Gorgo is a dog belonging to Pope Spatulus III , described as being "much too large" by Father Grabney (Saint Fidgeta and Other Parodies, 52).


In Greek mythology, a Gorgon is a female creature whose name derives from the ancient Greek word gorgós ("dreadful")[1]. Perhaps this is what Bellairs was aiming at.
