Hello Friends.

This past Saturday MOM had "Blessing of the Animals" at our church.  Most of you know that doggies are welcome at our church.  In fact every 3rd Sunday of the month we have "Bring your dog to worship".  But once a year all animals are invited to come and be blessed.  

I'm ready for everyone to arrive.

I start us off with a little singing.

This is my friend Annie.  Annie got heart worm and has not been able to play with me for a very long time.  But I hope she can in a couple of weeks.

This is Cole.  She is a sweet girl.

This is Dotty, she is just 16 weeks old.  Let the Awwww's begin.

MOM needed to take a little break.  I told her the tree was over there.  But she just gave me the "raised" eyebrow look.   So while she was gone I took over and put on her stole.

And here is Murphy.

And Stanley

There was even play time for the puppies.

Say hello to Odie

And Murry

This is Stella and George.  They just came from an agility thingy.  I hear they did pretty well.

This is Oskar and ummmm I forgot the others name.  But the cool thing about Oskar is while he is a friendly dog he DOES NOT like to be looked at in the eye and he does not like to be touched except by his mom.  Guess what?  He let my MOM pet him and pet him and they even looked right into each others eyes.  Oskar's parents were shocked.

This is Cindy and Sara.  They both were rescued from some very terrible situations.  But they have a loving forever home now and are a huge blessing to their parents.

This is Buddy.  He is a crazy lovable puppy.

There were a whole lot more doggies.  I'll try and show you more pictures later.  It was a great time and I was so happy to help my MOM with this.  Can't wait till next year.  But in the mean time if you are in our area remember you can come to my church and bring your people with you.

    My hoomin friend says when she was a young-un in school, she brought her parakeets in a cage to school for the after-school blessing on St. Francis Day. :)

  4. You have the most special church, in the whole world. Because it is the only one that has Goose :) Cheesy? Hehe. Don't you ever worry about letting us down. Not at all. You are always our funny Goosey. Maybe some time later you will think of a good story and share it with us. Who knows? God answers all prayers, right? I think I am down with a bug (feverish). Need to get well soon.


  5. Oh Goose, you have an awesome set of canine parishioners! I especially like Oskar (yeah, he totally looks like a long haired version of ME) cool that your Mom has like dog whispering abilities! :-D That was nice of you to give your Mom a break, I'm sure you did an awesome job!

  6. Woof! Woof! Oh Goose for sure it was a Beautiful Blessings. Yes I do remember that Blessings of the Animals happens every Fall. I'll be missing this year but I do feel your mom's blessings. Lots of Golden LOVE n Woofs, Sugar

  9. We love this Goose. Mum if ever she had time could do a virtual version for us who can't make it. We enjoyed seeing your doggy congregation. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  10. I'd love to come! Sam was blessed as a pup, but none of the churches in our area will allow pets to come.


  11. Oh my gosh, DOTTY!!!!!!!! Goose, I can tell she probably wants to be your best friend. If I was a dog, I'd want to come to your church. I'm a human though - but this still means I'd come to your church. If I lived close enough that would offer lots and lots of seeing beautiful! Love that you and your MOM do this!

    Sending see beautful thoughts your way, friend!

  12. This is so special! I have been looking around in my area and since the feast day is during the week, all the services around here start before I even get home form work! Sheesh! I love all the folks and animals that came down to yours! So wonderful!

  13. That was such a wonderful day......maybe we should hold an online blessing for all us fur babies....we would be there!

  14. You and your Mom just warm our hearts! What a beautiful day for your Blessing of the Animals. Wish we could have been there to share the day with you and your furry furends. We would have liked that alot.

  22. That's just great! Wish we had such a wonderful church ....animals are here not allowed in church :o(

  23. Goose, you did an outstanding job, and lots of furends are better off because of your caring. Thanks much for blessing all the poochies, and many blessings on you also.

  24. very nice. I have been to church (hiding in my incognito bag and also once WAS part of the children's sermon) but have never been blessed.

    that is very cool.

  25. Thank you Goose for having your mom give us our blessing! We thought it was wonderful and of course we come to church every time we possibly can. And it was great to see a photo of Annie. I bet when we see her again she will not even recognize us since we have grown so much since the last time we saw her!

    Your friends,

    Murphy & Stanley

  26. Howdy Goose, what a beautiful group of friends you have. Doesn't matter what colour or size, they all felt welcome, just as it should be. Well done mates. Hope your week has been good so far. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  27. Wonderful pictures of all the doggies and it sounds like a wonderful day!

  28. I absolutely love your photos of the dogs at church! What a wonderful pastor you are, Goose! Spreading love all around.
