From a blog reader...

...who I think wishes to remain anonymous.

An Orthodox man came to his Priest and asked if he would serve a funeral for his dog who has died.

The Priest replied that the Orthodox Church does not serve funerals for animals and perhaps the man can go down the street to the local Episcopalian church, they may serve the funeral.

The man asked, “Father, do you think that $5,000 will be enough of a stipend for the funeral?”

“Why didn’t you tell me that your dog was Orthodox?”

I wonder what the toll houses are for dogs. Shoes begging to be chewed? Gardens to dig up? Fat, slow squirrels that can't climb trees?

We laugh, but a memorial for a K-9 unit dog was actually served in a Greek Orthodox church in Michigan just last week.
