Blessing of the Animals – Bring Your Favorite Pet
Reading many comments made directing such mean spirited thoughts towards cats and dogs, the reality is, its not the cats or dogs fault for doing what is simply natural for them being a domestic pet, rather its their Owner’s fault for not training their pets and simply showing disregard for their neighbors, whether it be due to the owner’s lazyness, ignorance or out right lack of respect towards other people. Some people don’t care and put their pets annoyances over people.
Some commentors claim to be pet owners themselves and vow they love all other critters.
If the owners have no regard towards others, by letting dogs bark endlessly, roam free unleashed, not ‘curb’ and ‘pick up’, some breeds are very noisy, there are town ordinances to remind them. Ordinances can be updated. Some people use pet doors, as those encourage unsupervised freedom to the outdoors. Not a good idea cause wild critters can get indoors that way too.
Love both cats and dogs and natures critters. Cats are quiet and sweet. Dogs are your companion. Most people are responsible pet owners, its unfortunate there are a few who are not. Thats life.
I see an announcement on Village web – Blessing of the Animals, Oct. 8, 11:AM celebrating the Feast of St. Francis, at Christ Church , Cottage Pl. (across Stop&Shop). All pets are welcome.
