Upon entering a little country store, a stranger noticed a sign reading, “Danger Beware of Dog” posted on the glass door. Inside, he noticed a harmless old hound dog asleep on the floor besides the cash register.

The stranger asked the store manager (sarcastically), “Is that the dog folks are supposed to beware of?” “Yep, that’s him,” he replied (oblivious to the stranger’s tone). The stranger couldn’t help but be amused. “That certainly doesn’t look like a dangerous dog to me. Why in the world would you post that sign?” “Because,” the owner replied, “before I posted that sign, people kept tripping over him.”

Have you ever felt like the poor household dog? Old, sleepy, and traumatized by outsiders, footsteps, and boots?
