My hound jumped out of her bed last night at 2am, stood still and quiet, just listening carefully like she was about to chase a rabbit out of a thicket.

I listened too, thinking it might be raccoons outside. I heard nothing at all.

All of a sudden she ran downstairs and started pacing between my living room and dining room. Looking out 1 window and then the other, but not stopping for more than a second or 2. I took a look around, nothing I could see.

I let her out in the yard. She slowly sniffed around, but no rappid back and forth sniffing (like if she was tracking something). Then she just sat in the yard...sitting...for like 15 minutes until I called her back to the house.

No barking or anything.

Not 5 minutes later, the pacing began again. No barking, no whining, just pacing...all night, until about 5:50am.

I was a little worried about her, so I stayed up with her. Once she curled up in her bed, she stayed there until I left for work.

It was very odd behaviour for her. She usually sleeps the whole night through.

Absolutely before the east coast earthquake last August there was really strange animal behavior occurring at the national zoo in DC.

Something was definitely going down.....It could have been a break-n, a strange person walking around in the neighborhood, anything.

But a dog is one of the best alert systems you can get when it comes to figuring out that "something has changed" in your environment, neighborhood, etc.....

I doubt it was a break-in. All my neighbours know each other. We all have dogs.

I looked around outside a bit, and she would have barked if someone was out there at that time of night.

We are backed on a lake, so no one could be lurking in the back, and the front is quite well lit, so also hard not to be seen.

She was just so out of character I though she might be sensing something...maybe?

Animals are way more intuned than we are. Everytime there's going to be a thunder storm my horses and dogs all act weird. The dogs want in the house and the horses run around and kick and buck and snort. I read an article about the tusnami in Thailand about how there were hardly any animal deaths because they had all fucked off ( if they could )just prior to the event and headed for higher ground. It was very interesting. They pick up the vibrations we can not feel. Pay attention to your dog. He or she will always alert you to danger.

Thanks dude. I do pay attention to her, thats why I stayed up all night, and can barely keep my eyes open today.

If she acts like that tonight maybe I'll tape it.

I live on the seacoast in New Hampshire. Yesterday, my dog did behave weirdly. She came in from her tie-ot, after a stint of chipmunk watching, and jumped on the sofa. That's her usual couch potato behavior. Then, she started to bury her face in the cushions, growl, bark, slither, then jumped to the floor, sounded low growls, paced rapidly, and repeated the entire routine. My daughter saw the whole thing the first time,and got my attention to see the second act. The dog is usually placid...she's a beagle/terrier/ yellow lab mix. I assume it has something to do with the weather? However, my neighbor's cat has become very needy and clingy towards my daughters and to me. He uusually ignores us. Hmmm....

My pup is a beagle. Usually quite energetic, but I run her a great deal (I did yesterday too), and she spends a good anoutnt of time in the woods. She is very familiar with the "critters" around our area, but she sure did act weird last night.

I doubt it. She would have been barking and growling. Plus I got and stayed up and did not see or hear or see a thing.

Interesting. My cat was acting very weird last night and this am as well. Im on the NE east coast MA/NH line. Also been seeing different types of animals i've never before seen in my area in the 7 years I have been here. Very strange indeed. Are you on the east coast Canada?
