Guess what? I got blessed. Scooby also got blessed!!
Since we have never been to anything like this, we didn't know what to expect or how many other guest would be there. Ma wanted to bring Jenny Sue along but didn't know if it would stress her out to much but now we wish we would have brought her. I think she could have handled it.
There were many other dogs there to be blessed. We tried to take photos of them all but between the sun in ma's eyes or being in the shaded areas, our photos didn't turn out the best they could be. I still wanted to share them with you all.
The blessings to place in the prayer garden. Its a lovely area that the church has worked hard to make it a beautiful place to gather your thoughts.
Rev. Campbell officiated the service. He is a really nice man who made me feel very welcomed. Honestly, I think he would have looked better in a Ky Wildcat sweatshirt but I won't hold it against him (tee hee)
There were a lot of dachsunds, a boston terrier and some other large dogs. I thought it was a wonderful turn out.
There was even a mini me there! The miniature black poodle was a little leery of me but I tried to make him feel as comfortable as possible by just ignoring him. I wasn't trying to be rude or anything but I was also working and I shouldn't pay attention to anyone or anything else but my ma.
Ma started giggling at this dog. He was either trying to bless the Reverend or trying to steal his chair. Whatever he was doing it was funny.
Ma also said she would like to attend a service at the church soon. Rev. Campbell had a good aura and was very welcoming. He made us feel like we had been friends forever. Ma said she would have to talk to the church first to see if they would mind if I attended with her. Churches do not have to follow the ADA so it is up to the disgression on the church whether they will allow service dogs to join their handlers.
Q34. Are churches, temples, synagogues, mosques, and other places of worship required to allow individuals to bring their service animals into the facility?
A. No. Religious institutions and organizations are specifically exempt from the ADA. However, there may be State laws that apply to religious organizations.

Scooby Doo and I have been officially blessed.
I feel I have already been blessed. I have a home, food, vet care, a job, a blog, friends who love me and a family that loves me.
What more could I ask for?
Have you ever taken your pet to get blessed?
I hope you have a beautiful blessed Monday!
