GOD, ADAM, DOG and CAT
...And Adam said, "Lord, when I was in the garden, you walked with me every day. Now I do not see you anymore. I am lonesomehere and it is difficult for me to remember how much you love me." And God said, "Notta problem! I will create a companion for you that will be a reflection of my love for you. Regardless of how selfish and childish and unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are and 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 and he wagged his tail.
And Adam said, "But Lord, I have already named all the animals in the Kingdom and
all the good names are taken and I cannot think of a name for this new animal." And
God said, "Notta 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 name, and you will call him
DOG." And Dog lived with Adam and was a companion to him and loved him.And
Adam was comforted. And God was pleased. And Dog was content and wagged his tail.
After a while, it came to pass that Adam's guardian angel came to the Lord and said, "Lord, Adam has become filled with pride. He struts and preens like a peacock and he believes he is worthy of adoration. Dog has indeed taught him that he is loved, but no one has taught him humility." And the Lord said, "Notta problem! I will create for him a companion who will see him as he is, and will remind him of his limitations."
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 Dog was happy and wagged his tail...
And Adam was greatly improved...
And Cat did not care one way or the other.
