A Somewhat Irreverent view of Dog Judging
 

One day in Heaven Saint Peter, Saint Paul, and Saint John were standing around the heavenly kennels watching the dogs laying around.

"I am certainly bored" stated John. "Me too" Paul chimed in. Peter stood and watching the dogs said "I know" Peter began. "Why don't we have a dog show?"

Paul & John thought that the idea was great except for one small detail that Paul pointed out. "Who are we to compete against, Peter?" Paul asked.

The trio pondered a moment when Peter realised the answer.

"We will call up Satan and invite him to the dog show. I mean, we have all of the finest dogs here in Heaven; all of the World and National Champions are here. His kennels are filled with the spoiled,  difficult and mean dogs. We are certain to win at the show!"

And so the trio called up Satan on the "other realm" communication line and invited him to their dog show.

Satan laughed and asked why they would want to be humiliated like that, because he would certainly beat them.

Peter, Paul and John did not understand. "What do you mean Satan?"

Peter asked. "We have all of the National and World Champion dogs in our kennels in Heaven. How could you possibly beat us?"

Satan paused a moment and then laughed:


      "Have you forgotten so soon gentlemen?......

 

I have all the judges!"
