A Ghost Dog?

About once every month, our Golden Retriever has a night where she just can’t sleep and appears to be stressed out.  Usually what happens is we go to bed, then a few hours later, she is scratching at our door urgently. We take her out, tell her to go to sleep and see what happens.  Usually she wonders around the house making a bunch of noise on the hardwood floors, wondering from each door to our bedroom.  We have two, so she paces back and forth.  Then she urgently scratches on our door again.

Usually by now we are both awake, and I take her out and walk her for what seems like an hour, but is probably more like 10 minutes.   Then she seems to be calmer, but it never fails, 5 or 10 minutes go by, then another urgent scratch scratch.  By now we have no choice but to bring her into the room with us.  She is loud sleeper, so this is our last resort.

This whole pattern happened again last night.  We don’t know what it is that freaks her out, but apparently she just needed to be near us.  We are left wondering if there is a ghost dog terrorizing her in the middle of the night.   She is a 10 year old dog, who has never slept in our room, so it’s not like we are breaking a habit.
