THE BLESSING OF THE PETS

I took Rosie to the Blessing of the Pets today. She was afraid at first of the big dogs, especially those that were jumping up on everyone that walked by. But then she was content to walk around. But she wouldn't have anything to do with the Shih Tzus and everyone thought she was a mixed breed one. Then I heard one may say that he at first thought that lady had a skunk with her. lol A certain boxer looked at her as if she would make a good meal.

Me neither, but I'm pretty sure my girls need a good blessing!

Great pictures! I think the Presbyterian church here does that once a year. Neat idea!

Saint Francis of Assisi is the saint of pets and ecology, around Oct 4 or first part of Oct many Catholic churches do a day to bless the pets. Today there are inter faith churches that do it too. Lucile is that Rosie with the small girl??? Who is the cute little girl???
