Ahhh.........

 
 
An older, tired-looking dog wandered into my yard.
I could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home an
d 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?'

 
 
 
Andrea in Germany sent this - and I simply had to share.
How I love old dogs - they are so sweet, special and touching.
Thanks for sharing, Andrea!
