My blessing!

Thank you to Asta, whose blog reminded my mom that last Thursday was St. Francis of Assisi day. He is the patron saint of animals, and on his day, a lot of churches celebrate by having services where animals can get blessed!

My mom thought I could use a little blessing, so she walked me to a church just up the road from us last Thursday when she got home from work.

There were about 15 dogs there, and I knew two of them - big greyhounds. Their mom works with my mom, so I had met them before at an outdoor concert. I didn't know the rest of the dogs - I had never seen any of them at the dog park.

Little Miss Lorenza? Is that you? No, the brown dachshund wasn't our little blogging buddy from Mexico. I was a little disappointed. I should have guessed because Lorenza would have been dressed in a very pretty dress. Muy bonita!

My mom joked that she was worried I would hiss or melt or something when the holy water touched me. But I am no devil dog! I enjoyed it and gave the minister a kiss.

But nobody told me you're not supposed to drink the holy water.

I have been throwing up a little bit lately - maybe it's because I ate a crock of margarine last week. My mom calls me "Butter Boy." Not very funny. Hopefully with my blessing, I'll have a happy, healthy year coming up.

Hi Lenny!
Another doggy that we blog with is a HUGE butter fan! I can't think which one it is right now! Maybe Ivy???
Dad did go to Yale last night! That's where he got his heart transplant! I'm thinking that PICU is Pediatric Intensive Care Unit?? Dad and the Northford Timberframers give $$$ to the kids but normally dad doesn't visit with them. But never say never! You just never know!

Love ya lots,

Hey Lenny, I prefer butter to margarine, but really I'm not that picky as long as it's food! Hope you're feeling better now pal. J x

Lenny Boy!

So... you've got a little butter addiction, huh? Well, the first step is to admit it. Now, are you ready to make some changes for the better?

How cool that you kissed the minister. I bet you were the only dog there who thought to thank them for the blessing.

Goober love,
