Substantiation of this Report is minimal, at best; excepting only the eyewitness accounts of my guests who saw the creature outside the kitchen window, and various historical encounters across northern Michigan.[1] Although I have not found any specific DM reports for Charlevoix County,[2] the 2009 Harbour Springs encounter took place only thirty-five miles (35mi, or 56.327km) from this location.[3]

The combination of physical, visual, audible and/or olfactory events described in this Report are as follows:

  1. The visual sighting of a large, dark shadow with a dog-like shape, outside my kitchen;
  2. The sound of bipaedal footsteps across my back porch;
  3. The visual sighting of a large, dog-like creature outside my bedroom window, standing on its hind legs;
  4. The continued presence of said creature in my garden, throughout the night;
  5. The curious lack of footprints in the garden the next morning.

Based upon these behaviours, it is reasonable to suggest the presence of DM[4] in Charlevoix in January, 2011; I returned to Chicago a few months later, and have not returned to the house since then.

A number of subjective events also occurred. While these cannot be considered conclusive evidence, neither should they be discounted. Although it is reasonable to review the impact of non-objective stimuli in this Report, such effects, while personally quite vivid and at times overwhelming, are nonetheless nearly impossible to substantiate with any measure of certainly.
