Your Afternoon Animal Fix Plus Blessing of the Animals this Weekend

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please shoot me an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 3-4 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit.

“Dear PoPville,

I know there are tons of animal lovers on PoPville, so I was hoping you could put up a post on DC area Blessing of the Animals events this weekend for the Feast if Sr. Francis of Assisi. I know the Washington National Cathedral and Franciscan Monastery host events, but are there any other churches with plans?”

If anyone knows who else is having a pet blessing event please add to the comments here.
