SUNday FUNday – Unleashed!

Giving thanks for the many ways God’s creatures’ enrich and bless our lives

My friends Cher & Trigger 

I took my dog to church today for “blessing the animals.” He enjoyed the outing but I don’t think he’ll be begging to go back.  People brought their dogs, a cat and someone brought a stuffed chicken.

We are not religious but we can be spiritual.  If we had to choose a religion I think we’d consider ourselves to be Foodists above everything else.  Nevertheless a little churchgoing never hurt anyone and I have to give thanks to my furry little friends for keeping me safe and sane.  I really believe we are of service to each other and I can’t imagine life without them.

This world can sometimes be a terrible place but animals make it better.  It’s a known fact that animals provide therapy and taking them to senior’s homes and prisons helps to calm people and make them happier.church2

Here is a little excerpt from a prayer called “Blessing the Animals”

Bless these creatures who come to us as a blessing

Fashioned of fur or feather or fin,

Formed of flesh that breathes with your own breath,

Bless them who can’t themselves

Around our hearts who twine themselves through our days

Who companion us in our labour

Who call us to come and play.

Bless them who will never be entirely tamed

And so remind us that you love what is wild,

That you rejoice in what lives close to the earth,

That your heart beats in the heart of those creatures

Can you really envision a world without animals?  I can’t!

I’m blessed to have Jia Jia & Jack (on occasion) in my life plus all the other neighbourhood animals that come around from time to time.

I met another Preast.  Her name is Tammy (below) and she has a company called “Love on a Leash” which provides trusted dog care services with a DogSafe overnight and vacation care environment, first aid and daily walks (including group walks).  You can visit her at:  http://www.loveonaleash.ca/

AFTER that we  went for coffee & dessert at Tartine Bakery on Davie St.  They were so busy they didn’t even realize there were two dogs inside the cafe. Bless them!

AFTER that I met Mimi from Mélange Home Design and Décor.  Her vision is to encapsulate a certain mixture of luxurious, vintage, and modern organic designs which I’ll be putting on this blog very soon.    A sampling:
