And God Created ….

The Creation Story As Told by the Dog

On the first day of creation, God created
the dog.

On the second day, God created man to
serve the dog.

On the third day, God created all the
animals of the earth (especially the horse)
to serve as potential food for the dog.

On the fourth day, God created honest toil
so that man could labor for the good of the

On the fifth day, God created the tennis ball
so that the dog might or might not retrieve it.

On the sixth day, God created veterinary
science to keep the dog healthy, and the

had to walk the dog.

    A man wrote a letter to a small hotel in a Midwest town he planned to visit on his vacation.

    He wrote: “I would very much like to bring my dog with me.

    He is well-groomed and very well behaved. Would you be willing to permit me to keep him in my room with me at night?”

    An immediate reply came from the hotel owner who said :

    “I’ve been operating this hotel for many years. In all that time, I’ve never had a dog steal towels, bed clothes or silverware or pictures off the walls. I’ve never had to evict a dog in the middle of the night for being drunk and disorderly. I’ve never had a dog run out on a hotel bill.

    Yes indeed, your dog is welcome at my hotel.

    And if your dog will vouch for you, you’re welcome to stay here, too.”

    Rare! :>))))!!!! Excellent!!!!

    Being the, um, PERSON in the story and not the dog, I will have no compunction whatsoever about stealing it to send around to my DogPals list.

    Woof! *emoticon for wagging tail*

    No doubt you are all familiar with the Dyslexic Atheist who didn’t believe in Dog?

    On the first day God created the cat.
    On the second day God created man to worship the cat.
    On the third day the cat sacked God and created Ted Heath.

  5. RAB says:

    That’ll be Heathcliff the cat then will it? Over which he pushed this noble realm back in 1975?

  6. Julie near Chicago says:

    RAB, would that be somebody named Dawgkins?

    Lynne, how disrespectful. However, I doubt that Cat will forgive you for accusing HimHer of creating Mr. Heath. :>))

    For your sake, I do hope that Miss Ruby remembers which side of her bread has the raw steak, when Cat comes calling….

  7. Lynne at Counting Cats says:

    Don’t worry about Ruby, Julie. The cat won’t get within sniffing distance of Ruby’s steak because it will be too busy sprinting for the nearest fence. She’s a follower of Dawgkins, you see.

    RAB, yep that would be Heathcliff. And since cats tend to be lazy creatures (my sister has four and they always seem to be kipping when they aren’t stuffing their faces) I’m sure the Original Cat would have, by necessity, created him.
