Pet Blessing - October 6, 2013

You already know that I am a proud owner of 2 cute toy poodles named Summer and Autumn that I treat like they are my own child. -Very normal! I also work in Eastwood City, a very pet friendly place wherein they allow pets inside malls and other establishments. Eastwood City is also very popular for organizing pet friendly events. One of which is the Pet Blessing that is held every first Sunday of October during the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the Patron Saint of Animals.

I already had both my dogs blessed 3 years ago but I decided to attend this event anyway. This time, I only brought Autumn with me. I attended the event with my colleague and her dog Hachiko, a Japanese Spitz and Pomeranian mix.


Upon registration, they gave us a free goodie bag and a coupon to claim their Baptismal Certificate 2 weeks after the event.(Yes! There is a Baptismal Certificate) The event started off with a Pet Parade, then a few activities such as awarding of the Best Dressed Pet. After that, performances from local singers and it ended with a mass and the blessing of the pets.

I was able to take a few snapshots of the event when there were finally seats available.

Here is Autumn looking terrified or tired. I don't know.

Pets of all kinds and sizes were there. Just look at this cute little black pup, Giant Great Dane and Mr. Grumpy Cat.

It was a fun and great day to spend with your pets. Although, it was a little tiring because the place was jampacked. There were no more seats available when we got there. It was extremely hot during the afternoon then it rained when the sun went down. But nevertheless, it was a successful event as usual.

Thank you to Eastwood City for proving pet owners events like these. I'll be there again this 2014 with Summer so that she can have her very own Baptismal Certificate.
