Translators note:
The Shaykh’s answer (rahimahullah) is per the hadeeth of the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam):

Abu Dharr reported: The Messenger of ‘Allaah (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said: When any one of you stands for prayer and there is a thing before him equal to the back of the saddle that covers him and in case there is not before him (a thing) equal to the back of the saddle, his prayer would be cut off by (passing of an) ass, woman, and black Dog. I said: O Abu Dharr, what feature is there in a black dog which distinguishes it from the red dog and the yellow dog? He said: O, son of my brother, I asked the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) as you are asking me, and he said: The black dog is a devil.
