St. Francis and Me

I was blessed at St. Albert's last week. Got lots of attention from a gentle man who put water on my head and gave me a St. Francis medal. It was great fun to meet many other dogs, even a few cats, too.

Alice put the medal on my best halter. It's a reminder of how special all animals are, she said.

I never really though about the real Mr. St. Francis before. I often walk by San Francisco Bay named after him. To me it was just the smells of pickle weed, shore birds, mud flats, and lots of wind. My new medal jiggling on my halter makes me know for sure that I am special.
