Turns out my Bible has some missing verses.
"The LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
. . . .
18 The LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him."
. . . .
21 So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man's ribs [h] and closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib [i] he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
23 The man said, "Yahoooo!
And the woman said, "No way I'm chasing a stupid tennis ball, Jack. You've gotta be kidding!"
And the man sure wouldn't.
So God created dogs, and saw they were good.
