Scary and mysterious stories tickle your nerves. No wonder so many like them so much. But are all legends pure invention?
From the pages of novels
Once Sir Conan Doyle put a monstrous ghost in the marshes near the Baskerville Hall: a huge dog was hunting for the heirs of the damned family. Often in legends, novels and films, ghost animals accompanied their disembodied hosts. The wild hunting of King Stakh, invented by Vladimir Korotkevich, pranced in the company of a ghostly ghostly pack.
And the famous and frightening Horseman without a head would never be famous without his faithful horse. The cat's ghost has become one of the key figures of the novel by Stephen King "The Cemetery of Pets". The dog from the cartoon "Frankenwinnie" can not be called a ghost in the full sense of the word. But still, even the death under the wheels of the car could not separate the faithful pet with its loving owner.
And if you recall the work of such recognized masters of literary horror as Edgar Poe and Howard Lovecraft, you can tirelessly list the otherworldly beasts of all stripes with which they populated their imperishable works. But are there ghosts invented by genius in the real world?

Everyone knows the touching story of a devoted dog named Khatiko , who nine years after the death of the owner came to the station where he usually met a loved one, and waited for him. Edinburgh has its own symbol of dog fidelity. Dog Bobby 14 years every evening came to the grave of the owner. And even death could not separate our friends.
