Dog Doesn’t Leave the Baby Alone for This Chilling Reason

Phillip and Margaret were living the American Dream with a big house, a picket fence, a cute dog, and a beautiful baby girl. Or so they thought. Their dog Butch was a rescue, and while things seemed normal at first, Butch’s behavior changed drastically after baby Caroline was born. He never left Caroline’s side, and often seemed on edge.

Was Butch sensing danger? Was Caroline at risk? Phillip and Margaret would soon investigate, and wouldn’t be prepared for what they would find.

Phillip and Maggie were fast asleep in their bed, until Butch, their dog began barking wildly from the baby’s room, eventually waking up the whole neighborhood. What started out as a simple bark suddenly turned into a story that moved the whole nation.

Who was Phillip?


Phillip Blake was a troublesome kid. His parents quickly decided to put him in military school. When he turned eighteen years old, he joined the military and began traveling the world.

Who was Maggie?


Margaret Tanner, commonly known as Maggie, was adored by everyone she crossed paths with. She was raised in rural America. Oklahoma to be exact. Everyone knew that Maggie was destined for bigger things. She loved pottery and dreamed of having her own business. For this to happen, she needed to move to the big city.

Call the police!
