A strange occurrence happened tonight, it is about 12:30 am, I am sitting at my computer, all the lights are off, the only light is coming from my computer screen. My little dog is growling at something outside and she will not stop, so I decided to get up and see what the problem is. As I get up, I have a flashlight in my hand, I am getting up and going around my chair, the flashlight is pointing at the ground, I see my dog running past me and going under the chair. I continue walking to the front door, just a few steps away, and I see my dog laying in the middle of my bed. I walk back to the chair and shine the flashlight under the chair, there is nothing there. There is no way that she got past me to get to the bed, there is only one way for her to get on the bed and I was right next to that spot. She is a long haired chihuahua, black with white spots, I SAW her going past me and going under the chair, I even altered my step so that I wouldn't step on her.
I have seen this phantom dog before, but not here, I saw this dog where we used to live, I would see what I thought was my dog walking down the hall, then immediately see the real dog on the other side of the room laying on the couch asleep. On a couple of occasions I had seen them at the same time, when my dog was laying on the couch asleep, I would see the phantom dog walking in front of the couch. This phantom dog looks just like my dog, same shape, same size, same coloring.
I'm not sure what to think about this, it doesn't scare me or bother me, I just hope it doesn't start happening to my hubby, he doesn't understand. I don't know how to help him understand, he considers all of this in the realm of the demonic, to me it's just something that has happened to me all of my life, from childhood.
I suppose I will start seeing this dog around here now, maybe if hubby sees this phantom animal he will think he is seeing our dog.
