Blessing of the Animals

Yesterday was a really exciting day. My mom took me for a long walk after lunch, then we got in the car and went to church for the Blessing of the Animals. (This is done for the feast of St. Francis.)

I was super excited to see so many fun dogs, cats, and people!

I was a Good Boy and paid attention to the service:

This is my buddy Molly getting her blessing from Father Ray:

This kitty wasn't going to put up with the laying on of hands:

Finally, here's a picture of me and Mom. Can you believe this is the first picture of us together?

Oh man! My folks missed it! Last year they planned to take us and totally forgot this time around. Lazy humans!

Glad to hear you were such a good boy during services! I would have woo-woo-ed and whined the whole way through.
