I’ve wondered this for a while, now. There are numerous accounts from those who claim that it is the case. I have always thought that perhaps it were true, but never having experienced anything in that realm left me simply wondering.
Until recently, that is… at least from my point of view. My husband, of course, simply blows it off as an active imagination. He could be correct.
We have a big old dog that seems to need to go out for the bathroom break at increasingly more frequent intervals. His mode of letting us know is to sit up, stare at us intently and then bark loudly. Pretty normal dog behavior.
A few days ago I was working on a project at the computer. My husband was on the couch watching TV. The dog got up, walked to the side of the couch and sat down. His side was to me and he was hidden from view from my husband.
Suddenly he appeared to be looking down the hallway and began to wag his tail and wiggle ever so gently as though he were looking at someone. Suddenly he barked as though he were greeting some unseen being.
I , of course jumped and may have let out a little yelp of surprise. He was distracted and lost interest in whatever he was looking at.
I don’t know if he was looking at someone. I do know the hair on the back of my neck and on my arms all stood on end.
Could he have simply wanted to go out? Sure. But I’ve never observed him simply barking to go out without first engaging in the obligatory stare. It was eery to say the least.
