This is true absolutely true.

A ghost story, maybe

by bernardtwindwil

I found her hours before a deadly ice storm. I invited her in and fed her. She was shivering.

She had no collar and no tag. I put up flyers. No one claimed her. We became devoted to each other.

She was my sweet baby girl. I named her Tanner. Every afternoon at 3PM I would nap. She would nap with me curled up in my outstretched arm.

If I was not in my bedroom by 3PM, she would come looking for me. This continued for the 23 years we were together. She died in August 4, 2015.

I wasn't sure I could ever take another nap without her. I grieved something fierce. I have managed to take naps again. It wasn't as hard as I thought because of something I cannot explain.

I dread the day my sweet angel dog Max leaves me or vice versa, People can say what they want but to me they are just like humans.

@carlafischer Your youngest son and I have had the same thoughts. If I open my eyes, whether I see something or nothing, I have to call it a hallucination. If I don't look, then I can assign the origination to my limbic system. But all that crap just does not make a good story.

@bernardtwindwil I see your point. "I believe in evidence," Asimov once said and I am with him. Nothing can be supernatural in nature as nothing infinite can exists in a not-endless world. Anyway, encountering phenomena for which we have yet not developed a model to understand them, or getting in touch with their manifestations we cannot yet measure to find scientific evidence, does not mean they do not exist. As sweet as the temptation then might be to tag them supernatural, we must resist to do so; as we must, from an opened mind's viewpoint, not call them mind-constructed, alike---until we _can_ prove safely. And when we cannot, the situation freaks us. Just nature---thus simple. So, from where _he_ stands in life, your youngest son might very well be right in saying you were an old man; but that you hallucinate is very unlikely so he should not assume. Unless, of course, he can prove it... ;)

@carlafischer I absolutely do not think there is any such thing as supernatural. I have an evidence-based life. But this freaks me. My youngest son says that I am an old man and I hallucinate.

Tanner, finally! :) Now I've got a name with which I can tag my imagination of what you once called your shadow in a comment of yours under my story about my so beloved one shadow, Grace. My eyes fill with tears when I read your lines here, watching how these wonderful pictures accompanying them pass by at the same time. I know this is the truth and the truth only. And I know that only these fellow creatures' brave souls enable us to give testament of the very special bands of love they establish with us in their own unique, their own heartfelt, warm, and affectionate way. One can only draw from them. You did wonderfully--- The two of you! ;)
