Couple thinks dog literally rose from the ashes

CENTENNIAL - The Nichalsons don't expect you to believe something beyond the laws of physics is at work on their backyard patio.
But they do want you to know that the image that has now appeared on their grill cover certainly does look a lot like their old dog Fletcher.
"It's very freaky," Steve Nicholson said. "It is a little spooky."
"Yep, we've joined the club," his wife Peggy added with a smile.
She's referring to the seemingly endless parade of images that have been appearing on rather normal things in recent years (or at least as long as the internet has been around).
Go ahead. Google "George Bush on a piece of toast." Or "Elvis on a rock." Or "Virgin Mary on a grilled cheese."
Who knows? Maybe one day soon you will be able to Google "Fletcher on a grill cover" and see what has come to the attention of the Nichalsons as of late.
Here's the story. Fletcher was the couple's chocolate Lab. When he was 13, a vet told them the dog needed to be put to sleep.
"We had to pick a day, because he was really starting to suffer," said Peggy. "We were just so sad about having to do that."
That was a few years ago.
Over time the couple's memories of Fletcher started to fade. They even decided to get another Lab. His name is Bodie.
