Reader Submission: Ghost Dog

“My husband and I bought our first house in 1993. We moved from Bernardsville, NJ to Phillipsburg, NJ. The house in Phillipsburg was built in 1905 or somewhere around that time frame. Our kitchen was an add-on; it was not part of the house when it was first built.

Reader Submission: The Loyal Ghost Dog


“My dog passed away two months ago. I am still sad to this day, but something unusual has been happening lately. Whenever I’m home alone, I hear the noises he used to make when he was alive.
