A Christian couple felt it important to own an equally
fundamentally Christian pet. So, they went shopping. At a
kennel specializing in this particular breed, they found a
dog they liked quite a lot. When they asked the dog to fetch
the Bible, he did it in a flash. When they instructed him to
look up Psalm 23, he complied equally fast, using his paws
with dexterity. They were impressed, purchased the animal,
and went home.
That night they had friends over. They were so proud of
their new fundamentalist dog and his major skills, they
called in the dog and showed
off a little.
The friends were impressed and asked whether the dog was
able to do any of the usual dog tricks as well. This stopped
the couple cold, as they hadn't
thought about "normal" tricks.
Well, they said. "Let's try this out." Once more they called
the dog and they clearly pronounced the command, "Heel!"
Quick as a wink, the dog jumped up, put his paw on the man's
forehead, closed his eyes in concentration and bowed his head.
