AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINE MYTHOLOGY

The Dreamtime Gods and Spirits of Oz

NJIRANA

Australian Canine God

Dreamtime God of Good Dogs

He wandered the world back in ancient DREAMTIME along with his son JULANA. He is best known for destroying all the bad dogs in the world. That’s why all the dogs you will ever meet are nice, friendly, tame, obedient and will never slump under the table or attempt intercourse with your leg.

Okay, maybe a few bad dogs slipped the net. Give him a break. You should have seen the really bad ones.

While his father was paying all this attention to canine critters, his son JULANA apparently went off the rails and grew up to become a monstrous pervert.
