To the Dog, God Said: "Behold man created in my image. You shall be his companion, his ally, his most loyal friend.I will endow you with these traits uncommon to other beasts: faithfulness, devotion and understanding, surpassing those of man himself. Lest it impair your courage, you shall never foresee your death. Lest it impair your loyalty, you shall be blind to the faults of man. Lest it impair your understanding, you are denied the power of words; your eyes shall convey the truth of your heart. Lest man's attachment to you grow too great, the span of your life shall be brief. Walk by his side, sleep in his doorway, forage for him, ward off his enemies, carry his burdens, share his afflictions, love him and comfort him. This shall be your destiny and your immortality." So spoke the Lord. And the dog was content. Miss you Puppy Girl.
