What Is This Creature?

This happened when I was 14. One day I was in the backyard at 11 in the night playing with my dog during the summer. It was normal as it usually was when I played with my dog throwing around a stick when my dog stopped and started growling and looking at something in the back of my rather large yard. When I noticed this I looked and immediately saw what my dog was growling at.

A creature about 4 foot tall shaped like a tombstone and slightly pinkish purple with hair covering its entire body. I was stunned and confused about if it was a bush until it made this high pitched gurgling sound. When it made this sound both me and my dog ran inside.

I waited 1 hour before I had the courage to go back outside to investigate. When I inspected there were footprints in the grass that were about the size of a size 9 shoe and a break in the fence. I have not seen the thing return since.

Do any of you guys know what this creature was?

Dog-Headed Man?

I need help understanding what I saw.

Okay so, I woke up one night probably around 3 (which rarely ever happened) I was afraid of the dark and I guess my foster parents shut off my light while I was sleeping so me being awake I decided to just turn on my light and read until I felt tired again.

I reached over to my right towards the light switch and was staring at the ground when I seen something.. Dog paws.

I was thinking wtf and I looked a little higher to see it was a pug and beside it I seen some formal dress shoes.

I looked a little higher to see that the person standing beside the dog was wearing a tux with a red bow tie.
My first thought was why there was a guy in my room, and why was he standing beside my bed?

I finally took a look at his face expecting it to be my foster dad (He usually came into my room at night to take the garbage out) but instead made eye contact with a guy with a pug face.

That sounds weird but it he literally had a pug face. He was really tall too. My guess was around 7 feet tall.

I sat up and just kinda looking at them. Both him and his dog cocked their head at me and disappeared.

I sat there and couldn’t understand what just happened.

I went online and couldn’t find anything so I was kinda wondering if someone else had the same or some what similar situation.

What Is The Loch Ness Monster?

What is the Loch Ness Monster?

Is it real?

I know there have been other supposed reported sightings of loch ness-like creatures around the globe, so could they all be what the Loch Ness Monster is?

More Information about the Loch Ness Monster:

Loch Ness Facts – Loch Ness is the largest body of fresh water in Britain.

  1. There is more water in Loch Ness than all the other lakes in England, Scotland and Wales put together.What Is The Loch Ness Monster?
  2. It is around twenty two and a half miles long and between one and one and a half miles wide, a depth of 754 feet with the bottom of the loch being as flat as a bowling green.
  3. It holds 263 thousand million cubic feet of water which is around 16 million 430 thousand million gallons of water with a surface area of 14000 acres and could hold the population of the world 10 times over.
  4. It is fed by 7 major rivers the Oich, Tarff, Enrich, Coiltie, Moriston, Foyers and Farigaig plus numerous burns, with only one outlet the River Ness which flows 7 miles through Inverness into the Moray Firth 52 feet below the loch surface.
  5. During a heavy rainfall the lochs level has been known to rise by as much as 7 feet and a rise of 2 feet is common place.
  6. The rain catchment area for Loch Ness is so large that a rainfall of just quarter of an inch adds 11.000.000 tons of water to the loch.
  7. It is said that the loch never freezes and this is true.
  8. Because of the great amount of water in the loch a thermocline lies at around 100 feet down in the loch. The top 100 feet of water alters temperature depending on the weather conditions but below the thermocline the temperature never alters from 44 degrees Fahrenheit. So as the surface water cools in winter and nears freezing point it sinks and is replaced by the warmer water from below. This can cause the loch to steam on very cold days, in fact it as been estimated that the heat given off by the loch in a winter is the equivalent to burning 2 million tons of coal.

Do Werewolves Exist?

Throughout my life I’ve always wondered if they exist. I probably sound really dumb asking a question like this, but a few friends of mine claim that they are lycanthropes, or can turn into a wolf, saying it also runs through their blood.

My good friend wants to become one so she does spells, like some she found on the internet.

She wants to become one, but I’m not sure if it’s possible or if they even exist.

What are they exactly?

Inquiry About Supernatural Creatures And Hunters

I’ve been doing my research on this subject and am shocked that there isn’t really anything that is shown to aid me in knowledge about the truth behind our world in any modern text.

First most I am sure in the existence in demons and angels, however what about other creatures, such as dragons, vampires, etc.?

I also want to know if there are people who hunt such beings and if there is a group so I know to avoid them.

Finally is there any basic knowledge you can pass to me as to make sure I can protect myself against demons, ghosts, and the possibly other creatures?

Thank you for your time.

Fast Moving Object In The Woods

When I was around 12 I was in the woods behind my house in the middle of the night. There were three other kids with me and out of no where something white ran past us. And it was about the size of us, it was so fast it ran about a hundred or so yards in literally a blink of an eye.

We saw it go in the direction of a shed and it seemed to have gone into the shed. Because we heard a bang on the shed but we went to look inside but there was nothing.

So I was wondering has anyone ever seen anything similar or maybe have any idea what it could have been?

What are Mermaids And Mermen?

So what are they? Are they physical creatures, just myths, or are they elemental beings? Are mermaids both in physical form and in elemental/spirit form?

A Mermaid by John William Waterhouse
A Mermaid by John William Waterhouse

I have a friend who asks mermaids for help when she does her tarot readings and other things and ever since I started talking to her, I have had 2 dreams of mermen and mermaids! I never have any dreams of them and they were quite nice to me in my dreams. They even took me swimming with them in my 2nd dream and I ended up turning into a mermaid. It felt awesome and in that dream, all the mer-people got together with me to create positive energy and to protect me from negative energy and negative people. It was very interesting and I did like the dream.

So far, when I see the mer-people in my dreams, they look like normal humans. As soon as their bodies touch water, their lower body transforms into a fish tail like a mermaid and it has scales like a fish and it is usually blue color with greenish blue fins.

Are these nature spirits visiting me? Are the mermaids safe to be contacting with? I don’t want my friend to get into any trouble. My friend really feels connected to mermaids. She even cleans the beaches when she has the chance as a way of saying thanks or something out of respect for the mermaids.

Thank you for reading! I figured this might be one of the few mermaid questions because I couldn’t find any on this website!

What Made That Growling Sound?

About two years ago I went out on my rear screened porch to smoke a cig before turning in for the night. It was somewhere between 12:00 &  1:00 am.

As I stood by the table I suddenly heard a very deep growl from the corner of my home about 20-25 ft. away. The growl sounded like it was maybe even closer than the corner of my home. I snap my head to the right instantly to see what it was, and there was nothing there.

I knew instantly it was not an animal, it wasn’t that kind of growl. I have wondered many times what it could have been and have never heard it since. Any explanations?

Was This Elf Like Creature An Alp?

(note: I received this not as a question but as a story. The story does bring up a question though, and a very interesting one – CareTaker)

The past 5 years I have noticed that a lot of paranormal things have happened to me. It’s not a matter of looking for things and wishing to see them they just appear when I’m going about my business. (Shadows and sense that someone is with me)

I do see myself as an opened minded person, but never truly believed. Until one night maybe 3 years ago….

I woke up in the middle of the night. I don’t remember why but I was woken suddenly and felt very awake. I was looking around my room when my eyes were drawn to my bedroom door. Sometimes when I wake I see things or people floating around (Sill in dream state).

So anyway… My eyes were drawn to a small black figure near my door. As usual I stared at it expecting it to fade away. But it didn’t. They more my eyes adjusted to the dark, the more I could see what it was. Okay so the best I can describe to you was that it looked like Dobby the elf from Harry potter. As soon as I realized, this was real I sat up in a panic. I always sleep with my phone and it was on top of the covers. As my phone flew across the room between me and the thing it reacted. I screamed. It’s facial emotions were scared and it moved back into the corner. This was the biggest blood curdling scream. And I wish I hadn’t done it. It seemed afraid of me or shocked. I turned my lights on and it was gone. My parents then came running down the hall.

I told my dad that I had seem something and his response was “was it the old lady with grey hair, floating in the air from shoulders up?” I said no but I was terrified because I had also seen the old lady.

Ever since that night I cannot sleep alone. If I am alone it’s with a light so I can see around me room.

The worst part of this is, a few months later I got a speeding fine. And sitting in the back seat was my little elf friend. He was kind of glowing. I knew exactly who it was as soon as I saw the picture.

alpI have done some research into this guy. According to Wikipedia (not sure that’s a good source) it is known as an ‘alp’.

It haunts females, it comes at night (probably why I haven’t seen it when my light is on) and it haunts people’s dreams. I am of german origin and this creature is from german folklore. I find the coincidences too important to ignore. (Link provided by author)

This is one of my many stories.
