Doggie biscuits

Anyone who knows my family knows that the animals are just as much a part of the family as any human!  We love our pets and spoil them to the point that when I die I want to come back as my dog!  We have a huge variety of animals...there are pot bellied pigs, cats, and dogs that range in size from 6 pounds to 100 pounds. With so many wonderful personalities, our animals bring us so much joy.  Here are some of my friends' and families' pets....

Prayer to St. Francis of Assisi,
Patron Saint of Animals
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.  Amen
Pin It!
