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?"


  1. This is hilarious! I've felt like that dog, especially when my kids were small. To show my gullibility, is it true or a joke?

  2. I'm with the dog---where can I go for an hour a day nap??

  3. The email said it was a true story, but you know how those go. Can't say for sure.
