Obscura Society NY: "Psychic Dogs" Lecture with Paul Koudounaris

Hear the fascinating history of canine ESP at this lecture for dogs and humans.

What is your dog trying to tell you? Maybe more than you know. Throughout history, there have been undeniable cases of unexplained or psychic phenomena involving dogs. These are the genuine and verified occurrences that make you question how we communicate and perceive knowledge.

Join award winning author and occult historian Paul Koudounaris to investigate these phenomena at this dog-friendly lecture which explores the most mystical slice of canine history, accompanied by slideshow images. Learn about Kurwenal, from Weimar, Germany, history's most eloquent dog. Or Jim the Wonder Dog from Missouri, who could even answer questions in Morse Code. How and why do some some dogs attain these powers? Is it true that some dogs can even reappear as ghosts or communicate from beyond the grave? Well, OK, we can't really answer these questions--but we can give you specific case histories and present theories on them so that you can draw your own conclusions. All-in-all, this lecture will be a strange but riveting journey through canine history.
