Dog Story

I found this in my mailbox this morning and had to post. Hope this makes you smile!
Thanks Cathy!
~~~~~~~~

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?'

Gail,
I have to tell you, I opened up the blog, and saw the dog, and didn't notice the different color than ROxy, and right away, I thought this can't be Roxy, then I read the story! Very cute! I love your blogging, and I hope the hats work out for you. You can keep them til you are done with them, I think you will need them through the summer. Had a good time tonight, talk to you soon!Connie
