Does a big black dog have any significance?
#11
The town I live in is full of paranormal activity. In the neighborhood where I spent most of my childhood, there was a large black dog that didn't really seem to belong to anybody. I was walking home from school, probably when I was around 8 or 9, and this dog literally appeared out of nowhere. He stood in front of me, staring me down. I was too terrified to move. I had seen the dog around the neighborhood before, and it had always scared me. I've never been afraid of any other dog, but the memory of that one terrifies me to this day. I remember he didn't growl or snarl or anything like that, he just stared. Without any reason, he turned around and walked away.
That probably doesn't really answer anything for you, but I do think that some animals are actually spirits. Like any other spirit, it can either be good or evil.

I found out that the movie was called Black Dog. Kinda wierd if you ask me.

I tried to reply last night, and I believe I screwed it up. If you've already heard this, I'm sorry.
When I was little, there was a large black dog in the neighborhood that didn't seem to belong to anybody. I was afraid of it, and I'm normally not afraid of dogs. I was walking home from school one day and suddenly there the dog was, seemingly out of nowhere. I was too scared to move, and he just kept staring me down. As quickly as he appeared, it seemed he was gone.
It always was a story from my ghost-filled past that I never talked about much, because I didn't really think anyone would take me seriously. Thank you so much for sharing this.

For a long time I've had a scarlet wolf/dog like demon following me, so I can understand how scared you must have felt.
Hey, is it wrong to link to your own stories? http://larten-roolz.deviantart.com/art/T...-132107791 Cos if it is, then I'm in trouble.

That must have been the demon you were talking about following you, PPG. I believe that demons can take on any form they want. If they're wanting to scare you, they will appear menacing, like a wolf/dog that seems to come out of nowhere. I also believe that demons can appear as something comfortable and familiar if they are trying to ease you into a false sense of security. I know that prayer does not eliminate demonic danger, but it is a very powerful weapon against it. I pray for protection against evil every day. We should never ignore it if our gut tells us something isn't right.......even if it's a recurring dream, there is something significant. Many faiths, including those practiced by the Native Americans, believe in spirit animals, both good and evil.

I think the Native Americans have it more right than any of us. But I could be wrong. Classic Smile

:BUMP cuz.....:

The Black Dog myth, or legend goes like this:
Back in the days of trucking before the on board computers, truckers could drive eighteen to twenty hours a day, and log they slept the legal eight hours. So a lot of them would run on practically NO sleep. That has an effect on your body, mind and soul.
The Black Dog is said to appear when you had crossed your limit, it would materialize in the road, or be seen running into the lane directly in front of the truck. A lot of people will swerve frantically out of reflex. Usually causing the driver to wreck, either in a solo accident or into another vehicle. The ones that don't swerve will either screech to a stop, or nervously slow way down. It was/is said that the dog is the ghost of a family pet that was killed in the family car, with the family when an over tired trucker fell asleep and smashed them in to dust. Now, supposedly he (the dog) will come for you when you were at the end of your abilities.

Having driven many, many thousands of miles, I can tell you that the myth has firm grounding. I have witnessed what I believe to be the phenomenon. I was driving, been driving since Boca Raton Florida, and was in Livonia Michigan( well out side of there ) on M-59 I believe. I was tired, speeding and stupid. Thank GOD the road was fairly clear. It seemed to come from the truck itself. Right in the far right corner of my vision, I saw a large black shape My brain instantly thought ' dog ' I was thankfully in a 24' box truck so when I braked it didn't jackknife like a rig would have. I stopped as fast as I could. I walked/ran back with a flash light and my .45 just in case I had merely mortally wounded this animal. I walked around five or six hundred feet back passed where the skid started so If there was a dog, it magically went through my truck.
When you are that tired, you know in the back of your mind that you are, quite frankly , wielding a deadly weapon at eighty miles an hour. You try to watch for things, to be ahead of your reflexes. Your body needs sleep. When you are too tired your brain doesn't ' fire ' right. You will see things that aren't there, jump in front of the truck, because your tired frazzled brain expects to see something.
There it is. Black dog trucker myth explained. However too little too late as of the timing

What was your "feelings" about the dog? As it sat and watched you, did it just sit there or did it snarl? Don't assume anything, think about the details in what you remember?

Just a case in point, in my own childhood home...there was a large white dog/wolf that seems to haunt the home as well. Now the animal always would seem to be seen with it's mount open and it's tongue slightly hanging out to one side. It didn't seem threatening, and if it approached it would jump up on it's hind legs and place it's front paws on the bed and look at either my brother or me. It did that more with my brother than myself, and yes I remember seeing it together with my brother as a real young child. For a while my brother and I shared a Full size bed in a single bedroom down stairs (1st floor) that was near our parent's master bedroom. After we were moved upstairs to the new bedroom up there that we shared and both had our own beds...we never saw it again.

The animal never seem to feel threatening in anyway, more interested in us or my brother. It's eyes to me that I can remember seem to be normal color or maybe blue...nothing non normal for a husky or wolf. Now I grew up knowing a half wolf/husky mix by the name of King. He was a pet of my father's friend whom lived behind us. That animal was huge. Everyone was scared of that animal, but he always seemed to like me. I guess he like that I would share my ice cream with him. He use to knock other kids down to eat their ice cream but would sit there and share with me. He would come and sit with me and let me stroke his hair and hug him at the park or ball field. Other kids always gave him a wide birth because he would bight or snarl at people but never me.

So next time you see the "spirit dog" try to look at the details and think about what feelings you have at the time. Have you ever tried to pet the animal or achknowledge it?
