Ghost Dogs - Rumor or Unnatural Presence?

As a writer of Dark Suspense (Thriller, Suspense, Horror), I enjoy hearing, reading, and writing Ghost Stories. Always have. Always will.

With Halloween approaching, ghostly type stories abound. There's nothing like the thrill of being frightened, while actually being safe.

For example, there's the appearance of ghost dogs.

Ghost dogs can be seen racing along the side of the road or across in front of your car, either at dusk or during the darkness of night. Smoky, gray, brown, or black shadows streak along beside your car or dart from one side of the road to the other as you drive down the road.

Many people have seen them or think they have. What are they? Tricks of vision? Optical illusions? Supernatural presences? Unexpected hauntings? Unnatural warnings?

Imagine, a woman alone, in the midst of a long-distance drive. Our lone woman, exhausted from the drive, pulls off the main road in search of an out-of-the-way bed and breakfast or inn. Along the too-dark fog-shrouded winding graveled road, ghost dogs appear.

So, which is it? Rumor or unnatural presence? (I choose to believe the latter.)
