Was it God Who Let the Dogs Out?
Prayer works well for some, not so well for others, and a little too well for certain people. You are probably wondering how prayer can work too well. I wondered the same thing before I met my roommate. One morning I answered the impatient knocking on my bedroom door only to find her tightly clutching a puppy.
“Does he belong to a friend of yours?”
“No, he’s mine”
“When did you get him?”
“I prayed to God for a dog, opened the front door, and there he was”
“There’s a term for that. It’s called dognapping”
“Clearly you don’t understand the power of prayer”
While I don’t condone dog theft, I’ll admit I’m a sucker for cute puppies so I did want to play with him before forcing my roommate to give him back. The dog on the other hand was not particularly interested in playing with us. Frustrated by his lack of response to our words, my roommate angrily exclaimed that the dog was Chinese.
Spotting a phone number on the dog’s tag I called it, much to the dismay of my roommate. After the call I told her that the owner lived nearby and that the dog knew his way home, but made it a point to withhold the fact that the owner had a thick Chinese accent.
When my roommate opened the door, the dog began to run, turned around, looked at my roommate and then ran even faster. I was then informed that God would punish me for interfering with his plan. Personally I think a dognapping roommate who eats my chocolate is punishment enough.
Yours is just as funny. 😆 There is a story about stealing a bike, see if I can find it for you. Later…
I’ve had my bike stolen a few times. Once from inside my house. I really wonder if that’s what the thieves were thinking
That is fantastic! I can just imagine your roomate asking for a car and taking one parked out front because the keys were in it.
She happened to really dislike one of our other roommates so she used that girl’s bowl to give the dog water. And when the other girl came downstairs and I told her the dog story, my dognapping roommate refused to explain why there was a bowl of water in the middle of the ground.
It would be okay if she were joking, but it obviously had a tag…now that’s just messed up.
Maybe the dog didn’t understand English? Great story. Obviously, God has a sense of humor…
Thank you for the laugh 🙂
