I'm all blessed now!

Today, I was loaded into the car and taken to St. Michael's Church in Old Town for the annual Blessing of the Animals.


I was pretty excited to be there. I had no idea what a blessing was, but I saw some other dogs, so I was good to go.
When we arrived there were only two other dogs already there, but as the service began lots of dogs and a few cats arrived!


It was a perfect fall day outside, so the blessing took place in the courtyard of the church. I had no clue what the priest was saying, but after the blessing he slipped me a dog treat, so he's alright with me.
Here's me as I am getting sprinkled with holy water. I turned and gave my rear end to the priest, so mom laughs and said my rump was blessed. He he he!
Now I'm a blessed Airedale! I'm not looking too happy in this picture since mom is keeping me away from the refreshment table.
Don't worry pals, moments after the picture was taken, I hightailed it over to the treats. Just like a good little doggy!

I wonder, now that I'm blessed can I cause all the trouble that I want? Hmmph, that's one to think about.

'Till Next Time,
Kirby

Wow Kirby, you've been blessed. We've never been blessed. I think that's why we can be trouble sometimes.
How does it feel???

I heard that once you've been blessed, treats fall from the sky for you every day! Has it started happening to you yet? Maybe it was just a rumor?

Love ya lots,
Maggie

Hey Kirby...wow a blessed bum, huh? Scruffy got his royal rumpus smacked by Daddy on Sunday. Then Mumsie got mad at Daddy...(it really was only a love tap, but she became disturbed...) Scruffy chose to hose down the island in the kitchen RIGHT in front of Daddy. By the sound of it, he could have extinguished the San Francisco fire a few decades back. He hasn't done something that bad since I came to straighten him out...but, alas, I was in a weakened state post fixit surgery. Perhaps, Scruffy needs his bum blessed...Frankly, I think the dog needs his brain blessed.

So what bout those treats falling from the sky? Can I come and live with you??????

Ahhhh, Kirby!

You are so existential, man! That truly IS the question. Now that you're blessed, can you wreak all the havoc you want?

Sounds like your priest is a good guy. Anyone who slips treats and blesses booties is ok by me too!

Goober love,
Stanley
