Couple unknowingly ‘snuggled’ with stranger’s dog all night: ‘This is not our dog’

A couple had no idea they were snuggling a stranger in their bed the whole night. 

Julie Thornton Johnson and Jimmy Johnson have dogs of their own. It’s why they were amused and stunned to discover the canine they had been cuddling all night was not one of their own. Julie shared the hilarious incident in a Facebook post. 

“It is absolutely normal to wake up in our house with one of OUR dogs in the bed with us,” the post read. “One small problem: THIS IS NOT OUR DOG, nor do we know how she got in our house.” 

The couple thought they were snuggling with one of their dogs “in pitch darkness.” 

“As daylight began to creep in through our curtains, we realized we were snuggling with someone else’s dog,” Julie wrote

“Maybe your dogs have been bragging to the neighborhood how good they got it,” someone commented

“How did it get in the house? Which dog let it in?” another wrote

“They always say the best dogs find you. This might be the best dog ever,” a person said

A “pupdate” was added to the post later on. The couple was able to track down the pet owner, who agreed to retrieve the dog, whose name is Nala. 

“Good luck getting her out of my bed, ma’am,” Julie joked in the update. 

The pet owner also had some fun roasting her own dogs in the comment section. 

“What’s even weirder is that none of my dogs even mind [that] she is in the bed,” Julie wrote. “What kind of guard dogs are they? Did they open the door for her? Cook her dinner? And invite her over for a sleepover with their parent’s permission?”
