When they looked out the screen door, there sat a large St. Bernard. "See, Jack, there is no lion on the porch; it's only a dog. Go now and tell God how sorry you are for telling another lie."

Jack ran off but returned quickly and his mother asked, "Did you tell God you were sorry?"

Jack replied, "Yes, and He said, 'That's all right, Jack, I thought it looked like a lion Myself."'
