Labrador like breed, it looked like a mongrel Labrador cross, with bits of greying in its black coat
so must have been an old dog. It was staring at me and i it, then it suddenly started walking out in front of the car, i did a perfect emergency
stop, said i don't believe it, then continued with my perfect driving test examination. The examiner told me to turn left, i did then 100 yards
later hit the dashboard with his paperwork. i tried to do an emergency stop but messed it up and rolled forward slightly by taking my foot off the
break before the car stopped.
so anyways, i passed the test and got my driving licence, when i inquired about my failed second emergency stop, he said, "yeah but you're first
one was perfect so i used that to determine whether you pass or not, its very rare you would have to do 2 emergency stops so close together so i
disregarded the one i asked of you."
