Animals of all shapes and sizes were blessed at Dogwood Park

Representatives from Peninsula United Church spent an hour Sunday afternoon at Dogwood Park in South Surrey, blessing four-legged friends of all shapes and sizes.

Rev. Janice Young spent a few minutes with each pet brought to her at the entrance of the South Surrey dog park, first saying a few kind words then rewarding the pets with a pat and a treat.

The Pet Blessing ceremony was held from 2-3 p.m.
