Jesus Appears on a Doggy Door



Christ on a Doggy Door
is now my new slogan.

That’s what a Yucaipa family is wondering after an image they say resembles Jesus Christ appeared on the plastic flap of their pet door — days before they were to get rid of their two unruly canines.

“I’m probably not going to become a born-again evangelist, but I cannot deny that I think there was a spirit of redemption at work,” said Roger Bowman, 41. “I don’t know, maybe the dogs will save somebody in our swimming pool one day.”

The image combines dirt, claw marks and a manufacturer’s logo to form what — when backlit and viewed from the right angle — looks something like the long-haired, bearded Jesus the faithful see in the Shroud of Turin.
