Thirteen dogs, a hamster, a bearded dragon, four stuffed friends and three pictures of lost pets were blessed at the annual pet blessing service in the Church of Our Saviour The Redeemer Stoney Creek.

“All animals acted as though they knew that they were in church!” wrote correspondent Bev Groombridge.

Each pet owner was given a certificate of blessing which read in part, “May you and your human companion enjoy life together and find joy with the God who created you.”

After, there was a bbq for the humans and animal crackers for the little ones.
