A Tennessee couple woke up to find a dog in their bed. Much to their surprise, they soon realized the dog did not belong to them.
The couple own three dogs, so its not unusual for them to wake up with a dog or two in their bed. Nothing seemed amiss when they woke up Sunday, May 1 with a dog in their bed, but they soon realized that it was not one of their own.
Julie and Jimmy Johnson of Ocoee, Tennessee immediately posted on their Facebook page.
“This is the weirdest post I have ever had to make. Is this your dog?” Julie Johnson wrote on Facebook.
“It is absolutely normal to wake up in our house with one of OUR dogs in the bed with us,” she wrote on Facebook alongside photos of the mystery dog. One small problem, THIS IS NOT OUR DOG, nor do we know how she got in our house. At first, we thought it was one of ours, but they rarely lay on the pillows! In pitch darkness, I just assumed it was. Wouldn’t we all? As daylight began to creep in through our curtains we realized we were snuggling with someone else’s dog.”
The couple thinks the back door was left open by accident and their new fur roommate just helped herself right inside.
After their post on Facebook went viral, someone recognized the dog named Nala.
"We got a Facebook message saying, 'Hey, that's my dog. I'll be there in a few minutes, what's your address?'" Johnson said.
She verified it was actually the woman's dog by asking for photos as proof.
"She sent me Christmas pictures and all sorts of photos with her dogs."
Johnson found out Nala traveled almost two miles and the adventure eventually ended when the dog wanted some company.
"As a matter of fact, I was still laying in bed and snuggling with Nala when her mom walked into the room," Jimmy Johnson said.
