I know that this seems kind of out there but I swear that it's true. When I was a kid my sisters and my mom and I lived with my grandparents. The house itself always felt safe.
One day our neighbors got a new dog. It was an average sized black dog. But since I was a kid I guess it seemed bigger. My neighbor and I were friends so we played a lot together but his dog never seemed to like me. Every time I would go near the mesh fence the dog would start to growl and show me its teeth. So eventually I stopped going to my neighbor's house. But at night I would hear it barking at stray cats or other wildlife and it would freak me out because it would sound so close.
The dog was frightening to me. I just sensed something dark about it. Then one day after school I had heard from my mom that my neighbor's dog had died that morning. I was sad for my neighbor but a little relieved. The rest of the day went by like normal. But that night things got very strange.
That night after I fell asleep, I had strange dreams about that dog. I'm my dream, the dog was still alive and it had jumped the fence and started to attack just me out of everyone in my house. I remember being so terrified. I woke up freaked out then I heard a noise at the side of my bed and I turned to see what it was and it was my neighbor's dead dog sitting next to my bed. I can still remember those glowing solid yellow eyes staring at me. I started screaming but I couldn't move. It's like my body was paralyzed by the dog's stare or something. After what felt like hours of horror my mom finally rushed in the room to see what was wrong. As soon as my mom got to the bed, the dog growled and backed into the wall leaving only its head and front legs exposed and then it just melted into the ground. My mom asked me if I was ok and I asked her if she saw the dog. She told me that she didn't see it. She assured me that it was only a nightmare. But I knew it wasn't. I was fully awake when I saw the dog next to the bed.
I never saw the dog at that house after that but as the years past I knew that its presence was there at times. I lived in Georgia very briefly one time and while I was there I went to a psychic. I didn't actually tell her about the dog but she told me that my intuition is strong which I agree with. Sometimes I just know certain things. Like who is going to call or come ring the door bell or more recently. I have noticed that when I let my mind wonder at work, out of nowhere I will start seeing certain TV programs in my mind and sure enough when I get home and turn on the TV the same program is on.
I'm not saying that I'm psychic. I just think that the dog is somehow tied to my intuition. I have seen the dog recently. I live in Austin Texas now and almost a week ago I was talking on my phone while walking home around 3 in the morning then I looked to the house at the end of the street and I saw its shadow against the white door of the house. I could clearly make out the shape of the dog sitting facing forward and very briefly I saw those same glowing eyes. I kept my conversation going to keep myself from freaking out. But as soon as I got home I went inside and locked the door. The very next day my mom called me and told me that my great aunt was going to pass very soon. I didn't know what to think? Is the Black dog a harbinger of death? Am I really gifted or am I just nuts and like to jump at shadows?
Please help me out on this.
