Friend Lucy wrote a letter to a small hotel she planned to visit on her vacation.
She wrote: My husband Joe and I would very much like to bring our dog Spunky with us.
He is well-groomed and very well behaved.
Would you be willing to permit us to keep him in the room at night?"
An immediate reply came from the hotel owner, who wrote:
MAM: "I've been operating this hotel for many years. In all that time, I've never had a dog steal towels, bedclothes, silverware or pictures off the walls.
I've never had to evict a dog in the middle of the night for being drunk and disorderly.
And I've never had a dog run out on a hotel bill.
Yes, indeed, your dog is welcome at my hotel.
And, if your dog will vouch for you & Joe, you're welcome to stay here, too."
We had a family cat up until I was about 5 yrs old. Tom (I’ll bet there were millions of Toms’) was a roaming cat. Sometimes inside sometimes out. He got some scraps off the table, but mostly he lived off bugs and mice. I think back then most cats did. He would let me hold him and listen to his ‘motor’, well the purring sounded like that to me.
(He is about to get annoyed)
We moved 30 or 40 miles away to a country church and took Tom with us. Upon our arrival I turned him loose and he immediately ran away. It was months before I saw Tom again. He had made his way back to the home he had known, and there he stayed.
(I guess that is the only picture of Bingo)
We also had a dog, Bingo. Loved that dog. She was a mixed breed mostly Terrier dad said. Dogs don’t have a motor, but they are still fun to hold close to you. There is nothing like a pet. They comfort when no one else understands. Bingo got real sick and Dad had to put her down.
Then my aunt Anne Mae gave me a Cocker Spaniel, I named him Ace. My best friend ever. Beagles like to chase rabbits, Spaniels love to chase anything with wings, Chickens were Ace’s bird of choice. So I had to keep an eye on him. He was poisoned by a neighbor, I hated that man for years.
Casco was the last dog that was mine. He also was a Cocker.
If you need a friend, pick a dog. they won’t run away and will love you even at the worst of times. I cannot say that for a cat. I admire the cat’s independence, but they ain’t gonna do a lot of loving. At least that is my experience. LOL
(and you will get tired of playing before the dog)
Thanks for stopping by.
You can do something real stupid and your dog will still think you are the BEST!
The first thing I thought of when I saw this picture was, “I hope the dog driving the white taxi notices the lady in Blue and stops!” What did you see?
