The Blessing of the Animals

Yesterday we attended The Blessing of the Animals at our church.  Ron has wanted to take Bella to be blessed for the past 3 years but this year we finally did it.  Ron even had Bella groomed for the occasion.

The animals loved the clarinet and the service.

 I wish I had taken more pictures of the other animals.  There were guinea pigs, dogs, a turtle, and a very fat cat named Cat Stevens.

Not a single dog barked or cat hissed.  It was very interesting how calm and cool the animals were.  When Dr. Thurston started playing the clarinet they all sat transfixed on the music. 

Ron was a very proud dog owner.  Bella was definitely the smallest dog there but she was so calm and well behaved.  She made her Grandpa very proud.
