The Dog Dream

She searched with her left hand to find he’d disappeared from his side of the bed. She got up, staggered to the study to find him glued to the desktop.

She stole a glance at the monitor and her keen eyes caught what he was searching for.

Dream meaning of a dog barking at its owner

“You’ve got to be kidding me,” she said moving closer. “You woke up by 2 am to search for that?”

“I had a terrible dream, honey.”

“Well, dreams mean nothing and shouldn’t be a bother,”

“Not this kind honey.” He turned to face her.

“I was walking a dog, my own dog when suddenly she turned towards me and barked in a very fiery manner at me. Her poise was dangerous. Her eyes sparked the fire and its deadly canines ready to strike, then I woke up terrified” He narrated.

“Now that’s horrifying,” she said. “What did you do to save yourself?”

“Nothing. Didn’t try running away either. Could have been dangerous assuming it happened really”

“Did anyone call the cops for you?”

“I didn’t steal the dog!!”

“Then you suddenly changed to someone strange and scared the hell out of the poor dog.” She said as she started towards the bedroom. “Come back to sleep dreamer.”

“I wish you got to hear who I think the dog was.” he murmured when she was out of earshot.

    • ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€I wonder why his thought goes in that direction. He must have built up some sentiment to conclude that she actually symbolizes the dog. I just hope she doesn’t get to know.
