For Latigo

Once there was a puppy who was so happy and he was named Checkers. Checkers was so happy that he was the happiest puppy in the world.

Checkers was born to a fat-cheeked young boy named Jamison.

One day while Checkers and Jamison were playing outside, a beautiful butterfly fluttered by. This butterfly enchanted Checkers and the happy puppy ran after the beautiful butterfly.

Right into the road where both were hit by a car. Oh, no! Checkers, you must look both ways! Naughty butterfly to lure the fun-loving Checkers! I hope your carapace was crushed into yellow goo!

When Checkers got to heaven, he frolicked around the robed Saint Peter. Checkers made to run into the pearly gates when Saint Peter stopped him.

"I'm sorry, Checkers, you were innocent and happy but you did not receive the sacrament of baptism so it's down to hell you go."

Then, as if it were some kind of miracle, the driver of the smashing car was also a vet! The vet saved Checkers and had him baptized a Catholic and also neutered so Checkers could never have the sin of sex!

And they all lived happily ever after. Except the butterfly.
