Nazareth Lutheran Church hosted its sec­ond an­nual “Bless­ing of the Beasts” wor­ship ser­vice on Oc­to­ber 2. Canella the lab, be­long­ing to Keith and Donna Nel­son, stole the pas­tor’s heart as she jok­ingly dodged her hand left and right, of course look­ing for a treat! Nubs the ear­less rab­bit and Lucky the cat re­galed the Shep­herd School with their tale of tragedy and heroic res­cue to new homes! Alexis Klem­mensen brought her beau­ti­ful Si­amese mix cat, Daisy, clearly the ap­ple of her lit­tle girl’s eye. Belle, Con­nie and Dar­rell Larsen’s heeler was so pa­tient and good as she waited for her bless­ing. Mark your cal­en­dar for the first Sun­day in Oc­to­ber in 2017 for the next Bless­ing of the Beasts.
