The Blessing of the Animals!


Nalle and Me with Mama outside Grace Cathedral in front of the golden doors!

We are blessed pups

Blest by the priestess lady

And Saint Francis too!










Wooohooowooooooo Efurrybuddy! Remember how last year Mama took me and Nalle to Grace Cathedral for the Feast of Saint Francis, the patron saint of animals, and the Blessing of the Animals fur World Animal Day?!? Here is a link to last year’s piccies and story. This year we went again, and it was just as pawesome! Here are some piccies of the Cathedral, but there are much better ones, including the Chartes Cathedral inspired labyrinth here on our photography bloggy.


The main hall.


Nalle checking out the labyrinth.


Nalle paying her respects to our buddy Saint Francis.


The side chapel, which as big as a church itself, where we had the service.



Nalle and Me waiting patiently fur the service to start and watching all the people and pets arrive.


Me and Nalle being furry good and listening intently to the sermon. Nalle was so into the sermon about the wonderful Saint Francis that she called out a furry loud AMEN-WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!


Nalle, aka Nurse Nalle, is a therapy pup, and she made sure to give her wuvwuvwuv and blessings to all the people sitting around us!


Bye-bye Beauwoowoootiful Grace!

Here is the furry beauwoowooootiful Pawrayer of Saint Francis and Susan Boyle singing it:

Make me a channel of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me bring you love,
Where there is injury, your pardon Lord,
And where there’s doubt, true faith in you.
Make me a channel of your peace,
Where there’s despair in life, let me bring hope,
Where there is darkness, only light,
And where there’s sadness, ever joy.
Oh Master grant that I may never seek,
So much to be consoled as to console,
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love with all my soul.
Make me a channel of your peace,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
In giving to all men that we receive,
And in dying that we’re born to eternal life.
