Friendship improves happiness and relieves misery by the doubling of our joy and the dividing of our grief.

A few weeks ago 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 the head....he then followed me into my house, slowly walked down the hall and 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 returned to the spot in the hall and again slept for about an hour. This continued off and on for about two weeks Curious, I pinned a note to his collar, "I would like to find out who is the owner of this wonderful dog is and to ask you 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?"
