A farmer named Patrick lived alone in the Irish countryside with his pet dog.
The dog finally died and Patrick went to the parish
priest, saying "Father, my dog died. Could you possibly be saying a
Mass for the poor creature?"
Father Donald told the farmer "No, we can't have services for an animal
in the church, but I'll tell you what, there's a new denomination down
the road, and no telling what they believe in, but maybe they'll
do something for the animal."
Patrick said "I'll go right now. By the way, do you think $100,000 is
enough to donate for the service?"
Father Patrick replied "Why didn't you tell me the dog was Catholic."
