OK, my dog stared at the corner of the wall today, and she started growling with an unusual growl that was inconsistant. Her hair stood up on the back of her neck like I've never seen before. There was nothing there. All I could do was mute the TV and watch..I was scared xxxxxx. So, I watched as she backed up and then went forward and growled and started to get flustered like she wanted it to leave. She then came over to my bed as if she were guardiing me, and kept peeking around the corner, as if to see if it had left. Well, anyway she started pacing back and forth growling and looking up. THERE WAS SOMETHING AGAINST THE WALL THAT MY DOG DID NOT LIKE!!!!!!! I WAS SO SCARED...ALL I COULD SAY WAS "I DONT KNOW WHO YOU ARE BUT PLEASE LEAVE BECAUSE YOU'RE SCARING THE xxxx OUT OF ME!" AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN...IT STOPPED AND SAXON LAYED DOWN. DONT TELL ME GHOSTS DONT EXIST, THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY NO OTHER EXPLANATION. DOGS SEE GHOSTS!!!

Maybe she did see ghosts! If she was growling and protecting you, then she must have seen something! I would also be pertified (Sp) and i would have run out of the house wit my dog, brave you for asking it to leave! :) Maybe there is something that you may not be able to sence, but Saxon might! Myabe the spirit of a dog that died there, a little research could help if you are still worried and he/she keeps coming back!
Hope that helps you,
Happy Christmas to You and Saxon and a Prosperous (Sp) New Year!
I think more likely reasoning is that mice and rats get in the insulation between the walls and in the ceiling :P They can hear them moving around through the walls, when we can't... well sometimes we can't, when it's a rat, they can be pretty noisy, believe me!
So yes, there is another explanation.

Well, this weekend my daughter told me something and I do believe it.
When my husbands mother died, I saw her the nite she died...she came in our house directly behind him and was looking at me....
She looked alot like his brother with the glasses and the hair, so I covered my head up with the comforter (I was awake and laying on the couch and embarrassed as I looked like crap) He came over and kissed me and asked him why his brother came in with him....
He said he didnt.
So I knew who I saw.
So, this weekend Ashley was sleeping in her room with Stitch.....Stitch started barking and wagging her tail.... and Ashley looked where she was barking and saw Buscia (Polish for grandma) in the spot where Stitch was attentively looking and she was smiling at them both and disappeared.
Stitch LOVED Buscia and would run over to her sitting in her recliner whenever we stopped to visit....after she died, she always looked for her in that chair as well....and often quite confused.
I have no doubt they can see them. And I dont mind that she stops in....My daughter isnt scared either, altho she is 8....we love and miss her.
See the mist? my gf in NC's hubby bought her this magnolia tree and he died....the thing never bloomed for 10 yrs and she was talking about digging the the thing up and getting rid of it....One day she was taking pics with her digital camera of her grandson in the tree.....in all the pics, you can see the mist....I believe it was her husband......and I get warm and fuzzy looking at it, as it envelopes her grandson....
My friend is a photography major and said that it is legit....
Furthermore, the darn thing bloomed after the pic was taken!!
She aint cutting it down now.....

I also think dogs can see ghost. My dog everynight at about 2:30 am starts uncontrollable barking at the entrance to my bedroom door. Now at first I was scared but now I'm use to it. He hasn't done it lately so I think our ghost has left! I'm just glad he's there to keep them in check.lol
Also my cam has only picked up bubbles when we make it happen (put your finger over the flash not touching it) and when we do that the bubble things are a brownish red color. but this showed up wile taking pics of some work my brother and a few friends did.
I honestly belive that alot of us stay on earth after we go. I have seen an old lady standing in my room, It scared the crap put of me. I was playing monster with olina when she was 2 (i run and hide in a bed room all the lights in all the bed room are off she comes looking for me when she gets in the room I growl and she runs laughing) well I was behind the door and I turned my head and say someone standing there. the back of the house was dark but this old lady looked a smoky white and screamed and ran then fell over laughing. Usualy that stuff does not scare me but it was like someone sneeking up behind you.
I have had my soda be draged around the desk befor, My radio messed with (you could see the knob turning and It always stoped on a country station). When we were looking for a house the first time I wouldnt buy a house because someone died in it. we walked i I kept telling mike someone died there he didnt belive me finaly i asked the lady showing the house she said yah someone died there a few weeks ago I said told you and wated outside. It was the strangest feeling I ever had a tingle in your spine along with a sence of someone being 37 kinds of mad. This time when we went to buy a house I turned one down for 2 reason. first they had a set of pics one of little boy blue one of miss muffest or maby marry. Little boy blue was in the hall way the girl was in a bed room. we walked in and I said It smells like death. our realtor laughed and asked what death smelled like (it was a diffrent one this time I love him). I said I dont know sniff thats death. we walked around and i saw the pic I laughed and told him about a pic my gram has it was in the same spot in her hall way and then pointed to a bed room and said she also had a girl one hers would be in that room. Walked in and there was the pic. We didnt get it someone was eather dieing in that house or had died. I didnt get the strange feeling like last time but you could smell it and I haveno clue how to get rid of the smell of death. It did have a nice garden though.
I think i have to agree with Minniyar that there ARE other things, besides "ghosts" and that stuff that a dog would bark at...... you can hear stories about cats and kittens and raccoons and what not stuck or just crawling around in the walls of peoples homes ....
so i think there are Other things that would cause a Dog or cat to act that way,
and BTW i Do not believe in Ghosts (Sp?) i believe in evil angels but not in real dead people coming back to scare or warn us.... i think that those "dead people" are the evil angels impersonation (Sp? and is that a word ? ) a dead person. Cause remember how the devil when he tempted Jesus how he looked like a Bright and Good angel ? He and his bad angels are Good at that ( the impersonating thingy
Well I know that Blaze and Smokey are not looking or barking at mice. My home is new and no mice!
Blaze will also back at the door opening or just at the air it seems.
I do have a friend that is a Medium so I know there are ghosts and some things or people do have the ability to see and talk to them. My friend actually works with the police dept to help with missing people.
My cat looks at things that are not there. One day he was staring intently at something. I grabbed my camera a took a picture. Two orbs were in the photo. Here is a picture of the cat actually looking at the orb - THIS IS FREAKY!!! I mean to tell you!!!
My dogs did it a few times, barking and backing up, with tails down....I know there was no real person there nor any animal, and they were very scared too. When my oldest dog died, just a couple of minutes after she passed away at our home, our cat started to miau so much and she was looking at the ceiling all the time and miauing..... then she went down to the basement and stayed there all night, what she never does, she always sleeps in a bed!
Honestly Im a bit shocked that so many people on here belive in that kind of stuff. Most the people around me dont. I will tell them storys and all I get are funny looks and people calling me nuts.
I fermly belive in things like that. I also do card readings and Im good. My brother didnt belive untill I did him one day. My sister in law didnt belive untill I did her cards then her husbands. The first 2 cards were exactly the same the 3rd cards were diffrent. They were in total shock. They both got the parent and child card (a few months later they found out she was preg) and they both got family harmoney, then he got a money card (his brain is always trying to find a way to make more money) and she got the problems resolved card. I even got my husabdn to belive by doing one card reading. It was his first time getting a reading and my first time giving one. Ever sence he has not doughted anything that i have said when it comes to the "strange, creepy, and totaly wierd"
Well I absolutely believe in ghosts. About 15 yrs ago I was working as a nurse in a nursing home. I was working a night shift with one other staff member. We were sitting in a dining area at the end of a hallway just talking about things in general. Both of us heard a noise coming from the end of the hallway. We looked down the hallway and saw a lady coming very slowly up the hallway with (oddly enough) one of those old frame type walkers. The rubber on the feet of the walker was making that distinctive rubber on bare floor sound. Since it was an old building, the rooms didn't have bathroom in them, the odd few that were able to get up to go during the night had to walk about halfway up the hallway to the shared bathroom. We continued talking assuming this lady was just heading to the washroom. About 5 minutes later we looked down the hallway and this lady was STILL slowly coming up the hallway. She would take two step..scrape that walker across the floor then pause. We continued talking still not thinking anything odd. After another few minutes we noticed she had indeed gone past where the washroom was, so we debated who was going to go down to see if she needed anything (It's nightshift...we hate getting up lol) Finally I agreed to go down to see if she needed anything. Now there is no rooms at all on the right hand side of the hallway...just cement block wall. As I am walking down to her it dawns on me I have no idea who this lady is? She was very tall and wearing a long nightgown. She had very long hair that was loose down her back. She kept her head down the entire time so I never saw her face. As soon as I got to within 6 feet of her she turned her body towards the concrete wall and walked....yes walked THROUGH the wall. I stood there for a few seconds doing the "what the #$#%^ ??" I turned to the other girl I was working with and she's now standing up staring at me with I'm sure the same look on her face that I had on mine. She met me in the hallway and we both confirmed that there was someone in the hallway and what we saw. We both saw the same thing. Tall, white long hair woman, long nightgown and yep using a frame walker! We did a room to room check trying to figure out who it could have been. Even though I was close enough to touch her when she went through the wall and I knew there was no place else she could have gone. Ever resident was fast asleep in bed and none of the mobile residents had one of those frame walkers anyways. Honestly if I had not have been working with someone else that night I would not have believed what I saw. She was not "misty" or "translucent"...she was just like a real person. Strange......
Since my father passed away (late spring of this year) I really believe he has been here to "visit".
On several occasions Maggie (beagle) would start sniffing the air and running in circles while we were outside. She would then start barking with tail wagging and come running to me then to the door. It was like she wanted me to let him into the backyard or something. She really loved her grandpa! Luckily she did get to see him the night before he died.
There have been times when she would also start growling and stand rather close to me- like she was protecting me. Right before she would start growling I would get an overwhelming feeling that someone was watching us. It rather freaked me out!
