Converting a Dog to Christianity

I was in the break room this morning making my long-overdue first cup of coffee when a co-worker named Aly came in to get herself something. She expressed her appreciation for my coffee mug; it’s a plain black mug that says “WTF?” in large white lettering. I ordered it from ThinkGeek.com.

“Thanks,” I replied. “I like it too.”

“It reminds me of something that happened with an old boyfriend of mine,” Aly continued. “He had this dog, and this one time he was trying to teach him to fetch, and he said, ‘Come on, Timmy – what would Jesus’s dog do?’ I thought he should make leashes or dog collars that said that. You know, like ‘WWJDD?’”

“I’ll tell you what Jesus’s dog would do,” I said. “He’d pee on your leg and turn it into wine.”

I got a pretty good laugh from her on that one. It seemed genuine, anyway… maybe you had to be there.

So now I’m wondering… what other fun things would Jesus’s dog do?

    How about feeding 5,000 doggies with five pieces of kibble and two milkbones… just a thought.

    WWJDD? well, he’d forgive you for selling him to a new owner for 30 kibbles and bits. Then, after he dies and you bury him, he’d return after 3 days. 2,000 years later Andrew Lloyd Weber will write a musical about you.

    The beatitudes would be the bow-wow-atudes. (wocka wocka!)

    I was thinking along the same lines, except that afterward he would take the twelve boxes of leftover milkbones and bury them in the flowerbed.

    2,000 years later Andrew Lloyd Weber will write a musical about you.

    At this point, I’d be OK with waiting 2,000 years between ALW musicals.

    The beatitudes would be the bow-wow-atudes.

    Already are, if you ask my dogs. :)
