"Where Do Pets Come From?" (author unknown)

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 anymore. We are lonesome here
and it is difficult for us to remember how much you love us."
And God said, "No problem! I will create a companion for you that
will be with you forever 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, "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 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, "No problem! I will create for them a companion who
will be with them forever 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 give a crap one way
or the other.
