Back when I was 7, I had two dogs. One of them died when I was 8 and the other when I was 9. Since then, we bought three new ones. Things have really gotten weird since then.
It all started on 4/10/2005 (My mom kept track of the date in case something weird would happen on this day). It was right before my 10th birthday. We had two dogs at the time. My dogs are usually outside. I happened to glance out the window to see my husky play with a dog that looked like the one that died when I was 7. I blinked and it was gone.
This next one happened on 6/17/05 (again, my mom kept track of the date) right before we left on vacation to Delaware. We packed up and were ready to go, but before we went in the car I saw the dog that died when I was nine in one of my dogs' cages.
Creepy came down to it on 6/12/07 (My mom tracked the date; it was similar to the last one). Everyone was in bed and I heard footsteps. My brother (who was 6) came into my room and said "Did you hear that?" I nodded. Just then all 3 dogs started howling. That basically woke everyone up so we all went downstairs and they were howling with a dog that looked like the one that died in 2005. We all looked at each other, and we all saw the same thing. The dog seemed very real. Eventually, it noticed us and vanished. We were all breath taken.
There are countless other sightings now, but I believe these spirits are good because of one night in particular.
I was sleeping, and having an out-of-body experience (probably just a dream.) Something told me that "they are watching over me"..., and when I woke up, I saw both dead dogs at the foot of my bed. I got up and tried to pet one and they both disappeared.
I will be happy to read and respond to any comments. The last one wasn't sleep paralysis, because I could move, by the way. (Just too clear things up)
