I'm a big fan of dogs too mate and must be pretty traumatic to have your beloved pooch zapped by a UFO - especially when it just flies away and you have no idea what it was. Think you're on the right track about microwaves and given enough time and funding then who knows what's possible - recently saw a Russian report claiming they've created a beam which causes people to hallucinate (don't know how true that is though). Lots of strange rescue dog behaviour reported by handlers in the Missing411 reports as well so it really does make a person wonder WTD is going on. Always found the 1952 Flatwoods case a real intriguing one and the vid below describes a large, rounded, black object (pulsating cherry red and pale orange) which was observed by several witnesses on the top of a hill, did find it relevant that it's stated two police dogs refused to go up it the day afterwards. There's also claims of missing metal and liquid samples and Michael Swords has made a great blogpost below about restricted documents involving the Pentagon and DSI giving 'utmost priority' to the lab analysis of the subject samples. The Big Study: Peeking at Ivan's SITU files: the Flatwoods Monster. Cheers.
