Bless the Beasts


One of my favorite couples,(now this is tough because ALL my couples are my favorites) was actually at trio; Jessie, Philip and Milo. Milo is a fuzzy four footer; a sweet little gentleman who was very much a part of their wedding. As part of the wedding ceremony, we did a tiny “Blessing of the Pet”, and it was quite moving. Milo was a perfect gentledog! As a wonderful and thoughtful surprise, Jessie and Philip sent me a beautiful little book called, “Blessing of the Animals”, by Diana L. Guerrero. As Katherine Blanc, (The author of Bad Puppy’s Guide to Life”) writes, it is, “A celebration of all animals wild and tame; a rich infusion of timeless tradition, heartfelt meaning and sparkling wit”.

If you’re thinking of including your pet in your ceremony, this is a wonderful resource, and you’ll love checking it out!
