"My boyfriend, and our 18mth yr. old girl. and I moved into a new place. I got home late from work and while lying in bed trying to fall asleep, I heard a noise and looked out into the hallway and saw a dog! I thought somehow a dog got into our place, but after searching the house, this is not possible. It was a small white dog and I watched it for about maybe ten-fifteen seconds and then it walked into my daughter's playroom.

My boyfriend believed I saw something but figured there was some explanation and even I myself deep down find it hard to grasp that I actually saw a ghost. I who have always believed firmly in ghosts but I guess I never imagined the possibility of a dog as a ghost.

For the next two nights we slept with the lights on. Last night, (with the lights out) our little girl woke up crying for some juice. After she fell asleep, I was lying there and heard a noise again. I instantly woke Allan and a dog walked right past our bedroom door. We both saw it and we both saw the exact same thing. Allan freaked out totally.

I am relieved that he has seen it also. He has never believed in ghosts and was very skeptical but now has absolutely no doubt in his mind. Like I said the dog was small and white. The first night I saw it, I saw only the hind quarters and it was just kind of sniffing around and then went into the other room, with no way out I might add, and it wasn't in there when we searched. When we both saw it, it was a side view and came out of my daughter's play room.

There is no question that it is a ghost. Even the look of it. It makes a noise to alert it's presence but as it walks it makes no sound. The colour is not really see-through but not solid either. A strange translucence about it, like an aura.

My daughter has had unexplained cries out of the blue and then runs to me terrified. Once I was with her and she appeared to be looking at something and jumped into my arms in a panic. This was before we saw the dog but even then I said to my boyfriend it's like she's seen a ghost. She is afraid of dogs, so it would make sense that if she had seen it, she would be scared even not understanding it's a ghost.

I have a very wise and spiritual friend that I called and she believes that this spirit, whether it was actually a dog or a spirit taking on the form of an animal, is trying to get where it is suppose to be and that it senses intuitively that I can help it get there. She says it's important that I get over my fear so as not to scare it off. She offered suggestions as to what I could do. I still feel afraid though, even though I sense it is a friendly spirit. I will see what happens tonight. It seems silly but we are only here for four months and I feel responsible for this ghost and want to help it somehow, because I do feel it is showing itself to us for a reason, and we need to help it on its way.

We live in a two story house and I questioned the people below us (without telling them what I saw), about who lived here before us. Before us there were two young guys that lived here, but before them a lady lived here for four years and owned a small white dog that she had to put down."
