My dog has been acting weird

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 30, 2018, 7:19 AM

So recently, something strange has been going on with my dog.

This started around September this year. First time it happened, I was sound asleep, peacefully dreaming about memes and suddenly my dog Kakashi started barking (Yes I named my dog Kakashi, I went through a Naruto phase..). I quickly ran towards where he was with a baseball bat in my hand.. I thought maybe he saw a thief or something, but he was just standing there barking and growling at the window facing the front yard. I took a peek outside to see if there were any creepers around, nope nothing. I calmed my dog down by giving him lots of hugs, he calmed down, started to whimper a bit.. but calmed down.

Next day same thing happened, I woke up to him barking and growling at the outside window. I was like 'Yo bro whats going on? Is someone sneaking around outside the house?' and my dog didn't reply. cos he doesnt actually speak english. What the heck is going on? I checked the time and it was 1:19 am.

A few days later it happened again! Things were starting to get weird.. I actually started to panic a bit, I live alone with my dog in the middle of nowhere, the nearest house is like 5 minutes away by walking. I thought about calling my neighbour Charlie to see if he has seen anything, but its so late already.. the time is.. umm the time is.. 1:19am. Ok whats going on... I got more and more scared thinking about it, why is Kakashi barking at 1:19am?

A week went by without anymore midnight barking, thank God. I could actually sleep properly. One morning I picked up my local newspaper, front page was a news about a murder in the local area. A young girl named Elizabeth Dawson was found dead in a park nearby, stabbed to death by an unknown attacker, apparently on the night of her fleeing away from her attacker, she went around town trying to find help, she was shouting and trying to find houses for help, a few witnesses heard her but couldnt find her, this all happened around 1:00am to 1:30am. I read through the news article and a cold sweat ran down my spine, Kakashi must've heard her and started barking that night, maybe Elizabeth even ran up to my front door screaming for help but I couldn't hear her... This made me frustrated at myself, this was happening in my home town and I couldn't offer my help. This story made me sad and also scared about the local crime..

But what was going on with the other two times when Kakashi barked at 1:19 am..?

Ghosts... it was ghosts. Dogs can sense spirits trust me.

He could be barking at something digitally-controlled/ scheduled to happen every day at 1:19-ish.

I think those were the dates I tried to astral project to find your house.
Sorry for the disturbance.

I'm just sitting hear laughing at all the people who don't know they shouldn't take Ry's Halloween and April Fools' journals seriously. XD

It could have been the unknown man, just sneaking around your house.
Viokcha Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love your Hallween journals! To be honest, that's a scary story you've got here!
Maybe Elizabeth's ghost replayed the scene and Kakashi sensed her? And by the way, nice name! I called my cat Deidara, so I can relate to the Naruto-animals phase :XD:

That's scary, dogs have better senses than we do. Stay safe.

stay safe Ry...

To offer a more reasonable, yet scarier, thing. Maybe you should have the police sweep your property. The murderer may be hiding, and your dog is trying to warn you. Dogs are extremely smart creatures, and you should pay attention when they sense danger.
Vap0rwaveRav33 Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
it might be Elizabeth's ghost, because when somebody is either murdered (like in this case) or that somebody committed suicide, the spirit of that person, in this case, Elizabeth, will be confused and not know that they died. Animals (besides humans), can sense a ghost nearby. Hopefully that is a bit helpful.

I think Kakashi has been sensing Elizabeth and/or the murderer in at least one of those instances. Dogs do have sharper senses than we do, so I do believe your hunch that he might've heard something that you weren't able to hear. Regardless, really sorry to hear about Elizabeth, and knowing that there's a murderer lurking around your neighborhood is terrifying. Hope things turn out okay :heart:

Wow... that would be terrifying and frankly paranoid-inducing... I literally check the pantry for murderers before I go to bed as it is... <.<

I have to wonder if maybe Kakashi was left with a major impression of that night, and perhaps he has dreams about it, to which he wakes up and barks..? :/

I know so far dogs or animals in general have a sixth sense xD or something similar to that. Like dogs knowing and starts to bark when an earthquake will arrive :'D seriously, dogs gets all alarmed and stuff like that. So, yeah, probably your dog smelled danger and wanted to let you know. As for the other two times, could be something else probably or the killer being around there like nothing happened... (just a theory tho).

At least, for us, back in 2004 our dog started to bark and we were just there to keep her quiet. A few minutes later our neighbors ran to our door calling for help because her daughter was assaulted by a thief :'D while our dog tried to let us know we didn't paid attention and we could have even stopped an abuse if we would have had paid attention... dogs has a reason for barking... i've learnt that and now when my dog is barking at 2am in the morning I peek out from the window to see what's going on. I rather prefer to be woken up all night and be ready to call for help, than sleeping and not know what's going on outside. Someone or you could be in danger.

I had a dog who would do this all the time, but there's also a lot of tweakers in my neighborhood, so he was probably just barking at them.
VixenAfton Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2018
It's not quite weird. Dogs somehow tend to smell danger or death. My own dog is sweet herself, but one day I found her growling at my neighbour, my neighbour died the next day of an epileptic seizure.

Rather than anything related to the supernatural, it's likely that there's a wild animal or stray/feral cat or dog wandering around your house.  Assuming that you're in Australia, you may want to consider dingos, given that USA dogs are known to react very similarly to the presence of coyotes and wolves.  Also, it's possible that the woman's killer had been scoping out the area, or some burglar.
NECRODARKUS Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
it´s a cereal killer
greyanimebeast Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
well it could be something as simple that a cat or a wild animal walk by at that exact time. Animals can, and sometimes do go to the same place over and over at a set timepoint. I have read a few tales about dogs going to sertain places at the same timestamp days on end to wait for someone or to get something. Wild animals can become stuck in habit as well.

Also If the woman ran that close to your house screaming loud i doubt you would have missed it.
You could put a camera in the window and set it to run at that hour to see what walks by and upsets your dog.
The ghost of the woman maybe?

Though i personaly would be constantly scared after knowing there was a murder anyway near my home <.<

The wind hitting my door can set my dog off. Markedly so wile he is a sleep, so its is not that uncommon. 
Absbor-J Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
Maybe Kakashi waited for the girls return
and for letting you know.

Oh my... If it was before(The first two times) dogs have sense if something is wrong, but i dont know how far ahead in time.

I actually have been facing the same thing with my Dog, Cocoa, for a few years

He sees or hears literally nothing at any time, then he'll be barking like crazy. He is 9 years old, so my mom and I think it might be his age. Not sure though.

Dont really know how to help with it, sorry. 🙁

Crimes are in everywhere around the world with the newest updates of rules, to allow revenge in FREE WEAPONS areas. 

That's why I suggested to arm people, so to defend themselves in the danger time.

Criminals, thieves, gangs, rapers, and Mafia is the big supporter just like what happened to Princess Diana, and no one could help to stop it or reveal it.

Because it's the presidents who were forced to allow it. So, ... If you gave help to her the gang will find you and punish you for your interruption. 

You know Royal families are behind all this mess around the world, and they made like like a huge forest all will be lost and killed there. They can stop it if they will but you know the sake is above everything, even blood, and freedom.

So, ... it's your decision to be scared and hid or face it and tolerate the punishment. 

About the Dog, he might saw ghosts you know animals could see spirits and hear their chatting. 

I can't pet any coz I know they will die, like some cats, birds, fishes and even plants. I can't pet anything coz Magicians won't allow it. They caused the mess around the world to tease people with their most beloved things to their hearts. 

They will keep teasing and scare people till their last breath in this hell life.

Dogs have a good sense of hearing and scent which allows them to find or hear things that we humans can't. It is possible that the other two times, your dog may have heard something moving outside like a squirrel or a bird(but I highly doubt it...). They also say that dogs are able to see ghosts soooooo...
You should try to up your security a bit, a few cameras should be good. I hope that you are feeling better and be careful! 
Endorell-Taelos Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2018   General Artist
Sounds like the first episode of Supernatural. About the Woman in White reliving her last day before her death, also if Ghosts in real life can relive their last hours of when they were alive.. It could be your Dog seeing the girl's ghost doing the same thing she did before her death. :D I guess in this world anything is possible. :shrug:

This feels like a fucking Creepypasta or a fanfic, hope you're both okay.

Dogs have incredible senses, much better than us.  The other two times could have been that man prowling around, looking for either a victim or a dumping location.  Either way, your dog was protecting you big time.  My thoughts and prayers go to that girl’s family.  Ry, I suggest you bump up your security, whether it’s caneras or an updated alarm system.

i heard about a girl called Elizabeth Dawson on the TV. it could be that your dog was trying to protect you. Jeep the Attaacker away from the house.

Agreed he probably heard what was going on and was defending the huo
