I once saw a poster that answered the question of why God invented dogs.

Wow you weren’t joking about picture 68, made me go start playing with my dogs. I honestly couldn’t part with those furry bastards ever.

Its almost painful to see innocent animals forced to take part in the savagery of mankind.
