We always wait every October 4th to take our beloved pets on the Feast of Saint Francis to church. How very often we have had interesting experiences with them...like the time our loved bird Christie,began calling out her name during the final blessing..or when we took Angus the very first year, only to have him lunge at the hooded monk....I can still remember the G-dog throwing his head back and howling when Father Richard sprinkled him with holy water ( it reminded me more of an exorcism than celebration! )
Today Becky experienced her very first official feast day....with about fifty other pets...kinda funny how they all arrived at once!"Hmmmmmm...feeling a little zhy Becky?"
...."I mean Pa won't drop me or anything, right?
Thank you very much to the wonderful clergy at the Church of Saint Dominic for a beautiful ceremony....and a very Happy Feast Day tomorrow to all!
