I wanted to answer a few questions that were submitted to my story. I really am grateful that some of you have given me some ideas on what I might have witnessed because it has bothered me.
To explain a little bit about our bedroom; our room is very lit up due to the neighbors house right outside our windows. We also keep the house some what lit for our two toddlers. We still have plenty of shadows, but for the most part I can usually see everything around me.
The Black Dog woke me. I think I might had rolled over to be closer to my husband and that's when I saw him. It is very hard for me to explain, but I feel things before I see them. I didn't wake because of a noise or smell, in fact when I started screaming my husband had to wake me to get me to stop. This only tells me that I some how saw him in my sleep. This method is very common for me.
Most of my visions come to me in my sleep. It's actually a hassle because I never get a deep sleep because spirits are always waking me. My husband did not see it, and was pretty shaken by it. He wonders why it was face to face with him. Another thing that has me wondering about it is that I have two dogs. One is outside at all times and the other one stays in the house for the most part.
If this is a 'ghost dog', then why haven't my dogs reacted? However, the interesting thing about this night, my dog had slept outside... It makes things a bit on the curious side! I've had many spirits touch me, but this event was the first time I touched a spirit. It has me a bit shaken.
