"Dogs  Welcome"

A man wrote a letter to a small hotel in a Midwest
  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 steal pictures off the walls 
  or use them as a coloring book.
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."
