Pets run away from their homes for all kinds of reasons. They might be frightened, overly curious, or even abused. But it’s almost unheard of for a dog to do anything quite like the one in this particular story!
Recently, a woman was sitting at home one day and minding her own business when a dog suddenly appeared. He looked well-fed and he didn’t seem like a threat, so she began to pet him.
Then, he followed her into the house. The woman decided to retell the story herself, and the more of it you read, the bigger your smile will become!
An old dog approached a woman’s home one day and what happened next was too good not to share. “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,” the woman began. From there, her story only got more and more adorable…
“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,” she continued. “An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out.”
“The very next day, he came 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,” the woman recounted. Just what was this doggy up to?
That’s when the woman had an idea. “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 woman was shocked at what she found next. “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?’”
flickrHa! It looks like parents aren’t the only ones who are being kept up by young children. This ol’ pooch is definitely lucky he’s so cute and he can just wander into a stranger’s home like that!
