A MUST Read for ALL Dog Lovers!
God Summoned a Beast from the Field
And He said, "Behold man, created in my image. Therefore,
adore him. You shall protect him in the wilderness,
shepherd his flocks, watch over his children, accompany
him wherever he may go; even unto civilization. You
shall be his companion, his ally, his slave.
To do these things, God said, "I endow you with these
instincts 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 faults of man. Lest it impair your
understanding, you are denied the power of words.
Let no fault of language cleave an accord beyond that
of man with any other beast; or even man with man.
Speak to your master only with your mind and through
your honest eyes.
"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. And in return for this; man will fulfill
your needs and wants, which shall only be food, shelter
"So be silent, and be a friend to man. Guide him through the perils
along the way to the land that I have promised him. This
shall be your destiny and your immortality." So spoke the
Lord. And the dog heard and was content."
