Adam And Eve's Pets

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, 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 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, '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, I will create for them a companion who will be with them
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 hoot one way or the other.

Well said. Don't know what I would do without my 2 dogs. My Rottie and Lab. What a great combo.

We had cat and a basset hound, they tolerated one another. The cat would lay on the cedar chest and when the dog would walk by, WHACK, for no reason other than to torment.

We have three cats, all were rescue:
.

.
Our two German Shepherds only screw with Mandy, a Lynx Point Siamese, because she's the only one that runs from them. But, she plays the scared little kitty to lure them in and then lets go with batting them about 783 whacks in 1.2 seconds. Casper is our only male animal (well he used to be all male), and just sits in the middle of the floor and the dogs carry him around by the head.

When he starts to scream, Sam...who is actually the alpha animal of the house will chase down the dogs and protect the other two cats. I mean really, she will stalk the dogs. You know the attitude...hunkered low to the floor, slow deliberate steps, ears down flat. I've had to dig her claws out of one of the dogs back more than once.

How do they say it?

Dogs have owners,
Cats have servants.

Use the right tool for the job.
