Professor Ernesto Bozzano - The parapsychological manifestations of animals - 130 cases proving animal mediumistic abilities
Case 53. - (Visual, with an anteriority of the animal over human.) - I extract it from the Proceedings of the S.P.R., vol. X page 327. Mr. H. E. S., who does not wish his name to be published, writes the following:
August 8, 1892,
Around 1874, when I was only eighteen years old, I was in my father's house and, one summer morning, I got up around five o'clock to light the fire and prepare tea. A large bull terrier dog, who used to accompany me everywhere, was next to me while I was taking care of the fire. At one moment I heard him making a muffled growl and I saw him looking in the direction of the door. I turned to this side and, to my great terror, I saw a tall and dark human figure whose flaming eyes were moving towards me. I sounded an alarm and fell back to the ground. My father and brothers immediately ran over, believing that thieves had entered the house. I told them what I had seen. They judged that the vision had had no other source than my disturbed imagination following a recent illness. But why then would the dog have perceived something as well? The dog in question sometimes saw things that were invisible to me. He was throwing himself at them by making the gesture of biting in the air. Then he would look at me in a certain way as if he wanted to say to me, "Didn't you see it?"
