Mighty Dog Explores Chestnut Hill for Ghosts”
Pixie Schmidt, paranormal research specialist for Ghost Tours of America, explored Chestnut Hill on Friday evening September 24 in preparation for the new Ghost Tours of Chestnut Hill.

According to her owners, Peggy and Bruce Schmidt, Pixie pointed out several locations that had paranormal activity.  But the most unusual response was at the Chestnut Hill Hotel.  Pixie marched up the stairs and refused to leave the location.  Taking this as a sign, pictures were taken of the hotel and sure enough orbs were identified in the digital photographs.  For further confirmation the Ghost Tour Research team did confirm that there has been paranormal activity in the Hotel and Chestnut Grill.

Pixie talents have been featured in a web series on AnimalPlanet.com under “Small Dogs, Big Jobs”.  She also will be featured this October as Purina’s Mighty Dog of the month.
