Zoe sees a ghost?

One of the greyhounds I did a photo session with was Zoe, a brindle female with ears that stand straight up. Our second greyhound, Nikki, had ears that did the same thing. We've all come to adore ears that stand at attention. It's just too cute.

Gettysburg has a reputation for Civil War ghosts that some people say wander the battlefield and in town. While we didn't see any, perhaps Zoe did while I was photographing her. They're sighthounds, after all. What say you?

  1. Oh, I really wished we could have gotten a good ghost shot! I love Zoe's expression!

    I loved the history we heard about on the ghost tour. There are so many eerie and fascinating stories to be told there!

  2. i've never taken in a ghost tour. i'm usually relaxing with friends from GT every night that i'm in town. but, yes, the area has had a whole lot of history.

  3. Haha, I like these photos! My cat recently has been doing the ghost thing - but not Bernie. But, he's weird in his own way :-P

  4. which just makes bernie all the more lovable, right?

    one of our adopted stray black cats, tooey, always sees ghosts in our house: down the hallway, around a corner, on the other side of a room. his pupils get as big as saucers!
