A dog owner claims her dogs are in contact with ghosts, and she's got a video to ‘prove’ it! But is there a more rational explanation to this paranormal puppy activity?

The short clip, posted on TikTok, is from a Furbo dog camera. The Furbo camera has a barking sensor that sends notifications to your phone. Owners can then access the camera to see what's going on at home.

And it's usually the same thing: a visit from the postman or a minor disagreement between canine siblings. But when Ileen Silva logged into her Furbo camera last week, she saw some ghostly happenings. And now she's convinced her dogs had a paranormal encounter!

A spooky encounter

The clip starts with the small pooches climbing onto the sofa and barking at the window. Nothing unusual there. And there's nothing unusual looking about the blanket lying just a few feet away. But as the barking session continues, the blanket starts to move.

One corner of the fabric rises like it's being pulled on a piece of invisible string. Then it happens again. In fact, it looks like the blanket is breathing. And while nothing was lurking underneath the blanket, it certainly freaked out a few people.

A more 'rational' explanation?

One viewer wrote: "Omg! Scary!!" But not everyone is convinced. One sharp-eyed viewer said the blanket looks suspiciously pixilated - as if it's been photoshopped.

The different barks your dog makes, and what they might be telling you!

So is this video evidence of the paranormal or is someone trying to pull a fast one? Unfortunately, only the dogs know what really happened that day.
