When I was 21 (I am now 28). I had gone from the south island, to the north island of New Zealand to visit my father and my brother who lived in the city Auckland. My brother was living with some flatmates about half an hours drive from my fathers house, where I spent my days, and slept at Dads at night.
One night when I had gone to sleep as usual, at about 4-5am I awoke to the sound of a dog snarling. I turned to the far wall next to me and saw two eyes like burning embers walk through the wall and with them a "BIG" heavily gold armoured dog. The gold armor looked like the skin of a rhino, but it was gold. The snarling was neverending and sounded terrifying. By now I was wide awake, aware and wondering what on earth I was seeing. The demon dogs eyes burned into mine as it made heavy strides toward me. Its mouth was lined with sharp teeth and drool was pouring out of its mouth.
I tried to call for my father but only whimpers would come out of my mouth. The demon approached my bed and mounted the side with his two front legs. Under the weight of this beast I rolled toward him as the bed leaned under his heavy frame. I tried to push him away but as soon as I got my hand close to him a bolt of fear struck through my body and I was paralysed with fear. I continued to try to call for help but it was useless. The demon lowered its jaws to my ear and growled at me for close to 30 seconds and then faded away. I lay there on my back, terrified, until the sunrise.
Everybody I told said it was a dream or my imagination. But I say it wasn't, it was real. I don't care what people think because I know what I've seen before and after this event. I have had many other experiences, but this one was by far the most fear I have ever felt. I no longer give in to fear so these things happen much less.
