The Monster Mystery solved

Yesterday, J.P. posted about his excitement. 
A photo he took revealed a "monster" behind our house.

You probably cannot see it right away, 
it is just a pattern the snow created on the trees.
This photo kicked my brain into gear 
and I immediately thought 
"this is not a monster, this is a ghost-dog's face.

It is similar to recognizing "faces" on a social platform. 
You get that question: "Is this XX?", just because their face detection tool 
finds similarities in a photo online.
Could this be Molly's face? 

No, it could not be Molly, she is still alive. 
She is not a ghost.

While I was contemplating the vision 
my brain picked out the right photo.

It must be Peter's Norwegian sled-dog Liisa! 

Liisa was 13 years old when she went to her eternal playgrounds.
J.P. and Liisa (Norway,1984)
Here - I drew a few lines to make it easier for you 
to detect the "face".
Maybe her ghost came to us for a short visit?
Maybe it is just nature playing a trick on us?

J.P. war gestern ganz aufgeregt weil er auf einem Photo 
ein Monster in unserem Garten entdeckt hatte! 
Mir sah das allerding nicht nach Monster aus, eher nach einem 
Hundegesicht. Es konnte nicht Molly sein, sie ist kein Geist.
Aber vielleicht einer unsere anderen Hunde?
Sogleich viel mir dieses Photo ein: J.P. mit Liisa in Norwegen!
Wenn man die Konturen mit ein paar Linien nachzeichnet kann
man es vielleicht besser sehen.
Vielleicht hat sie uns besuchen wollen?
Oder es ist einfach nur ein Trick der Natur?
Wer weiss das schon.


  1. Not knowing about Liisa had I commented that it looked like Molly. I do agree people do see things different then others.
    Be safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. I saw it right away also. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Have a Happy New Year too.

    1. Thank you, Betty and Joe. I hope there will be change to the better for you two as well!

  3. That is so true. Has to, because everyone has a different set of memory photos stored in his/her brain. Sometimes people even "see" a woman on Mars. Just because the rock formation tricks our brain us to SEE what is not there. :)
