Strange dream...

Odd to wake myself up thus: I was, in the dream, walking in the forest in the evening - I think on a trail in Stanley Park. There were different people with dogs also on the trail, and I stopped to pet one. Later, I was chatting with a woman with a particularly handsome, big dog of a breed I cannot determine - perhaps part Rottweiler, but very friendly. I was sitting on a bench. Suddenly the dog began to whimper and ran behind the bench, apparently afraid of something approaching through the forest. Rather than feeling fear myself, I chose to mock the dog, making a whimpering sound myself, loud in my throat. I'm not sure if I actually made a sound as I slept, but the sensation was enough to wake me. Just as well - whatever was coming through the forest couldn't have been good.
