I have posted this in the 'dreams' group as well, but i thought it would be appropriate here.I was hoping someone could shed some light on a strange dream i had last week:I had a dream the other night , which was kind of vague, but i remember being in my own room (this part all looked very real) and i opened the door to the hall to go downstairs. As i opened the door i saw a really big white dog standing at the top of the stairway. At first i thought it was my old dog, which died last year, but as i stepped closer, it turned into another type of dog, really big and long and shorthaired. As i looked at it he started moving down the stairs as to get away from me, so that i wouldn't see it, but i wanted to go after it. As i started to do so, i woke up with my heart pounding and i was scared to go out of my bedroom to look at the stairway because the dream had felt so real.. It felt like the dog was some kind of ghost or spirit or something and was really there, no idea if it actually was though..Does anyone know what it could have been? All i know is that i felt its presence but i didn't know if it was good or bad or if it was even actually there.
