God said "I will create a companion for you that will be with you forever and who will be a reflection of my love for you. Regardless of how selfish, childish, or unlovable you may be, he will love and accept you as you are in spite of yourself." The new animal was pleased to be with Adam and he wagged his tail. "He will be your protector and your friend." God said "his name will be a reflection of my own name, and you will call him DOG".
