Bless Your Pets, Sat Oct 4 @ West Coast
It is time once again to have a gathering of four-legged friends again. Our last gathering in March was a success and it has spurred us to organize yet another event. This event will be a meaningful one. To celebrate World Animal Day (http://www.worldanimalday.org.uk/), we would like to hold a Blessing of Pets Ceremony. Coming October 4th is the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi (as well as World Animal Day) , whose love for animals is legendary. This custom of Blessing of Pets is conducted in remembrance of St Francis' love for all creatures. A Catholic priest, Fr Romeo Yu-Chang, shall preside over the ceremony and our precious pets will be given a blessing. ALL RELIGIONS WELCOME!!!
The program for that day will be as follows :
Event : Blessing of Pets (In Celebration
of the Feast Day of St. Francis of
Assisi & World Animal Day)
Time : 3.30pm
Date : 4th October 2003
Venue : West Coast Park Dog Run (To

Along with this, there will be a birthday celebration for all October four-footed furries. All October babies will have a surprise. Please let us know and bring proof of birth date (eg,health booklet) of your pet for a surprise birthday gift.
I m also pleased to have a training demo by Dinoboy to demonstrate how a little love goes a long way to train your pets. Please check out their website to learn more at http://www.dinoboy.com.sg/training/index.html
