Psychic Pets
I have a small dog named Molly, and I’m sure she’s psychic. She loves my dad very much and he travels a lot, so he spends a lot of time away from home. Molly always seems to know in advance when my dad is about to go away. She gets upset and she stops eating her food. She can also tell when he’s coming back. I’ve noticed Molly jumping up at the door, waiting for my dad to return. And when he calls us from the airport, it’s as if she knows, because she gets very excited and starts jumping around and wagging her tail.
Some of the things Molly does are very unusual. For example, if she barks, you know that someone will arrive at the house very soon. A few minutes before anyone knocks on the door, you can hear her banging on the door. We don’t need a doorbell because she always warns us when someone is coming to the house.
This isn’t the only strange thing that she does. One day, when my mom was visiting a friend, I took Molly for her usual walk in the park. For some reason she wanted to go in a completely different direction from the park. So, I followed her and we went on a different walk. She took me to my mom’s friend’s house! When my mom saw us arrive at her friend’s house, she was amazed. Perhaps Molly smelled her way there. Or perhaps she heard my mom tell me where she was going! I don’t know, but I’ve never heard of anyone else’s dog doing this.
Finally, sometimes in the evening I notice Molly standing in front of the TV when it’s turned off. It can be different days and different times, but she stands there looking at the TV. It’s very strange. Then when I switch it on, there’s usually a wildlife show on about big cats – lions and tigers. It’s really funny, but it seems that she knows when these TV shows are on. She isn’t interested in watching TV at any other time! Living with Molly is great fun. She’s a very unusual, psychic dog!

A few minutes before anyone knocks on the door, you can hear her banging on the door. We don’t need a doorbell because she always warns us when someone is coming to the house.
This isn’t the only strange thing that she does. One day, when my mom was visiting a friend, I took Molly for her usual walk in the park. For some reason she wanted to go in a completely different direction from the park. So, I followed her and we went on a different walk. She took me to my mom’s friend’s house! When my mom saw us arrive at her friend’s house, she was amazed. Perhaps Molly smelled her way there. Or perhaps she heard my mom tell me where she was going! I don’t know, but I’ve never heard of anyone else’s dog doing this.
Finally, sometimes in the evening I notice Molly standing in front of the TV when it’s turned off. It can be different days and different times, but she stands there looking at the TV. It’s very strange. Then when I switch it on, there’s usually a wildlife show on about big cats – lions and tigers. It’s really funny, but it seems that she knows when these TV shows are on. She isn’t interested in watching TV at any other time! Living with Molly is great fun. She’s a very unusual, psychic dog!

Psychic Pets
I have a small dog named Molly, and I’m sure she’s psychic. She loves my dad very much and he travels a lot, so he spends a lot of time away from home. Molly always seems to know in advance when my dad is about to go away. She gets upset and she stops eating her food. She can also tell when he’s coming back. I’ve noticed Molly jumping up at the door, waiting for my dad to return. And when he calls us from the airport, it’s as if she knows, because she gets very excited and starts jumping around and wagging her tail.
Some of the things Molly does are very unusual. For example, if she barks, you know that someone will arrive at the house very soon. A few minutes before anyone knocks on the door, you can hear her banging on the door. We don’t need a doorbell because she always warns us when someone is coming to the house.
