We have a small yappy dog, a terrier. It has no hands. It cannot reach the door knob even if it did. These are important details for what follows.

It's midnight and my son is up gaming and social media-ing. It's just him and the dog. The dog keeps looking at something inside and outside the house and growling or whining at it. Son lets the dog out. Let's dog in. Dog is still seeing something on the wall, by the dresser, in the yard...and son cannot see it and is getting a little freaked out.

He spends some time in his room on facebook and Youtube, comes out to check on the dog who he left sitting out there staring at the wall near the couch.

And the dog is outside in the yard, looking back at him through the glass.

He did not let the dog out. Everyone else was asleep.

Who let the dog out?(less)
