"In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming..." - English translation of Aklo verse

"It was a paw, fully two feet and a half across, and equipped with formidable talons. After it came another paw, and after that a great black-furred arm to which both of the paws were attached by short forearms. Then two pink eyes shone, and the head of the awakened gug sentry, large as a barrel, wabbled into view. The eyes jutted two inches from each side, shaded by bony protuberances overgrown with coarse hairs. But the head was chiefly terrible because of the mouth. That mouth had great yellow fangs and ran from the top to the bottom of the head, opening vertically instead of horizontally."
Gugs are 16 feet tall and weigh nearly 2,000 pounds.
-H.P. Lovecraft, The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath

Gugs are a species of creatures featured in The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath. They are large, black-furred beasts with vertically-opening fanged jaws. Their two eyes protrude from either side of their head, and their limbs terminate in two paws each. Gugs are worshippers of the Great Ones, the gods of Earth who reside in Kadath.
