Ghost hunting dog joins reality show TAPS

Maddie, the newest member of the TAPS "Ghost Hunters" is a dog that is specially trained in hunting for ghosts and as she joins the crew this week at the Alex Johnson hotel, she proves she is a viable member of the team.

A new ghost hunting dog, Maddie, joins the cast of "Ghost Hunters" this week at the Alex Johnson Hotel. This dog, which is trained to hunt ghosts, senses things that are there and cannot be seen. As the newest member of the TAPS "Ghost Hunters" cast, Maddie has senses that are so much better than humans and proves to be a great asset in alerting the team when she feels a ghostly presence around.

The hotel that they visit has had so many ghostly occurrences, that workman have left the hotel and would not come back. Maddie makes her debut at this hotel and proves to be a new viable member as she does act up as she senses things that cannot be seen. The team investigates growling sounds that come out of a crawl space in the ceiling. In room 812, the most active room for paranormal occurrences, two of the team members kept getting touched on their head. The EMF readings spike high in the area they feel someone touching them. This hotel looks like it is haunted, as they also catch a lot of evidence on film.

What the different is with this show, "Ghost Hunters," is that the TAPS team actually set out to disprove, or debunk claims being made that a place is haunted. They try to recreate the occurrences that people are reporting as a haunting and explain it with something of a scientific nature instead of the paranormal. This doesn't always work and it looks like the Alex Johnson Hotel is one of these places to really have paranormal activity going on.

The "Ghost Hunters" catch images, voices and movements at this hotel that cannot be explained from any other natural source. This is a frequent occurrence with this show, paranormal activity is alive and well today in many of the locations that this show has visited. Now with Maddie, the dog, on board, she might be able to lead them in the right direction more quickly than it takes to explore the entire building they are investigating.

Jason Hawes created The Atlantic Paranormal Society, or TAPS, with friend and fellow plumber Grant Wilson. While Jason has never revealed what his personal paranormal experience was that prompted him to start investigating haunting, it was vivid enough to make him a believer. Both Jason and Grant are part of a small, blue-collar Rhode Island community which is the same place that many of the TAPS members were born and raised.

His own highly personal paranormal experience made him set out to discover all he could about the after-world. These experiences in the form of ghost hunting, are shown in a reality show on the Sci-Fi Network. The show "Ghost Hunters" has single handed changed many peoples opinion on ghosts.

One of the biggest pieces of evidence ever caught on film that would point to ghosts as being the real thing, happened during their investigation at a light house. This is when the camera actually picked up a chair moving on its own. Their investigations have turned up recording voices, things moving on their own, as well as ghostly apparitions.

I've nothing against dogs even though they will say this one is specially trained which is nothing but bunk because anyone with an once of intelligence will know that most animals including dogs already have a higher level of sensitivity with regards to their immediate environment. It would seem that the producers behind Ghost Hunters will continue promoting forth new gimmicks in their bid to avoid cancellation when what this show really needs is an episode involving a priest giving both its cast-crew-and production team its last rights so it may be added to all those before it in perpetual syndication. Syfy has longed milked this topic for all its worth. Now that it has others on its roster such as Haunted Collector it is high time that Jason and Grant be headed for their final curtain call and into the sunset forever more where they're next haunting may be such sites as NetFlix. But knowing Syfy don't count on it. They won't go down until they at least assault our intelligence further by producing Ghost Hunter - The Movie!

Are you serious. Look, I don't get u guys, you never have anything. I've watched ur show many times, even the live halloween broadcast; what is going on? All I get from ur "ghost hunt" is maybe something u may see or vocal slurs that u all put words to and now u have a trained ghost hunting dog, give me a freak'n break. Look, when I was 21 my parents rented this manson in Baltimore till our house was done. The rent vwas only $500.month for a huge manson on 60 acres w. Lawncare people added, even a maid (my mom refused the maid unfortunately). We asked why so low priced rent, then the broker replied, "It is haunted"; my reply whatever!. So, we lived in this manson for 1&1/2 years; In this time I have experienced amazing things. Now, I never ever believed in ghost not even angels, I was like "Bullshit!" This is what I experienced, not in one night, throughout, but, throughout the 1&1/2. I took my non-ghost hunting dog out for a walk around some of the grounds, when I saw this dark shadow figure of a man holding his hat and briefcase against a fearce wind; (*note: it was a calm sunny day) crossing my path then he just disappeared. My dog was so fixed on this shadow and cried loudly the whole time he passed us, shaking violently. When I went in the house, my sister said, "Did u see that?", I said "What?", she stated that she saw exactly what I saw. There was a time when my sister & I were by ourselves on New Years. My sister went out to get party stuff. Whlie she was gone I looked out the window and saw this old model-t ford coming up the road (*note: the only entrance & exit to our place) then stopped in the back of our house; inwhich, two women in flapper outfits & two guys in black tuxedos & tails; along with two beautiful afgan dogs, proceed to exit the vehicle. They went down a small path for only 2 minutes, they returned then re-entered the car & drove back down the road toward exiting the property. A second later my sister came up the road. When she got out of the car, I came down to help her with the food and asked her, excitedly, what she thought of the people in the party outfits. My sister replied to my question with, "What people?". She proceeded to tell me she saw no one entering the property, nor did she pass anyone on the way up; she had to have seen them! There was no one there. Then there was the dog that kept distracting my dog's puppies from peeing. I was taking the pups out to pee, when a dog came up to us making my pups pull on their leashes & whimper, trying to sniff this dog. To no avail I took my pups back in the house & told my mom, "I have to shoo this dog away before I can take them back out to finish peeing". I went back out, the dog was still there by a fence. I knelt down to pet it when I realized it glowed; plus, you could see the fence & grass through it. I was talking to it trying to get closer, then just when I got close enough to pet it, it turned toward the fence & jumped through one of the boards in the fence but did not go out the other end onto the field; it just disappeared into the fence. There were time when I was by myself & could hear a party going on in the living room. People were talking (really talking) & I could smell cigar smoke & hear music (it was old time music). These are but a few highlights of what I experienced. Now remember this was thoughout a 1& 1/2, not in one night, like you all preceive. Oh, and my dogs didn't even have to be trained to hunt ghost; I guess they were just naturals.
