On Sunday, September 27, 2015 at 2 p.m. in the front lawn of St. Matthew’s United Methodist Church the pets were blessed. About 40 animals were in attendance, along with their owners, to have their spirits uplifted and prayed on for a long and healthy life. Guiding Eyes for the Blind were special guests – they passed out literature about the dogs and the organization and had a few wonderful dogs and puppies the use in demonstrations. Everyone, even the working dogs had fun. We will be blessing pets next year – stay tuned and bring yours then.
