SuziQuzie - This one is for you!

Great Story
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?'

Blessed are the surprising and simple moments.

How lovely.
And lovely of you to give a little respite to the much needed.

You see, this is why we don't have a dog and gave up the cat, and I've only got 3!!!
That was good, thank you!!!

This is really cute! It reminds me of when we go to visit my mom - after a few hours the critters are all looking for a quiet place to sleep.

I have tow labs - Very boysterous boys they are - When we have company, when my Black Lab just goes in his crate and lays down, when he's had enough.

What a great story! We have a neighbor cat that takes naps on our porch and the neighbors say that our cats "call on" each other to come out and play. Animals know when they need rest and/or recreation.

Too funny, great story! Our dogs are that way sometimes, you can just see it in their faces they are worn out by the kids and just want a quiet place to take a nap!
