Everybody needs their beauty sleep.

An old, tired-looking dog wandered into my yard. I could from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home. He then followed me into my house, down my hall, and went to asleep for about an hour. After his nap, he walked out of the house and went on his way.

The next day he returned and did the same thing. On the third day of doing this, I attached a note to his collar that said, "every afternoon, your dog comes to my house to take a nap."

The day after, when the dog returned, he had another note attached to his collar. It said, "he lives in a home with four kids. He's just trying to catch up on his sleep. Can I come with him tomorrow?"
