    Gelert by Charles Burton Barber (1845–1894)
    The King noticed that Gelert had blood around his mouth but went straight to his infant son's room and found his baby missing, the cradle overturned, and more blood. Imagining that Gelert had killed his baby, Llywelyn drew his sword and killed the dog, whose dying yelp was answered by a baby's cry. Llyelyn lifted the cradle and found his heir under the cradle, along with a dead wolf which had tried to lift and run off with the infant, but had been stopped and killed by Gelert. Overcome with remorse, Llywelyn buried the dog with great ceremony, but never smiled again, plagued by the memory of the Gelert's dying cries. Although experts doubt the legend and the authenticity of Gelert's Grave, Beddgelert people honor and maintain it to this day, and popular Welsh belief in the legend still serves as a warning in that culture against acting rashly in anger when things are not as they seem.[54]

  • A Tale of Mari and Three Puppies is based on a true story in the 2004 Chūetsu earthquake.Mari gave birth to three puppies. That spring, animals behaved strangely, foreshadowing something major to come.
