Hump Day Humor

Photo, uncredited, was attached to an email.

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?'

Ha ha! Okay - not to sound like the tired, frazzled, brain-dead mom of four that I am...but was this an email forward? Or did this really happen?

either way - too funny.

I’m playing catch up today … reading through ‘missed posts’ in my ‘reader’ … and had to stop here just because. This made me laugh aloud … and I love the image you’ve paired with the story. I enjoyed the Opening Ceremonies pictures and the topiary post too. Your August 8th Sky Watch photos are awesome, and I’m glad you’ve finally found someone closer to ‘home’ to cut your hair! I drive about 35 minutes to get mine done, but being ‘happily retired’ … it’s no big deal.
Hugs and blessings,
