Hi Everyone
When I lived with my parents we had a Jack Russel Terrier who started to behave in a strange manor.  He would bark at things that we could not see,  follow things around the room and in one instance he got so frightened he tried to escape from an upstairs window. The neighbours dog would not follow its owner up the driveway.  At the time we had no idea that it was due to paranormal activiy until we started to experience it ourselves but thats another story.  Does anyone know why they can sense more than we can?

I have the same opinion as you.  I believe that some animals and children are able to see what we can not.  Maybe one reason why your jack russel may be acting that way is because dogs have ten times more the senses we have.  Maybe they can sense energy that our minds can not pick up.  My shih tzu does  unusal things too.  I recall one time when he sat at one end of our hallway for like 45 minutes and just stared at nothing.  Sometimes he would sit and look up at the sofa as if someone was talking to him, he just wagged his tail and kept looking up at the sofa at absolutely nothing.  Gave me the hibby-jibby's.  Maybay its just dog nature, but I doubt it. :-/

I believe 'spirits' have an energy that is felt through vibrations, and animals being more sensitive than humans, can feel these vibrations.
Just a thought.

I think your all right in that animals are much more prone to seeing spirits or energy than we are. I have a small pomeranian and he too does many strange things. He barks at nothing, is sometimes frightened of nothing in the room and stares at stuff I can't see. I've had many friends with cats, and I myself think they are the most prone to seeing the unnatural. If anyone has ever owned a cat I'm sure you'd agree that they stare at almost everything...but really nothing...and for hours.
I'm sure I've read somewhere a couple years ago that there senses where a little better than ours besides the obvious (dog ears), but there must be something more scientific to it.

I'm here today because of the past, i respect my self and all i have become and there for i do not regret the road i've walked.

Another 2 things animals, specifically dogs, are "aware" of:

1.) Earthquakes. We have a purebred mutt of dubious origins (some sort of white terrier, with a face that is probably the result of too many loose morals amongst the K9 kind), who seems to tuck tail and dig in the yard only before an earthquake.

2.) Death, which is more related to this topic. I worked for a mortuary removal company (transporting deceased persons) as a driver, and would go into peoples homes. This happened to me one night.

About 12:30 or so I was paged on my NexTel for a residential call in Long Beach, CA where a 45 year old man (Ill with hold his name for his familys sake) has passed away. It was a sudden death, a heart attack, and he had two beautiful dogs, a black lab and a golder retriever. He had been a truck driver, and had been home for about a week on a semi-vacation. His wife said the dogs had been "snubbing him" the last several days, like they did when he was about to go on a long haul, and then just that evening they wouldnt leave him alone. Did the dogs sense that he was about to pass? I think so. I think that dogs are literally mans best friend, and are prone to see and feel things that we can't. I know my dog has acted wierd at times, one thing he does is panic sometimes when a member of the family is driving, and then only to have the member come home and relate how they were "this close to being killed" in some sort of near collision. He also seems to know when a member of the family is coming home, even if the rest of us have no idea when.

So, to sum it all up, I know dogs are connected on a more "spiritual" level than us measly humans are. But at least we have opposable thumbs.

                                                another reason could be that animals can see a slightly different spectrum to us, perhaps the one that ghosts inhabit, babies can aso see ghosts and things that are not there because they can supposedly see in such a way that lets them hear colours and see sounds.

                                                I feel that both animals and children can see spirits because they have not been influenced not to by society yet i.e. the classic "there is no such thing as ghosts" story that most parents teach thier children.

                                                 I like the theory in wich animals pick up on subtler vibrations than the average human. Possibly it's as simple as the fact that they have fur and can actually use the hairs as subtle antena .

Hi, i have a problem for years i have felt things in my house. If you are in the basement you can hear someone walking. When my daughter was younger she has seen things. Well i have had my brother annoint several times in the past and things would be better. I sence things are back for a month my husband started feeling something walking in the bed. He thought it was our cat. But she would not be in there. Now i am feeling it its like someone walking on the end of the bed where our feet are and then walks between us and stops. I did not feel afraid. Cleo our cat was shut out of the room. This is getting very strange. Can anyone help explain this. The strange thing is my sister had this happen at her house back in the summer. NEED HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                                Well if your not scared Elain try talking to it . Sometimes this kind of spirit is somebody trying to get you just to pay attention to them because they need to tell you something. With your sister encountering a similar thing then it is probably somebody you both know and love who has passed on . Just tell them that they have your attention and ask them what it is they want .

                                                I believe that animals and small children are capable of seeing things that adults can't, maybe its an ability that is lost as we get older and are more sceptical about such things. My cat for instance will gaze into space at things which we can't see. I believe in things such as a sixth sense.

                                                 smile.gif I agree with HD. But then I was not brought up to believe there were no such things as ghosts etc, and I firmly believe that a child should be able to make up their own minds about such things.... biggrin.gif

                                                   Maybe it has something to do with their hearing becuz u know that sometimes that you can pick up a ghost voice with a recording thing. Maybe dogz can hear that becuz of their sensitive hearing and acuteness towardz high-pitched sounds! And their eyesight is supposed to be in black and white. They can probably see the ghost better becuz there is no colour to distract them or anything. Or maybe vibrations! My dog is 85% deaf but he still knows where people are because of vibrations!! Also because they are closer to the ground and have four feet to pick up vibrations!!! Of course, thats just my opinion!!   biggrin.gif  biggrin.gif  biggrin.gif  biggrin.gif  biggrin.gif  biggrin.gif
