The Ghost I Still Can Not See


As I told y'all in my past story I seem to have a ghost type thing that has followed me since my childhood. My friends and family have seen what they describe as a older man, dark suit, grey hair walking a large dog. From what I am told neither the man or dog are especially scary, unnerving maybe.

I have seen picture from childhood with my face distorted. In a couple or so I can see a man in the distant back ground that fits his description. I know sounds hoakie, but he reminds of the preacher from Poltergeist 2.

Ok so on with new business. About 6 months ago my son woke me up saying the dog won't stop barking. I told him to go back to bed. I got up to use the bathroom. As I walk to my bathroom you can't help but look out across a park my townhouse sits next to. At the edge of the park is the biggest, blackest dog I have ever laid eyes on. Ok I know so it's a dog, but this dog scared the daylights out of me.

So I stand frozen, this dog staring at me through my window when suddenly he starts barking like crazy, loud deep barks. My sons yells up that he smells smoke. This breaks my fixation on fido. We grab a few articles of clothes and get out front. The townhouse next to mine is really starting to burn. The fire department does a great job of saving our home.

I did some asking around and besides my son and I, not one person heard our phantom dog which does not seem reasonable. It was suggested that the man and his dog were here to help me. I know one ghost dog I would like to hug. So if it was the dark man's dog, why didn't he show himself?

lawluck - what I'm going to say doesn't mean I don't believe your experience. I'm just offering some personal experience.

I have a dog. He seems to think it is job to bark at night. At everything. Sometimes he freaking barks all night long, as well as the dogs he's talking to. We live on a dead end, at the end of my parents' property. Many times I've asked my parents if he has kept them up all night with his barking. Rarely do they hear him. There is nothing that prevents them from hearing him except selective hearing LOL. Our homes are only about 100' apart and they don't live in a soundproof home 😆

Anyway, just a little different perspective on why the neighbors didn't hear it.

Lawluck, if he had showed himself, outside the window or in the house, do you think you'd be frightened?
Think about it from his perspective. Maybe he was scared you would think he was responsible for what happened. Just another way to look at it. 😊
Interesting encounter, thanks for sharing!
