A Baptist preacher and his wife decided to get a new dog. Ever mindful of the congregation, they knew the dog must also be Baptist.
They visited kennel after kennel and finally found an owner who assured them that he had just the dog they wanted. The owner brought the dog to meet the pastor and his wife. ‘Fetch the Bible,’ he commanded.
The dog bounded over to the bookshelf, scrutinized the books, located the Bible and brought it to the owner. ‘Now find Psalm 23,’ he commanded. The dog dropped the Bible on the floor, and showing marvelous dexterity with his paws, leafed through and, finding the correct passage, pointed with his paw.
The preacher and his wife were very impressed and purchased the dog.
The pastor and his wife began to show off the dog, having him to locate several Bible verses.
The visitors were very impressed.
One man asked the preacher: ‘Can he do regular dog tricks, too?’ ‘I haven’t tried yet,’ the preacher replied.
He pointed his finger at the dog, ‘HEEL’ the preacher commanded. The dog immediately
jumped on a chair, placed one paw on the pastor’s forehead and began howling.
The pastor looked at his wife in shock and said,
‘Good Lord! He’s Pentecostal!
