A couple from Tennessee were recently stunned to wake up to find a big, soft and cuddly dog curled up next to them in their bed.
Jimmy Johnson turned around and asked his wife, “Julie, whose dog is that?”
The Johnsons have three large dogs, who usually share their king-size bed with them. But this time, a mysterious beige dog was sprawled on their mattress.
Once they realized the dog wasn’t a threat, the couple took photos and posted them on Facebook to track down its owners.
“This is the weirdest message I’ve ever had to make,” wrote Julie Johnson. “Is this your dog?”
According to an ‘update’ posted by Julie, the dog, whose name is Nala, escaped from his owners during a walk just before a thunderstorm. Apparently, Nala snuck through a loose door in the Johnsons’ house to find a safe, warm place to wait. The Johnsons’ dogs didn’t even make a fuss when she jumped into their bed.
Nala eventually reunited with her parents and became a media superstar. However, his owners are a little embarrassed by their dog’s lack of boundaries.
“Our overly friendly pup, Nala, has reached an all-time high for ignoring personal space and added another trick to her long list of Houdini acts,” wrote Cris Hawkins, one of Nala’s owners, on Facebook.
“Shame [on] Nala for somehow breaking into a stranger’s house and invading their personal space,” Hawkins added. “Luckily the couple thought it was hilarious and they’re not even mad about it.”
