A6. Animals at Play (Week 51)

4 Comments

Every now and then Sly would swat at the dog or Roxy would nudge the cat – and the romping begins.  Round and round they would go.  They play and play until one grows tired of it and strolls away – usually Sly.  But try as I might, I could not get a clear photo of the tumbling and wrestling, so I’ve had to settle for this.

Where Dogs Come From

(From a lost chapter in the Book of Genesis:)

Where Dogs Come From…Adam was walking in the garden and cried out to God, “You used to walk with me every day. Now I do not see you anymore. I am lonely here, and it is difficult for me to remember how much you love me.”And God said, “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 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, “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, “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 perhaps too well.”

And the Lord said, “I will create for him a companion who will be with him forever and who will see him as he is. The companion will remind him of his limitations, so he will know that he is not always worthy of adoration.”

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 Adam was greatly improved.
And Dog was happy.
And Cat didn’t give a rat’s butt one way or the other.

  1. From the cat- As it should be – and where is my dinner? Now pet me – now leave me alone. lol
    I understand – when my cats are playing – the camera is not there and by the time I get it – they are laying there looking at me like – you thought you were going to….. ha ha ha.

    • True, Sue. I was taking pictures of our dog one day and kept telling her to stay. Then when I went to take a picture of the cat I expected him to stay – silly me! This cat will actually look at me when I say his name and follow me when I motion for him, which always thrills me!

  2. I love the story. I’ve never seen it before. It surely is the truth.
