Hekate is Skylakagetis, “leader of the dogs,” whose animal familiars are a polecat who was once the witch Gale, transformed as punishment for her lack of chastity; and a black female dog, previously the Trojan Queen Hekabe, who leapt into the sea as Troy fell and was saved by the formidable goddess of witchcraft. She is accompanied by Stygian dogs, and as she travels to supplications at that place where two roads meet and wanders the world on moonless nights with the souls of the dead, her approach is announced by the howling of dogs. The triple-figured maiden goddess has three heads: that of a horse, a dog, and a lion. The Greeks offered black dogs (and lambs) to her in sacrifice, just as they did to noble Artemis, for whom they are also sacred; but Artemis does not have a place in the sky, as Hekate does in the Dog Star.
Jan Fyt - Diana and her Dogs. Tags: diana, artemis,
"Actaeon, son of Aristaeus and Autonoe, a shepherd, saw Diana [Artemis] bathing and desired to ravish her. Angry at this, Diana [Artemis] made horns grow on his head, and he was devoured by his own dogs."
Pet Movers Hermes and Artemis - very important dogs to Kadena - uShip
I have put my maltese on the Artemis senior dog formula for over a year now. I have tried numerous brands and i am only able to stick to single brand as it would be a disaster to go through different bags of dog food. When i tried other brands in the past, either of my dogs would end up with something or the other. As in, one ingredient suits one dog and the other ingredient is not doing a good job for the dog. I was finally able to settle with Artemis. Its comforting to know that this food contains joint support as i would have expected from a senior dog food. Been happy and never looked back.
ARTEMIS - Greek Goddess of Hunting & Wild Animals (Roman Diana)
As Apollo was the god of the sun and the brightdaylight, so Artemis was the goddess of the moon. Sheloved to hunt by moonlight; and when the Greeks madestatues of her, they sometimes represented her with atorch held high in one hand and a bow in the other. Artemis always had a band of maidens with her, who ranbeside her, and took care of her dogs, and carried herarrows. She could run so swiftly that she couldovertake the fleetest deer in the hunt. She and hermaidens would dash through the forests with cries andmerry laugh-  ter, and then when the hunt was over theywould bathe in the pure mountain streams.When Artemis was three, she asked her father, Zeus, to grant her six wishes according to Callimachus. They were: to remain a virgin, to have many names to set her apart from her brother, to be the Light Bringer, to have a bow and arrow and a knee-length tunic so that she could hunt, to have 60 "daughters of Okeanos" to be her choir, and for 20 Amnisides Nymphs as handmaidens to watch her dogs and bow while she rested. Suprisingly, she did not ask for any city to be dedicated to her. And, as she remained a virgin, so did all of her companions.
