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, and it is difficult for us to remember how much you love us.”
God said, “I will create a companion for you so you will know love even when you cannot see me. No matter of how selfish or childish you behave, this new companion will accept you as you are and love you as I do.”
It was a very good animal.
And God was pleased.
And the new animal was happy to be with Adam and Eve and wagged its tail.
Adam said, “Lord, I have named all the animals in the Kingdom, but I cannot think of a fitting name for this new animal.”
God said, “this new animal is a reflection of my love for you, so its name will be a reflection of my own name, and you will call it DOG.”
No matter what.
Adam and Eve were comforted.
God was pleased.
Dog was content and wagged his tail.
One day, an angel came to the Lord and said, “Adam and Eve are filled with pride. They strut and preen like peacocks and believe they are worthy of adoration. Dog has taught them that they are loved, but perhaps too well.”
God said, “I will create for them another companion who will see them as they are. This companion will remind them of their limitations and they will know that they are not always worthy of adoration.”
Cat would not obey Adam and Eve. Cat hissed and scratched. Cat reminded Adam and Eve they were not supreme beings.
Adam and Eve learned humility and were greatly improved.
God was pleased.
Dog was happy.
Cat didn’t give a shit one way or the other.
Aah . . . that’s better!
