Dog vs. Ghost

Questions from the audience:
When a dog sees a ghost, it will howl more than bark.  What does it feel?  When a dog howls, the other dogs always howl following it.  What signal do they send?

When a dog sees a ghost, it will howl more than bark because it fears and is frightened.  The ghost has some unseen things that make a dog fear.  It is similar to a man seeing a ghost.
The dog can not talk the human language, so it talks the dog language.  The periodic howling is the dog’s warning signal which means it is seeing an unknown frightening thing.
