The outback hotel

A man wrote a letter to a small hotel in an outback town which he planned to visit on his vacation.

He wrote : “I would very much like to bring my dog with me. He is well groomed and very well behaved. Would you be willing to permit me to keep him in my room with me at night?”

An immediate reply came from the hotel owner, who wrote:

“I’ve been operating this hotel for many years. In all that time, I’ve never had a dog steal towels, bed clothes, silverware or steal pictures off the walls or use them as a colouring book. I’ve never had to evict a dog in the middle of the night for being drunk and disorderly. And I’ve never had a dog run out on a hotel bill. Yes, indeed, your dog is welcome at my hotel. And, if your dog will vouch for you, you’re welcome to stay here, too.”
