A dog died, and the owner went to his pastor and said: Pastor, my dog is dead, could there be a service for the poor creature? The pastor replied, "I'm afraid not. We cannot have a service for an in the church. But there is a new church down the road, and there's no telling what they believe. Maybe they'll do something for the animal; u can go and find out"! The man answered innocently, "I'll go right away pastor ... but do you think they will accept a donation of $ , as being enough in return for the burial service?" The pastor exclaimed "Ooh!... Why didn't you tell me the dog was a christian?
