LET SLEEPING DOGS LIE
« on: October 21, 2008, 05:42:19 pm »
I just had to share this one..

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie
======================

An older, tired-looking dog wandered into my yard; I could tell
from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home and was
well taken care of.

He calmly came over to me, I gave him a few pats on his head;
he then followed me into my house, slowly walked down the hall,
curled up in the corner and fell asleep.

An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out. The next
day he was back, greeted me in my yard, walked inside and
resumed his spot in the hall and again slept for about an hour.
This continued off and on for several weeks.

Curious, I pinned a note to his collar: "I would like to find
out who the owner of this wonderful sweet dog is and ask if you
are aware that almost every afternoon your dog comes to my
house for a nap."

The next day he arrived for his nap, with a different note
pinned to his collar: "He lives in a home with 6 children, 2
under the age of 3 - he's trying to catch up on his sleep.
Can I come with him tomorrow?"

Was this a yellow Lab? If so, he must have been my daughters dog  :-* 6 kids in their house :o and I literally have to wade through the kids to get to the dogs! When I try to leave, the two labs run to the back of my car--and try to jump in.  ;D SERIOUSLY!  ;D
