I know I shouldn't...but I really wish I had a maid!

looking at the dog closely you can clearly see his head is turned to look at the person taking the photo. His face is dark but he looks like a sheltie or something similar. Does not look ghostly to me at all.

it is just a photo of three women having tea and a dog. My dad used to take photos some turning out like that. He had one of those black box cameras that belonged to grand dad. It took similar pictures and often not very clear. Grandpa was born in 1895 and those were the cameras they used. I still have the camera but have no clue how to focus it as the only movable part is the shutter button and the winder for the film (was wound by hand). So those old cameras and films are a bit tricky to fake since most people did not develop their own film, and a lot did not even have electricity or runnin...

This is a very old photo and been on display for many decades. If it is faked it is not using modern methods.

That is actually a very good photo or one of the best fakes I've ever seen

I suppose it's a little too late to ask anyone if that was a real dog or not...

Obviously fake.... But, the old yeller comments are funny )
Comment icon #48 Posted by sarhii on 10 August, 2009, 3:24
I think I saw this on the History channel and they proved it was fake.

Oh God.. Old Yeller is the absolute saddest thing I have seen in mylife... Why did they shoot him!!! (...)

Comment icon #45 Posted by girlieghost on 13 July, 2008, 1:27
this is the first pic i've seen with a ghostly animal
Comment icon #44 Posted by arden on 17 November, 2007, 5:43
I don't know, it seems too convenient that there was a lot of room on the left hand side, just enough for a ghost dog to appear in the photo.

There is a famous ghost dog in Sussex UK. It ran infront of my husbands bike when he was a boy. Then he was told It was the dog of a man that was murdered there.
Comment icon #42 Posted by artemisthehunter on 21 June, 2006, 23:19
Yes, obviously the dog didn't stay put for the shot. I have had some interesting experiences with animals and what would seem to be their spirits, but that is not a ghost in this picture.
Comment icon #41 Posted by foxgirl on 15 April, 2006, 0:02
Animals do have souls! In my really old house, we used to hear dogs barking and hear things moving in the attic. A whole lot of stuff happened in that house. My mom said it was built in the early 1900's, but i found a book in the attic that was published in 1885!
Comment icon #40 Posted by genevieve on 4 January, 2006, 0:38
I was too thinking that this was caused by the doggy moving during exposure. But it IS a golden retriever. Not a wolf or something like someone said. p.s. how could only humans have souls? PUHLEAZE, that's just stupid.

I'm the same person as VooDooDaddy, ParisCat. To answer your question, I have a copy of the book, "Real Ghosts, Restless Spirits and Haunted Places." I have a lot of other literature on ghosts. I've been reading about them since I was seven years old, and I know a lot about them. I even helped an online friend get rid of a ghost that was haunting her apartment.
Comment icon #38 Posted by pariscat1982 on 9 December, 2005, 12:17
VooDooDaddy, where do you get all your info from?
Comment icon #37 Posted by voodoodaddy on 3 December, 2005, 10:05
The photograph is real. It was taken in 1916 by Arthur Springer, a retired inspector for Scotland Yard. The image of the dog was not present in the frame when he took the picture. The copy of this photograph is out of "Real Ghosts, Restless Spirits and Haunted Places," by Brad Steiger. It is a giant book, more than 600 pages and is loaded with fantastic spirit photography.
Comment icon #36 Posted by klausable on 1 December, 2005, 21:04
maybe the dog is shaking?
Comment icon #35 Posted by caitlhyn on 22 November, 2005, 9:01
I think this is just a photo of a dog and ladies at tea. I disagree with those who say animals don't have souls, there are plenty of stories about ghost animals and though I'm sure there are rational explainations for many, they can't all be explained.
Comment icon #34 Posted by rickenbacker on 20 November, 2005, 16:46
No it's not fake, it was explained in the third comment. It's a real dog that moved (hard to get a dog to pose, unlike people).
Comment icon #33 Posted by jimmytheclown on 27 October, 2005, 17:49
it looks like its benn airbrushed or something?
Comment icon #32 Posted by jumzone on 5 October, 2005, 7:16
As for this pic being fake becouse of the dog moving and bluring the picture, can I just draw everyone's attention to it's legs which seem to be stationary, in other words this animal was standing still when this photo was taken.
Comment icon #31 Posted by eternal light on 25 September, 2005, 7:41
I believe the dog moved also. It's just my opinion, I could be wrong. Just because you have always believed that only humans have souls, does'nt necessarily make it fact Recker.
Comment icon #30 Posted by hassell4 on 17 September, 2005, 3:41
I saw this in the Ripleys believe it or not special edition 2005 book.
Comment icon #29 Posted by hood_man on 9 September, 2005, 18:00
I'm pretty sure on the far right you can see the left side of the dog's face (his nose has been cropped). And there seems to a bit of dog on the left of the dog as well. Which of course means this must be a ghost dog with 3 heads. And anyway, the maid looks more like a ghost. Look at the evil in her eyes!
Comment icon #28 Posted by flaxengrass on 3 August, 2005, 5:08
Camera's back then took a much longer time to expose the film than they do today. ANYTHING moving about during capture is obviously going to appear blurry in the pic.
Comment icon #27 Posted by bleak on 12 July, 2005, 6:12
It seems like a real photo, very odd to see animal ghosts. I believe in it :)
Comment icon #26 Posted by bible boy on 10 July, 2005, 8:30
Yes this is the result of the dog moving during the exposure. He probably only moved his head and was wagging his tail, the rest of his body is clear. You can see that the woman on the right also moved her head and was probably originally looking at the camera. Blurryness is not ghosts, just unsuccessful photography. Just like how spelling errors in writing are not ghosts.
Comment icon #25 Posted by kevdogster on 10 July, 2005, 8:04
I agree with Dwayne G
Comment icon #24 Posted by theghost_and_thedarkness on 30 June, 2005, 4:00
I agree with Tenebra, I had a cat like that too. My Sweet Salem, that's how I got my name. I think animals have souls. Besides, I still see a black cat out of the corner of my eye all the time. *sigh* anyways, I think this photo isn't a GHOST photo, but like some other people said, I think the dog moved
Comment icon #23 Posted by galrito on 25 June, 2005, 23:20
looks like the ghost dog had a shower and was just shaking it off
Comment icon #22 Posted by allenanddianna on 23 May, 2005, 6:09
My husband & I can still once in awhile feel our cat (who has been dead 21 years) rub her head up against our legs, & not always at night..
Comment icon #21 Posted by javibarr on 19 May, 2005, 11:15
thats right allenanddianna i sure hope all my pets will be waiting for me too when i cross over, plus i can say i don't need to work for a living.
Comment icon #20 Posted by allenanddianna on 19 May, 2005, 4:48
The dog looks like he moved while being photgraphed.Anything alive has a spirit, what would be the sense if they didn't. What makes us so special that only humans can have a soul?? All my pets visit us throughout all these years. If there is a heaven, I won't go if I can't take my pets...!!
Comment icon #19 Posted by egerren on 26 April, 2005, 18:39
Awwwww. Ghost doggie wanna cookie?
Comment icon #18 Posted by tbibera on 9 April, 2005, 7:24
animals DO have souls!! many animal spirits have been sighted, even a horse. the one who commented about the skeleton, upon closer examination, does anyone see an "Albert Einstein" like face on the rear of the dog? It looks like man's face with a lot of white hair. It's looking towards the dog's face. Does anyone else see this?
Comment icon #17 Posted by winkie05 on 29 March, 2005, 10:59
Don't know. But it's very creepy...ooooohh
Comment icon #16 Posted by mtswf4lf on 22 March, 2005, 10:09
Weither its real or not it pulled at my heartstrings. All I have to say is AWWWW.
Comment icon #15 Posted by demented on 20 March, 2005, 6:00
Everyone tries to pull off fake ghost pics, but pics of animal ghosts don't happen often; therefore, I believe this is probably real.
Comment icon #14 Posted by dr_kelz on 6 January, 2005, 19:36
to AlexSanz if you dont belive in souls what are you looking at this kind of stuff then? and animals do have souls as do we. the soul is your true lifeform we are just borrowing these bodies souls have a choice thats why animals have feelings and learning abilaties. they chose to be animals,. but plz this is my belif
Comment icon #13 Posted by little princess on 3 January, 2005, 20:08
you might think im a crazy freak but i have had visits from my dog cookie i didnt get to say goodbye to him because i was on holiday and when i got back my mum told me that my lil puppy was dead. anyway he used to show up every now and then or i could hear his claws tapping on the floor untill i came to grips with the fact that i needed to let him go
Comment icon #12 Posted by alexsanz on 20 December, 2004, 21:18
Why only human have souls (if souls really exist) ??? Whata bullshit !!! This pic is certainly a fake... if not... its proved animals have souls.
Comment icon #11 Posted by tenebra on 24 November, 2004, 6:16
Hm, can't agree, Recker... my cats have more depth, reality, and soul than a number of humans I've met. And I'm pretty sure one of my cats paid me a visit a couple of times after he died. As for this picture, though, I'm with Dwayne_G and faultyliving.
Comment icon #10 Posted by recker on 24 November, 2004, 5:08
Faultyliving is most probably right. Besides I always believed that only humans had souls. So you can't have ghost animals.
Comment icon #9 Posted by insight on 18 November, 2004, 8:17
This photo has been cropped. The original one has much more detail. Whoever scanned this photo used a very low resolution. For a better version of it, look in the new "Ripleys Believe it or Not" book that has just been release on books stores. The full photo was not square as seen on this site, which discredits "Gargryl's" theory.
Comment icon #8 Posted by mandamay321 on 13 November, 2004, 8:03
this is the womans totem, everyone chooses an animale to look over them when we come her, she chose a wolf.
Comment icon #7 Posted by gargyrl on 7 November, 2004, 4:21
Dwayne G and faultyliving, you nailed it on the nosey, the dog didn't stay long enough for the exposure, look at the centering of the group, it was made to include the dog, thank you and good night.
Comment icon #6 Posted by faultyliving on 1 November, 2004, 4:31
If this is a vintage photograph, you must remember it took time for the fil to be exposed. anything walking in and out of the shot turns into a ghjostly image, I have made several of these by slowing the shutter speed on a camera.
Comment icon #5 Posted by swampswan on 3 October, 2004, 23:46
you can see his skeleton.
Comment icon #4 Posted by azraelschroeder on 15 September, 2004, 20:49
looks more like an angry cat with puffed up fur to me...but then again when i see ghost animals they're usually clearer than this, so i dont know how to tell from a picture.
Comment icon #3 Posted by dwayne_g on 27 August, 2004, 21:20
I don't think this is an image of a ghost dog, but rather a ghost image of a dog. In the old days you had to hold a pose for a photograph or it would make a ghostly image. I think the dog wandered into the shot and moved around, making a ghostly image.
Comment icon #2 Posted by geegee on 28 July, 2004, 7:12
Aww, ghost puppy. That makes me a little sad.
Comment icon #1 Posted by sylviabecerra on 25 July, 2004, 4:17
This photo seems interesting to me. I rarely see spirit animals. Is this photo authentic? I'd like to see more of these.
