My Owner is Welcome, Too!

Dogs Welcome

A man wrote a letter to a small hotel in a
town he planned to visit on his vacation. 

He wrote: I would very much like to bring my dog with me.
He is well-groomed and very well behaved. Would you be
willing to permit me to keep him in my room with me at night?"

An immediate reply came from the hotel owner, who wrote: 

SIR: "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,
 you're welcome to stay here, too."
