Ghost dog incident

About 7 years ago a friend and I had been driving back home, he dropping me off. We were on a long stretch of open road in the city, a snowy clear night. Visibility was good. He and I were joking, as I remember laughing and turning to say something, and I caught movement in front of us, looked forward , and we both said (expletive)! at the same time, and hit a large dog head on. It was standing directly in front of us, looking at us. I saw it in a flash before we heard and felt the thud of the car hitting it.
I told him we had to go back and check on it. I have seen wounded dogs hit by cars, and wanted to see if it was alive. It took him a minute or so to turn around after cajoling him to go back and look for it. He figured it was dead. At the least I figured we needed to drag it out of the road. It looked to have been a husky, I saw a flash of grey fur. Having the road to ourselves, a clear moonlit night, and a very large open area of land to the right where we hit it, and its size, I figured it would be easy to spot. Besides, we hit it dead on. He was driving a Hinda Civic, and the dog easily stood above the height of the hood. A wounded dog that big would be simple to spot. It wasn't.
I rolled down the window and sat on the door, perched halfway out of the car so I could see everywhere. There was no sign of it at all. With the distance we had to drive to turn around, and as hard as we hit it, it was unnerving. The distance into the hills was too far for an injured dog to run, and the field was clear, even better, the snow and moon gave plenty of contrast to see clearly. Not a sign of the dog anywhere.
The next morning my friend came back in and said he had found a 'clear goo' on his bumper. The strangest part was a few days later he said he was driving in same area at night, and saw the dog again on the same road looking at him as he passed.I have heard of the 'woman in white' sightings, but never a ghost dog. Especially never one where two people saw the dog, and felt and heard a solid impact on the vehicle.

In what part of the world do you live?Many western European countries have reports of ghostly dogs going back centuries.
"Black shuck" is the name given to one of England's most famous apparitions.
"Pooka" would be it's celtic counterpart.

I'm in US, another reason I found it an anomaly.

In the US it really would not be that Odd compared to Europe. Dogs were very important spirit type guides to many Native americans in the past. There were allot of verbal stories handed down about them. And unlike most of the European and Celtic stories there were allot of positive stories about them also. Dogs and wolves were very revered by those cultures..

Just throwing something out there but if that was a "spirit type dog" like in the native america lore it may have saved your life and you would never know it. There are no accidents with them. It may have been intentional to slow you down and get you to stop possibly altering the course of something that would have happened had you kept going at that specific time. May have delayed you enough to alter the course of something.

And the second sighting might have just been him checking on his handywork pleased with himself that
you were still around.

Who said monster? Remember what gary said Were. Reading comprehension. : ) Jk. No the wolf in allot of native american beliefs is
One of the highest order of spirit guides. They are not for the most part considered bad or evil.

How badly damaged was the car?
LincolnGenghis   posted:1/5/2013 9:05:52 PM  (Reply)
There is no mention of damage in the story.
Just the mention of clear goo. I suppose that could be
Any number of things.

Iv had many experiences with animal spirits. Never had any "goo" or extoplasium.
LincolnGenghis   posted:1/5/2013 10:22:21 PM  (Reply)
His car may have been assualted by a mechaphile while it was parked somewhere and the goo might be unrelated to the wolf sighting.

Yes there are mechaphiles out there I could post a nice video or web page link but I think I made
some people ill the last time I did that. :)

It would also take away for the cool topic.

I know this isn't exactly the same thing, but I recently had a strange but moving incident. My Chihuahua, Chico, age 9, died a few months ago. He always slept with me, sat with me, protected me, waited for me in the window if I were gone. We were inseparable. He was my BABY. The night he died, I observed a flickering, flame colored 'orb' ... twice. Then, as I went to bed, neither of my other dogs that usually slept with me as well would even come near me. I tried and tried to coax Gracie, my other Chihuahua, to snuggle with me. She NEVER sleeps anywhere else. However, this night, she jumped up to me then down very quickly. She slept on the couch with the Boxer. Nobody slept with me that night. Except maybe Chico? I haven't seen the orb since. What do you think?

Nebraskahickchic you must be from Wahoo, I think chico wasn't quite ready to move on at that time. Not until he saw you safe one last time. If anyone doesn't believe dogs have souls, just look deep in their eyes. Now cats are different, I can't teach one of them to bark.

Interesting. I had forgotten this post til yesterday, so sorry for delay in response. I will pass that on to my friend. Since he was the driver and only he saw it again, perhaps it was looking out for him, as I never saw it again. Having Native background and other unexplained events in my life, this sounds intriguing to say the least. I'll write my friend and see what he thinks. Thanks for input, lots to consider.

no damage at all, so far as I recall. He never mentioned anything but the 'goo'.

Until recently I had never heard much of animal ghosts. I had another incident in broad daylight a couple years after the driving one. I was walking around the corner to my apartment, and saw a dog running towards me, very briefly but vivid. He was transparent, obviously a ghost. I had a German shepherd years ago that vanished one night, running off into the dark to chase something as was his habit. He always came back, but that night he never returned. He was my best mate. I had gotten over his loss and wrote it off as a hopeful wish that he was found and given a good home. He vanished many years ago, this event was well over a decade later. I hadn't even been thinking of him in a long while. So it was a shock to get this glimpse of a very happy dog running towards me, oddly wearing a bandanna which he never did, yet somehow I had no question it was my dog. It seemed he was just saying hi. I spoke with a Native friend of mine, one of the very few I shared anything with. He said the dog was most likely just saying hi, exactly what I had felt. He said animals will do so, something I had never heard of nor ever expected to have happen.
Perhaps it is as you thought, Chico wanted to spend another night with you, perhaps his last night before he left. I imagine he may have simply warned off the other dogs, letting them know, HEY! Mamma is all MINE tonight! Sleep on the couch, guys!
Closer to what you experienced was my Mom, who also has a very clear connection to 'outside' things. Mom had an adopted dog,and it was time for her to be put to sleep as she was very old. My Mom was very sad as the dog had been with us a long time. She was there as the needle was put in, and felt the dog go. She said as the dog died, she looked at my Mom, who heard of all things (amazingly) a voice say clearly, "I never knew you loved me so much".
An ex of mine had always had Danes as pets growing up. Great dogs but sadly short-lived. The current one her family had and I got on famously. She said every Dane picks one favourite person, and he had picked me. It caused some consternation with her Mum when I drove up, as he would get very happy and excited when he heard my car pull up for visits. He would explode from the house and the race would be on, much running and wrestling and grass rolling would ensue til we were both exhausted.
When my ex saw this connection, she told me of one of the Danes she had been raised with, which picked her as its favourite person. Her family lived in a very rural area, plenty of space for the big dogs to run and play. This one would make the rounds before it slept, checking on everyone nightly before it went to its bed. When it was old, she had a visit one night unlike the others. He came in to check, but stayed with her, sleeping on her bed, quite out of character. In the morning they could not find him. She mentioned the visit, and everyone in her family had received one. Late they found him in a field or some such, which is why I mentioned the rural area. He knew it was his time, and made sure to spend extra time with them all individually.
Your experience is unique as I have never heard of an 'orb puppy' before. From what I have related, you can believe I think very easily that Chico was there for one last night of cuddling. Dogs are our best mates, full of love. Some cats as well, horses I hear as well. It is bittersweet for you, as I am sad you lost a buddy, but happy for you that he may have said goodbye in his own special way. Tough guy that I am I have a few tears in my eyes at the moment thinking of this, lol. I have a special place in my heart for dogs, animals, and those who love them as much as I do.
