Hello everyone on this part of ATS. Its my first post here in this section of ATS. So here goes...
A few years ago, I was staying at my friends place. He went to sleep early (at around 1 am). I was up watching a movie on his computer, with
headphones on. I was all by myself.....the only other "thing" in the room was my friends dog, who just lay there beside me quietly.... in his
Then later, I heard the dog through my head phones. It was like....a single loud *bark*....and a few seconds later, a whimpering sound. I ignored it
at first.... but this continued for what felt like 5 minutes.... each bark sounding more "angry" than the one before....and becoming more frequent.
I'm thinking "shut up, you stupid dog".
I just ignored it.....trying to focus on the movie that was playing.. but over the next minute, I
couldn't help but notice that each bark was sounding more vicious. After a point, the barking stopped...and all that remained was this disturbing low
pitched growling sound... like the one that a rabid or a very angery dog would make. (And no, this dog was NOT rabid)
Then the growl became really annoying and I decided I had enough. I put my headphones down and turned aside to shoo it out of the room. And then I saw
this- the dog was just sitting there.... frozen stiff.... making this constant deep growling sound.... with all its teeth bared.
EXCEPT.... the dog was not growling at me.... it was simply looking out of the the window right next to where I was sitting. I knew there was just an
empty balcony outside the _ I still walked into the balcony to check the place out, expecting to see a burglar or at least a cat. I saw
NOTHING. Beyond the balcony was an empty plot.... just barren land and trees.
After my brief "what the.... " moment, I walked back into the room, only to see the dog shaking and whimpering looking at me... before it bolted out
through the door. I just sat there on a couch, feeling rather uneasy. I started to feel convinced that the dog saw something
. But I didn't try
and analyze what happened.... instead I just played some played some music and tried to get some sleep.
So then.... what was it? Why was the dog barking furiously.... baring its teeth and all...while looking into an empty window? What made it run out of
the room scared after I checked the balcony.
Does this really qualify as an experience of the paranormal? Or do dogs randomly growl and bare their teeth in the middle of the night, for no reason?
(I wouldn't know... I've never owned a dog in my life)
Note that this particular dog was took rather well to me....and never displayed any signs of aggression towards me.
I heard that dogs can see things that we cant....like say, spirits and demons. What do you think, ATS?
