This is a true event that happened in 1988.

My parents old dog and I were born around the same time in 1977. This dog and I were very close. In 1988 the dog became sick and had a raspy breathing sound for three days before it died on the family room floor with us by its side.

A few days after its death we were all in the family room and I could hear that raspy breathing sound for probably a minute. It was clear as day. I remember it like yesterday and remember thinking “This proves spirits are real.”

The weird thing is, my mom and sister were in the room too and they couldn’t hear it. After that I never heard from that dog again. It must have been a goodbye.

I’ve never experienced any direct paranormal event with a deceased person, just my old dog.
