    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?'

    Growing up in a family of 11 children I think our dog, Scamp, could have related to that one.:)

    No. It was a joke I received and passed along.

    The picture however I can take some credit for - at least for knowing where it came from. The dog is named Blush and she belongs to a good friend. In this picture she was doped up to relax her to accommodate a hip radiograph - you can see by the look on her face that drugs did wonders! The good news I just received today is that her hips passed with Excellent rating and coupled with her other positive health screens, she can now enter the whelping box :)

    good chuckle for the day. I do have a real story of two dogs that come to my patio door every morning and whine and lay there until I let them in. They each get a treat and stay for awhile then whine to be let out and head home.
