So far I've posted 2 stories about people who have seen or heard the ghosts of their cats. And these stories have gotten lots of great comments on my website. So now I'm happy to announce our first story about the ghost of a dog.
Annie and Jane from Illinois sent me this tale (tail?...ouch! Bad Pun Alert!) about Annie and her ghostly dog.
Okay... My school just got out two days ago. And yesterday was the first day of summer break! But I was not too excited about it because I had to go to my dad's work. I got home around 6:00 and my mom told me to take out my dog, Squiggle.
My mom was outside gardening. My brother, Austin, was outside riding his bike. My dad was golfing with some of his friends. After the walk I went inside to let Squiggle in. I opened the garage door and walked into the laundry room. The laundry room door was closed. I cracked open the laundry room door and I heard someone say "Come here, Charcoal!" Then I heard jingling. It sounded like Charcoal's collar. Charcoal was my other dog. But the thing is Charcoal died 2 years ago!
I opened the laundry room door and said "Mom? You there?" No answer. I looked out the window and my mom was outside. She had not moved from where she was gardening. I looked over at where we always kept Charcoal's collar--on the mantel over the fireplace. It was not there! I looked around and I saw it on the floor next to a fresh muddy paw print.
I grabbed Squiggle and ran outside. I told my mom everything. She was skeptical so I brought her in to show her. But the collar was back in its place and the paw print was gone!
I'm so scared... well... at least my house is being haunted by someone I love!
Jane and Annie
WOW! (or should I say bow-WOW! Sorry, Bad Pun Alert again) Thanks, Jane and Annie, for sharing that story.
