Did you know that 4 October is World Animal Day? I kinda just found out. Yikes!
Well, it started in Florence, Italy in 1931 at a convention of ecologists. On this day, animal life in all its forms is celebrated, and special events are planned in locations all over the globe. Reason why 4 October was originally chosen for World Animal Day is because it is the feast day of Francis of Assisi, a nature lover and patron saint of animals and the environment. Numerous churches throughout the world observe the Sunday closest to 4 October with a Blessing of the Animals.
Call us crazy but we are bringing Sparky to church on Sunday for a special blessing!
So give your pet a big hug and throw in a special treat just for them today! I know we will be giving ours big hugs and kisses!
Sneak! A photo from our recent pet photo-session. We love this shot loads!!!! Still waiting for the studio to touch-up and release the image to us. Fingers crossed it would look good after digital imaging! 🙂
