Interfaith Blessing of the Animals, Long Beach, CA - 05 OCT 2013

Took our babies and headed over to Granada Ave (near the dog beach) for the annual Interfaith Blessing of the Animals.
There were doggies of all sizes.
As well as cats and several farm animals.
My friend, Kate, was holding a duck...until it ate her earring.
And there was this lovely creature:
The crowd was good size, so we took the dogs to the beach for a run before it got dark.
Judging from the way they slept on the ride home, they had been well blessed!
