Muldoon lived alone in the Irish countryside with only a pet dog for company. One day the dog died, and Muldoon went to the parish priest and asked, "Father, me dog is dead. Could ya' be a sayin' a mass for the poor creature?" Father Patrick replied, "I'm afraid not me boy; we cannot have services for an animal in the church. There are some Baptists down the lane and there's no tellin' what they believe. Maybe they'll do somethin' for the creature." Muldoon said, "I'll go right away Father. Do ya think $5,000 id enough to donate for the service?" Father Patrick exclaimed, "Sweet Mary, Mother of Jesus!! Why didn't ya tell me the dog was Catholic?"
