Old, tired dog



An old, tired-looking dog wandered into the yard. I could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home. He followed me into the house, down the hall, and fell asleep in a corner.

An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out. The next day he was back, resumed his position in the hall, and slept for an hour. This continued for several weeks. Curious, I pinned a note to his collar: "Every afternoon your dog comes to my house for a nap."

The next day he arrived with a different note pinned to his collar: "He lives in a home with ten children -- he's trying to catch up on his sleep. Can I come with him tomorrow?"

that is a good story.
Remember those who died for your freedom.

Dear Lord, lest I continue in my complacent ways, help me to remember that someone died for me today. And if there be war, help me to remember to ask and to answer “am I worth dying for?”~

I absolutely do, Sarge. Lots of them were my 'kin.' I'll be wearing my red/white/blue all weekend, and my flag has been displayed already:-) Oh yes, I am a patriot!

Love this story, Sandy!! Is it true? I do hope it's true!!

I have a cat that comes to my office every day. She has a very good home, right across the street... with 3 puppies; a Pappion, a Dachshund and a Georgia Bull dog! No wonder she comes to my office!

I hope Sarge likes my post for Manic Monday! I knew exactly what I was posting about before I even saw the prompt.
