A man decided to go away for the weekend with his dog. However, he noticed that none of the hotels said if they were pet-friendly or not. So, being polite, he decided to write a letter to the small hotel he planned to visit.
“I would very much like to bring my dog with me,” he wrote. “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 said, “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 pictures off the walls. 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.”
