Our Afternoon of Furry, Drooly, Barky, Somewhat Unruly Blessings

Last Saturday afternoon, The Hubby and I loaded Jon Farleigh and Dewi into the car and made our way to the community-wide Blessing of the Animals at our local Presbyterian church. We were not the only ones who had the same idea:

In fact, for a sunny Saturday afternoon during prime holiday shopping season, there was great canine* representation. 

Large and small

Young and old

Stinky and mostly not

Clothed and naked :)

From many walks of life.

Definitely blessings.

The little doo doo heads. :)

*One family brought their cat. Our three (cats) did everyone a favor and participated by proxy.


  1. This looks wonderful.

    And oh. my. dog. That Dobie pup is the bomb! Eegad, look at his feet!

    I'm a big sucker for the old dogs, too. And of course, the too cute Corgis. ;)

  2. God Bless us Everyone!

    You had some good company there!

    Great photostory!

  3. You got some fabulous pictures! Just love them all!

  4. What a perfect day! Lots of cute fur kids :)

  5. It looks like a great outing to me! I wish we had more things like that here where we could take the dogs along!

  6. Glad to see Doxies represented :) Looks like you had a chance to sniff lots of doggie friends.

  7. Adorable! I am not very religious but I can get behind attending any event with so many gorgeous dogs. Thanks for sharing the photos!

  8. @All - They are all beautiful, aren't they?! It was a blast just watching everyone interact.

    @Leslie - I just want to eat that little Dobie up! He just stood there like that through the whole thing. :)

    @Houndstooth - We have a dog mall, a few festivals and services like this, but barely any off-leash areas in the whole city. I guess it's better than nothing, though. :)


We love comments almost as much as Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! Thank you!
