The hotelmanager and the dog
This is an unknown hotel manager's reply to a vacationer writing to ask if dogs were permitted:
"I've been in the hotel business over thirty years. Never yet have I called the police to eject a disorderly dog during the small hours of the night. Never yet has a dog set the bedclothes afire from smoking a cigarette. I've never found a hotel towel or blanket in a dog's suitcase, nor whiskey rings on the bureau top from a dog's bottle. Sure the dog's welcome.
P.S. If he'll vouch for you, come along too."
