old tired dog

One Tired Dog

An older, tired-looking dog, wandered into my yard one day. 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 and I gave him a few pats on his head. Then he 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 decided to pin a note to his collar which read:

”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, and heʼs trying to catch up on his sleep. Can I come with him tomorrow?”


This is really a cute and awesome story, believed to be true. We can all sympathize with this sweet, old dog… and the mother of six.
