This Owner Got Scared After Seeing What Appeared To Be Her Dog Levitating In Home Camera Footage

Interview With Owner

On the afternoon of September 21st, a home camera captured an intriguing moment, where a family’s dog looked like she was partaking in a paranormal occurrence. The dog in the photo seemed to be levitating!

Bruna Gutemberg, one of the owners, was shocked at first but later realized that a shadow from hanging clothes was in the perfect place to create an optical illusion. Since Bruna casually posted her dog pictures in the Facebook group Arrombadinhos FOFOS Do Kralho, she decided to share this image with her peers, as well.

As much as the image itself was a shock, the amount of likes and people commenting on the image also took Bruna by surprise.

So, without further ado, we present you with a levitating dog and the reactions of people in the comment section on the Instagram post.

Bored Panda reached out to Lilica’s owners, who live in Guarulhos, São Paulo, Brazil. To learn more about Lilica, Bruna shared some information first: “She is 9 years and 7 months old. She has been with my wife since 2014 and with me since the end of 2019, when we got married.”

Surely, seeing something that tricks your mind into thinking that your dog is just casually levitating must have been shocking. Bruna shared how she was able to capture this moment and how she felt upon seeing it.

“We always leave a camera at home, because we have 3 dogs, and they sleep inside the house, during the day they stay in the covered backyard and a little inside the house. So we keep an eye on it.”

“Thursday, September 21st, I went to check if they were okay. When I opened the camera, I was scared. I thought: What is this dog doing?” shared Bruna.

The findings on September 21st shocked the owners, who later shared the image on Kralho’s Arrombadinhos FOFOS Facebook group

Bruna shared more about her first thoughts after seeing the image: “I was in shock. I thought to myself: What is this dog doing? I looked at it for a while thinking ‘is she flying?’ Then I decided to zoom in and saw that it was the shadow of the clothes.”

Bruna also shared how the image got online.
“I posted it on Kralho’s Arrombadinhos FOFOS Facebook group. I always post dog stuff there. Then the group administrators posted it on their Instagram page,” wrote Bruna.

Fascinated by music, movies and sitcoms, I'm passionate about social media and can't live without the internet, especially for all the cute dog and cat pictures out there. I wish the day had about 40 hours to be able to do everything I want.

Hello Pandas! My name is Ieva, though it's often mistaken for the word 'Leva,' and in Lithuanian, it means 'loser' (insert the pain emoji). While I don't take offense if you accidentally call me a loser, I thought I'd share something interesting with you, which I also do professionally at work. Anywayyy, my favorite part here is introducing you to creative people who deserve just as much recognition as famous celebrities. Besides that, I also enjoy memes and funny, lighthearted posts, and occasionally, I find myself drawn to a bit of internet drama.

I am curious to know what people were seeing to give the impression the dog was levitating, because I'm certainly missing it.

They miss the pattern difference in the tile so can't see the ledge, and mistake the hanging clothes shadow for the dog's.
