So to preface, I’m really superstitious and I love getting creeped out by stories of the haunted and everyhing, but NOTHING like this has ever happened to me before. I like hearing stories, watching scary movies and going to haunted houses, but I’d never really experienced too much paranormal stuff… until last night.
I am convinced my dog saw something.
My dog has been with me for 9 years. I raised him from a puppy and in all that time, I have never ONCE heard him growl. He’s never growled at anyone or anything.
So yesterday I was at the kitchen table, addressing my RSVP envelopes and Severus was at my side. My fiance was in the bedroom reading a book for grad school. Our apartment is a tiny one bedroom abode, so the bedroom is right next to the area with the table and we were maybe 10 feet away from each other. We had something on Pandora playing in the background. So basically, it was a super boring night.
Out of nowhere, Severus starts making weird noises. I look down at him and he’s staring straight ahead, crouching low to the ground, and GROWLING. I was shocked. I called his name a few times and he never acknowledged that he heard me. He just kept growling and staring straight ahead.
My fiance asked what was going on. I could see my fiance from where I was sitting at the table and told him that Severus was growling at something in the bedroom. I asked him if there was anything there. He said no, nothing. The fan wasn’t on, the windows weren’t open. Nothing was there.
Severus kept growling. He was was slowly rising and walking forward, staring directly ahead. Suddenly, he looked directly to his left. His eyes were locked on something and he was following it up to the ceiling, then across the room, then back across the room, and up to the ceiling again.
We are both calling his name at this point and he’s still growling. He started moving towards the bedroom slowly, his growl getting deeper. I had this horrible dread in my stomach and I was too afraid to move from my chair.
And just as suddenly as it started, it stopped. His eyes lost focus on whatever it was and he turned around to look at me, his tail between his legs. He then moved back by my chair to lay down.
I didn’t sleep at all last night.
Has anything like that every happened to you or your animals? Do you really think they can sense things that we can’t?
