Speechless, I have nothing to add, the clip speaks for itself...

Becky Wilkes/SDN Missy, a 9-year-old Jack Russell terrier, is held by her owner, pre-vet major Ginny Powell of Germantown, Tenn., as Rev. William Livingston, rector of the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection, delivers a blessing. Powell said that this is Missy's ninth blessing; she attends the service every year, either in Germantown or here in Starkville. As Livingston placed his hand on the dog, she obediently lowered her head. The service celebrating the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi with the Blessing of the Animals drew a large crowd Sunday."

  1. We have always had a soft spot for St. Francis, but we're not sure how to feel about this. Maybe we should take our mice to be blessed ... although they might not care to be anointed.
