cooper’s blessing

The day after my son’s birthday, our parish – Infant Jesus, conducted a blessing for the pets after the 1130 AM mass. After the mass, we hurried back home to get Cooper.

I thought that it would be a quick drive since we are about 10 minutes away from the church, but it was not to be. My son took Cooper out and he was confident that the dog will just go straight to the car. Well he was boasting that every time he leaves for school, he will take the dog out without the leash and Cooper will go straight to the car and climb inside the back seat. I guess that time was different, when the dog got out he went straight to the backyard (and we did not have a fence) and straight to the wooded area. It took us a long time to get him back, actually the dog came back or came out on his own.

Had to drive hurriedly to the church and we had minutes to spare. There were a lot of dogs and a few cats. Our dog was so hyper and could not keep still. I guess it’s understandable since he’s still a puppy.

If I was not mistaken, the blessing was because of Saint Francis’ feast day a few days ago and just delayed the blessing for that Sunday. It went well, Father King, the priest who officiated the blessing was so good with the animals and was not bothered by them. There was a photographer on site but I took a few shots of my own.
