where do pets come from?

A newly discovered chapter in the book of Genesis has provided the answer to the age-old question, “Where DO pets come from?”

It goes something like this…

Adam and Eve said, “Lord, when we were in the garden you walked with us every day, now we don’t see you anymore. We are lonesome here and it is difficult for us to remember how much you love us.”

God Said, “No problem. 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 can not see me. Regardless of how selfish or childish or unloveable, 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 of the animals in the Kingdom  and I cannot think of a name for this new animal.”
And God said, “No problem! 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 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.

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, “No problem. I will create for them a companion who will be with them and will see them as they truly are. The companion will remind them of their limitations so that they will remember why they were kicked out of the garden in the first place and 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 Cats’ eyes they were reminded they were NOT 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 give a crap one way or the other…
