Dogs and Cats

This year
All years
A newly discovered chapter in the Book of Genesis has
provided the answer to "Where do pets come from?"
Adam said, "Lord, when I was in the garden, you walked with
me everyday. Now I do not see you anymore. I am lonesome
here & it is difficult for me to remember how much you
love me."

And God said, "No problem! I will create a companion for
you that will be with you forever & who will be a reflection
of my love for you, so that you will love me even when you
cannot see me. Regardless of how selfish or childish or
unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you
as you are & will love you as I do, in spite of yourself."

And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam.
And it was a good animal. And God was pleased. And the new
animal was pleased to be with Adam & he wagged his tail.
And Adam said, "Lord, I have already named all the animals
in the Kingdom & I cannot think of a name for this new

And God said, " Because I have created this new animal to
be a reflection of my love for you, his name will be a
reflection of my own name, and you will call him DOG."

And Dog lived with Adam & was a companion to him & loved
him. And Adam was comforted. And God was pleased. And
Dog was content & wagged his tail.

After a while, it came to pass that Adam's guardian angel
came to the Lord & said, "Lord, Adam has become filled with
pride. He struts & preens like a peacock & he believes he
is worthy of adoration. Dog has indeed taught him that he
is loved, but perhaps too well."

And the Lord said, "I will create for him a companion who
will be with him forever & who will see him as he is. The
companion will remind him of his limitations, so he will
know that he is not always worthy of adoration."

And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam. And Cat
would not obey Adam. And when Adam gazed into Cat's eyes,
he was reminded that he was not the supreme being. And Adam
learned humility.

And God was pleased.
And Adam was greatly improved.
And Dog was happy.
And the Cat didn't give a hoot one way or the other.
