My Dogs Doppelganger


This happened to me a week ago, I was in my kitchen at about 9pm making myself a sandwich when I glanced up to look at the doorway which was to my right I saw what I thought was my dog I instantly looked back at the sandwich and glanced back up again to say to 'cookie' (my dog) "smell food can you?" I got as far as "smell..." and then my heart started to race he wasn't there I didn't here his claws click across the floor (tile in kitchen and hall and laminate in living room).

I, instantly not believing what I saw raced through to the living room where 'cookie' was fast asleep on the chair twitching and dreaming. I'd like to add at this point although my explanation made it seem like I looked away for a long time it was literally looked at the doppelganger 1 second passed then my sandwich then another second and looked up again.

It really confused me I looked for a possible explanation but there is no way my dog would have been fast enough to run back and look like he was asleep on the chair in the living room he's 11years and a little slower in his old age with arthritis. I then tried to tell myself it was a trick of the light but thinking about it the image of him standing the kitchen doorway was so clear I really thought it was him. I can't think of any other explanation I am very skeptical when it comes to the paranormal I have only had 1 other experience of the paranormal which I explained in a story I posted a while ago.

When I allowed myself to think that it must have been his doppelganger I felt a feeling of dred and panic don't know why as I don't fully understand what they represent and don't know much about them at all really only what I've read on here. The reason I am so skeptical of the paranormal is that I've not had much experience of it and I once went to a spiritualist circle thing with my friend the person who ran the group claimed to be a psychic/medium he looked at my aura and told me it was blue/green I forgotten what it means and that I have reoccurring pain in my foot I do not however and told him this but he was adamant I did he claimed that my grandfather was with me and his name was Charlie and he was a short man and made me a dolls house when I was little my grandfathers name is Joseph the other is Christopher and both were tall-average height and neither made me a dolls house.

He also instructed us through meditation rituals which I found very calming on awaking he would ask you what you experienced and tell you what your experiences mean spiritually. I never really experienced anything other than the calm and quiet also he made us join hands with a person and tell them the color they were thinking of I said green and the lady said it was correct but I felt she was just saying that to make me feel I had experienced clairvoyance?

Sorry for going off on a tangent has anyone experienced a doppelganger for themselves what do they represent? I have heard they bring bad news but I hope not also has anyone else experienced spiritualist circle things or mediums I do although believe genuine mediums exist.

taz 890- I have had one other pet dog it was a lab/collie cross black and white but the image I saw was exactally like my white terrier cross I have atm so I am sure it was my current dog interesting theory cookie may have indeed been astral projecting thanks for the comment

Textbud13- cookie quite a small dog so his life expectancy should be 15-16 hopefully sorry to hear you lost your dog thanks for the comment

Guffa95- thanks for your comment he is currently having blood tests at the vets I work at as they think he has either cushings disease or liver disease so I assume its something to do with that

Moongrim- thanks for your comment has eased my fears

ok firstly have you had any other pet dogs?
Could be an old pet just passing through to let you know it was ok.
Or it could even have been your own dog having an out of body experience! You said he was asleep at the time, he could have heard you in the kitchen while asleep and came to see what you were doing, who knows what dogs dream about but I know this the sure do move and growl alot

on this website (I think it was might of been another one) I saw the doppelganger page (I have not fully lernt this website so I can't tell you how but it sad that a theroy of doppelganger is that if you or anyone else sees your doppelganger it means that your going to die or death can't remember wich one. It said that one is evil and one is good (if Cookie is good this is evil) according to the website everyone has one and 11 is old for a dog I lost my dog last year to old age it was either 12, 13, or 14 if your dog is black it could of been a showdow

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but doppelganagers such as this are often symbols of bad luck, I would recommend keeping an eye on him and taking him to the vet as soon as you notice anything the matter with him

Actually, the only doppelganger you need to worry about seeing- is your own.
