I'm sorry if I seem a little off, this last happening has me on edge with very little sleep lately. So a little background - I am 21 yrs old and recently married, my wife and I live in a manufactured home park with my parents. We are currently in the process of moving but that's beside the point. My entire life I have been around paranormal happenings and have countless stories to tell. But this most recent one happened about a week ago and I am usually not worried but this is the first time my wife saw it too.
So it was late at night and we went to sleep. I've been having some trouble sleeping lately and wake up at random times of the night to a very heavy air in the room. I have a dog, a white and brown border collie, small for her breed, that sleeps on the ground next to me, and every time I wake up so does she. My dog sleeps through the night pretty well, but I know she's been having trouble as well.
So after about 4 of these weird nights I wake up one day to my dog growling. I am suddenly wide awake and terrified and suddenly my dog pounces and jabs my side hard with her paws (she didn't know I was wide awake). She is growling towards the foot of my bed. My wife suddenly stirs wide awake as well and we give each other this scared look. I grab my phone and turn on my flashlight. I shine it to the foot of our bed and both my wife and I see a dog staring at us. An old gray big dog.
My wife breaks out crying and I look over at her and look back almost immediately and my dog is barking hysterically but the gray dog is gone. I still feel like we are being spied on and cannot shake the feeling. I have been sleeping with lights on ever since. I randomly hear barking or crying of a dog that is not mine coming from different parts of my home and my collie gets defensive every time it happens. Any ideas what it could be or mean or intentions would help.
