This tale isn't so much about me but my children, actually. At the time this occurred, they were 7, 5, and 4 respectively, all girls, and utterly determined to share the same bedroom, no matter how much space we actually enjoyed. The girls are close, love each other a lot, and are never far apart from each other, which is nice, since they're all Army brats, with my husband deployed quite often.
So one night, the girls are all sleeping soundly in their bedroom, my husband and I are snoring in our own room down the hall, when all of a sudden the children begin screaming madly and shrilly, running down the hall demanding we save them from the "big white dog" they'd seen in their room. My husband ran down to their room but couldn't see anything out of the ordinary. We both questioned the children, and they all swore they'd seen the same thing -- a white dog, huge, with shining red eyes, that stood in the corner of their room watching them. They were absolutely terrified.
My husband is a sensitive, while I'm not, which isn't to say either one of us disbelieves in strange, unexplained things. Since my husband leans towards a belief in a shamanistic faith, we both thought the thing could've been some sort of spirit animal.
We remain worried and anxious it could've been a manifestation of something bad or evil. I was wondering if anyone had similar experiences or maybe some thoughts they'd be willing to share. It's been some time since the event occurred and no other incidents have marred our experience. But I still wonder after it, all the same.
