Ghostly Goings On Part III

I used to love horror movies until I started living on my own.  Then I realised that it is far too creepy, the final straw was after watching The Grudge.

I went home feeling a little bit spooked, had a cup of tea and went to bed.  My little dog at the time curled up to go to sleep on the floor next to my bed and I started to drift off to sleep.

Suddenly the furry muppet was in the hallway barking and I was wide awake with my heart pounding in my chest.  Initially I was going to employ the universal defense against spookiness at night and hide under my covers.  But The Grudge had already prepared for this.  In the movie a lady is followed home by the ghostie and hides uses the cover defense, rather shockingly the spirit creeps under her bed cover and drags her to her doom.  So I sat up and put the light on, small and furry returned to her bed and settled down.  I waited for my heart rate to return to normal so I could go back to sleep.

Later when I had gone to sleep muppet got up and headed for the kitchen.  She started another round of furious barking waking me up in a state of heart attack inducing panic.  I was nearly in tears, shaking as the adrenaline surged round my body.  I put the light on and crept out of bed although anyone with ears would have been able to hear my heart banging.  I tip toed through the hall and into the front room, flicked on the light and saw nothing.  Onwards I bravely went towards the kitchen thinking this is the bit in the horror movie where the stupid teen dies horribly.

Once at the kitchen door I flicked that light on to see something a lot like this:

Yes, my cavalier laughing her furry little socks off at the success of her scary story.  I'm sure her cavalier friends all had a laugh when she told them about her clever trick!

PS, That's not Sasha laughing, it is the fabulous, wonderful Looby who I had before Star and Sasha.  A dog renowned for her wicked sense of humour.

I just read all 3 of your Ghostly Goings On posts and I have to say, I'm so glad that it's 6 in the morning over here and the sun is coming up!

I love a good horror flick but I only consider them good if they're scary and they don't make many that are. To scare me it has to be believable and the hacker/slasher blood and guts type isn't scary to me, just gross.

But yeah, horror is best done when you have someone to share it with.

I can't watch horror movies...not since I was 12 and saw The Vanishing. I'm lame...I know.

That’s the trouble with these dogs, isn’t it? They have such a cavalier attitude!

I haven’t watched a horror film since that one about Emily Rose, and probably never will again.

I can't watch the horror movies either, especially since I don't have dogs to warn me of a zombie attack!

Yeah, I can't see horror films. I've only seen a couple to date (The Ring, The Orphanage) and they are NOT my cup of tea!

That hiding under the cover defense totally works and don't forget if you leave your feet hanging over the bed for too long a monster will tear them off.

I don't do well with scary movies either.
My doggie sleeps sounder than I (jebus she snores!) so she won't fare well for a zombie attack.

Snuggles pulls a stunt like that and then I get her when she is sleeping..... Talk about jumping.
