Where do pets come from?
Where do pets come from?

A newly discovered chapter in the Book of
Genesis has provided the answer to "Where do
pets come from?"

Adam and Eve said, "Lord, when we were in the
garden, you walked with us every day. Now we do
not see you any more. We are lonesome here, and
it is difficult for us to remember how much you
love us."

And God said, I will create a companion for you
that will be with you and 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 and will love you as I do, in spite of
yourselves."

And God created a new animal to be a companion
for Adam and Eve.

And it was a good animal.

And God was pleased.

And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam
and Eve and he wagged his tail.

And Adam said, "Lord, I have already named all
the animals in the Kingdom and I cannot think
of a name for this new animal."

And God said, " 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 and Eve and was a
companion to them and loved them.

And they were comforted.

And God was pleased.

And Dog was content and wagged his tail.

After a while, it came to pass that an angel
came to the Lord and said, "Lord, Adam and Eve
have become filled with pride. They strut and
preen like peacocks and they believe they are
worthy of adoration. Dog has indeed taught them
that they are loved, but perhaps too well."

And God said, I will create for them a
companion who will be with them and who will
see them as they are. The companion will remind
them of their limitations, so they will know
that they are not always worthy of adoration."

And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam
and Eve.

And Cat would not obey them. And when Adam and
Eve gazed into Cat's eyes, they were reminded
that they were not the supreme beings.

And Adam and Eve learned humility.

And they were greatly improved.

And God was pleased. And Dog was happy.

And Cat didn't care one way or the other.

1. Love it.
Dogs have owners; cats have staff.

Dogs come when you call; cats take a message and get back to you.

A dog looks at its owner and thinks, "She feeds me and pets me and takes care of me. She must be God." A cat looks at its owner and thinks, "She feeds me and pets me and takes care of me. I must be God."

2. Here's a little something
"The gift which I'm sending you is called a dog, and is in fact the most precious and valuable possesion of mankind."
-Theodorus Gaza
Laudation Canis: An address to Mohammed II


Sorry don't have one for cats.
