For the past three months I have been seeing this dog like thing at the bottom of my stairs. Its back is arched like a cats but twisted somewhat. It has a long rat like tail. It has black tuffed, ragged fur. Its legs are skinny like a wooden walking cane. I haven't gotten a good look at its feet but it appears to be just it's paw bones. It has a skinny dog face and its ears are really pointy with tuffs on top. It has a long tongue. About the length of your arm to your elbow. This thing is huge. No normal dog can be this size. And lastly it has yellow glowing eyes.
I have been seeing it for most of my life. Showing up at random times. Sometimes I would see it for a second and then it's gone. Nothing big or too spooky until currently. It didn't show up for a few years, but now its back.
I walked out of my room three months ago to go to the bathroom. Out of the corner of my eye I saw something at the bottom of my stairs. I turned my head and saw this thing. It was staring at me. It didn't do anything for the next week. I would see it at after 9 o'clock at night when I left my room to go to the bathroom. Each time it would stare at me. It was creepy, but manageable at first.
The next week it moved. It started walking up my stairs. Its gaze never looking away from me. It walked strangely. Its body twisting in painful looking ways. I bolted back into my room. I closed my door and ran across my room to grab a knife. I stared at my door all night. Chills ran up my spine. I felt like I was going to vomit from fear alone. Then this wave of hate slammed into my head. Then I realized this thing was on the other side of the door, waiting. This continued for a week. The feeling of hate coming from this creature getting stronger and stronger each night that I dared go outside my room.
Another week goes by. I made the mistake of exiting my room. It walked up the stairs and sat at the other side of my door again. This time something different happened. I was trying to get a grip on myself when something slammed against the door. I jumped in front of my door and held it against the slamming. It felt and sounded like claws scratching on the door and the banging and slamming didn't stop until hours later.
I'm at my wits end. This thing keeps getting more violent. My door hinges have had to be fixed and replaced twice and I've had to paint my door over and over again. What scares me the most is this thing keeps following me. I've lived all over California and each time I move somewhere new I see this creature sometime during the time I live there. I have seen it more then three times, but I'm not dead. It looks like a hellhound, but I'm not really sure what one would look like. So, I'm guessing and assuming from what a few close friends have told me.
I really need help on how to get this creature to leave me alone or get what it wants from me. What should I do? What is this thing? What does it want? Why is it following me?
All I know on how to calm myself down during the visits from this creature is a barrier spell a friend taught me. I'm not sure what kind of spell it is. It worked for two months, but I feel like this creature is slowly breaking the spell.
Any help and knowledge would be valued greatly.
