A young girl is left home alone with only her dog to protect her. When night approaches, she locks all the doors and tries to lock all the windows, but one won’t close. She decides to leave it unlocked and goes to bed. Her dog takes its customary place under her bed.

In the deep of night she awakens to a dripping sound coming from the bathroom. The girl is too scared to go check so she reaches her hand under the bed. She feels a reassuring lick from her dog and falls back to sleep. She reawakens to the dripping sound, reaches her hand down to the dog where she feels the reassuring lick and falls back to sleep. Once more she awakens to the dripping sound. She reaches her hand down and feels the lick of her dog.

Now curious about the dripping sound, she gets up and slowly walks towards the bathroom, the dripping sound getting louder as she approaches. She reaches the bathroom and turns on the light. She is greeted by a horrific sight; hanging from the shower nozzle is her dog, with its throat slit open and its blood dripping into the bathtub.

Something on the bathroom mirror catches her eye she turns around. Written on the bathroom mirror in her dog’s blood are the words “HUMANS CAN LICK TOO”.


I remember reading a version of this when I was in grade school, except I think the girl was at a slumber party and the murderer killed all the girls except her (why he spared just her, who knows). It freaked me out for days, and I didn’t even have a dog at the time! So for the sake of nostalgia, here you go. Thanks go out to the person who emailed this to me.

      I think that a dogs lick would feel different and that girl is so stupid if she cant tell the difference!

        Well yeah, it’d feel different-
        But honestly if the girl is super young a wet tongue is a wet tongue. She may not be able to tell.

        Well, let me think. My dog has a wet tongue and sleeps under my bed.I wake up in the middle of the night and something under the bed licks my hand with a wet tongue. It must be a human. Its common sense. Normal people always lick peoples hands.(Yes, this was sarcastic.)

    I’ve always loved this creppypasta, but the end sentence in this sort of ruins the mood.
    I think you should take it off to keep us wondering what was under the bed.

      Have you never read this urban legend before? I remember my sister telling me the story when I was in kindergarten, and it freaked me out then. It’s what got me into urban legends. The end line is there to add to the creepiness, because deep down everyone has a fear of being murdered in their own home, and it brings you back to the childhood memory of the monster under the bed, only the monster isn’t the stereotypical kind. The monster is the real life kind: humans.

    Dumb bitch couldn’t even tell the difference between me and some human. WTF?

    It’s not like the facial structure and tongue are completely different, is it?

    Nah, this one is a classic. Silly, but a classic. I still like the version where the dog barks from outside while she’s still got her hand down getting licked, though. Leaves on a slightly more horrifying note.

    This one I have heard before and it is a classic. It’s more silly then scary though but if I was a little kid I would say it would be scary.

    Slumber party nostalgia. It never makes for good creepy. However, it is a classic.

        nostalgia, to have a positive feeling because of something that reminds you of a situation you were in, or something you remember. hope that makes sense to someone other than me :3

    Dude…I read this one in I think …Teen magazine when I was something like 15. Scared me for life, along with the “There were no foot prints in the snow. It was his reflection” one.

    I’ve never quite gotten that “There were no foot prints in the snow. It was his reflection” one. It’s such a difficult mistake to make.

    I believe the slumber party one is where the girl is left alive because it’s her birthday; written on the wall with what is presumably the other girls blood is something like “Happy Birthday from your local psychopath”.

    I love the last sentence, when I first read this a while ago, I shuddered and a chill went down my spine.

    This is much better written than the other version I read – there’s also one about a blind woman. She calls her nephew over to sort the dripping out, and he discovers the mauled dog.

    I agree with comment #14!

    I hate to point this out, but it says “Something on the bathroom mirror catches her eye she turns around”.
    I didn’t notice it the first time.

  • LALALALALA…. THE DEVIL!!

    Ahah, my friend told me this story before
    Except like she added some little details in, about how the girl had just moved into a new house and she got a whole floor to herself, including the bathroom, but she didn’t like the bathroom so she went and used her parents… And since she was so afraid her parents got her a dog
    And supposedly, the dripping went on for like a week…
    And the face that she told me that it was a real story and I was seven freaked me out too
    xD

    When I first heard this story when I was a kid it scared the every living shit out of me. To be honest, it still kinda has that effect.

    I’ve heard one where the girl is babysitting two kids and the dog and the murderer got the three and left the sitter, and the note said “Not only a dog can lick your hand at night” O_o
