An old, tired-looking dog wandered into a man’s yard. He could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home and was well taken care of.

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

An hour later, he went to the door, and the man let him out.

The next day he was back, greeted the man in his 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 one day, the man 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 six children, two under the age of three – he’s trying to catch up on his sleep. Can I come with him tomorrow?”
