I just read “Does Your Pet See Ghosts?” on KYPost.com. It wasn’t a very big article, but it caught my eye because (a) it had to do with ghosts, and (b) it mentioned pets.
Turns out Bobby Mackey’s Music World is opening it’s doors to pets to try their paws at ghost hunting this Friday from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. It’s for a new show to premiere on Animal Planet called “Haunted Animals.” (The producers are looking for stories of either paranormal experiences you’ve had with your pet or a ghost animal you’ve encountered. Click here for more details on how to contact them if you have a story to share.)
I’ve been wondering when someone would get smart and get animals in on the act. An episode of GHI sort of introduced a dog into the mix when they investigated Houska Castle in the Czech Republic. But as far as including an animal as a team member during investigations…hadn’t been done yet.
Which, being the animal lover I am and firm believer their senses may be just as helpful as any other instrument in detecting paranormal activity, I was thinking it was a shame no one’s exploring this avenue more. I know I’d take my Murphy with me on a ghost hunt.
Or, even better, Mr. Meow. I have a story with him I just may submit to the show. He sensed the Angel of Death the night before our beloved cocker, Budly, passed. If he traveled better I’d definitely take him Haunt Jaunting with me.
(Actually, he travels pretty good really. He did fine on our Tennessee to Colorado and then back again Christmas road trip one year. We rented a mini-van, put him and his brother Murphy in the back, and they shared the middle row together. As long as he’s out of his crate he’s cool. He gets mouthy when he’s locked up though.)
Anyway, if you’ve ever wanted to take your pet ghost hunting and can get to Bobby Mackey’s this Friday, here’s your chance to do some investigating with your pet.
Or, if you’ve ever taken your pet ghost hunting, I’d love to hear about it. Leave a comment below.
