The Blessing of the Animals!


Grace Cathedral

Me and Nalle sat

And listened to the service

For a whole hour


We had gone to church today

To bless all the animals






Wooooohoooowoooooo Efurrybuddy! In honor of the Feast of Saint Francis yesterday, many churches in the this city named fur Saint Francis had services fur the Blessing of the Animals. That means we went to church! Not just any ol’ church, but the big big beauwooowooootiful Grace Cathedral. We were a little too excited fur Mama to take too many piccies, but if you want to see some pawesome piccies of the cathedral, including it’s beauwoooowoooootiful stained glass, the big labyrinth, and many many murals, clicky on over to our photography bloggy here and here!

Me and Nalle had never been to a church before, nor had we been to a Mass before, but we behaved furry furry good. I paid attention constantly. Nalle laid down on the super coowooowooool stone floor (it’s been up to 90°F/32°C here fur days!), and looked like she wasn’t paying attention, but when the priest asked if anyone was familiar with a certain book about animals, she said: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! That made efurrybuddy in the chapel smile and laugh! WOL! Mama had no idea that Nalle was reading so much! Going to therapy pup school has sure paid off fur Nalle! WOL! Here are some piccies:
