For the pet lovers here, do you attend dog shows and pet festivals? It is our custom to attend the pet blessing every October. There is a parade that we can participate in plus the pet stores that give gifts to the participants. We always come home with a bagful of dog treats and accessories. And since I have 3 dogs, I get 3 bags of goodies. It’s a nice experience because you get to enjoy the crowd and then receive freebies.
