Dogs are a symbol of guidance, protection, loyalty, faithfulness, devotion, trust. Dogs are often seen as the messengers between this world and the next one. The Ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and Celtic all saw dogs as the guardians of the underworld. This is why dogs are often associated with death and often are guides on astral plane journeys. Anubis is the classic example of this easing the transition from your life to the afterlife. Anubis is a jackal headed God and therefore has the sensory perception of a dog. This also means that the next life contains for us security and protection. Dog are also sacred to Hecate, a Greek-Roman overseer of all, but most importantly those misunderstood.
