Praying Dog and Boy
A Baptist couple decided that they wanted to get a dog.
As they are walking down the street in town, they notice a sign in the pet shop
advertising "Christian Puppies." Their interest piqued, they go inside.
"How do you know they're Christian puppies?" they ask the store owner.
"Watch," says the owner, as he takes one of the dogs and says, "Fetch
the Bible." The dog immediately runs over to the desk, and grabs the Bible in its mouth
and returns. Putting the Bible on the floor, the pet store owner says, "Find Psalm 23."
Without hesitation, the dog starts flipping pages with its paw until he finds the correct page,
and then stops.
Amazed and delighted, the couple purchase the dog and head-out for home.
That evening, they invite some friends over and show them the dog,
and have him run through his 23rd Psalm routine. Impressed, one of the visitors
asks: "Does he also know 'regular' commands?"
"Gee, we don't know. We didn't ask," replies the husband.
Turning to the dog, he says, "Sit." The dog sits. Then he says, "Lie down."
The dog lies down. "Roll over," says the husband. The dog obediently rolls over.
Very pleased with the dogs performance, he then says to the dog: "Heel." Immediately,
the dog runs over to him, jumps up on the sofa, puts both paws on the husband's forehead
and then bows his head in prayer.
"Oh look!" the wife exclaims. "He's Pentecostal!"
