One bright sunny day, my family and Iwent camping in our RV. We only used the RV as a place to sleep and cook our meals. We ate and cooked our supper outside. One night we were sitting around our campfire when we heard a howling really close to us.
"Dad did you hear that?" I asked, as I looked around to see where the howling had come from.
"Yes I did. Doreen don't worry. You know there's a lot of wildlife teeming around here," he said, with a bemused look on his face.
I swear that I heard him laugh a little at me. However I did not find it amusing. When we went to bed that night I heard a growling in my room. I sprang up into a sitting pasion. I looked at the place where the growling had come from. None of my dogs were there and there was nothing visible standing in the spot where the growling had come from.
All of a sudden there were four impressions on my bed. Then I saw a ferocious Labrador Retriever in front of my face. It stopped growling and wagged its tale instead. It looked like it was solid. It just stood there staring at me wagging its tale. It let me pet it. Then it disappeared.
I told my dad the following morning what happened while we were packing up and getting ready to go home. He told me that it was all a dream. When we got home the same thing happened that night. Soon the dog was visible to everybody. After that I knew that the ghost dog was now one of our pets.
