Summary - Omens and dreams.

Crows were always a bad omen. It was once believed that witches could take the form of crows. Seeing a dog in a dream meant a good friend, or a MacDonald. Similarly, horses were linked to MacLeods, sheep to MacKinnons, cows to MacNeils, bulls to powerful men, and rats and cats to enemies. Further information is given about the meaning of dreams.
