Blest Sunday: 2020 Blessing Train

Hey dearest furiends, I’s purray you all had a pawsum and Blest Christmas. Mommy and I’s had a tasty ham that a nice fireman brought over earlier in the week. We couldn’t believe it. We’ve lived here a long time and never seen anything like it befur. He said they brought Christmas dinner fur each apartment. That means everypawdy out here ate good. What a Blessing.

          Indeed baby. We are truly Blessed. I want to clear something up right quick, okay? (Raena nods) There was some misunderstanding last week. The Blessing Train is an annual event and will be back next year and the year after and so on. However, it only runs for the month of December, so today is the final ride for the year 2020. I apologize for not being clearer on our last post.

  • Beautiful! The Blessing Train has traveled ’round the world, bringing love and peace to so very many along the way ~ we believe it even made a stop across the Rainbow Bridge to visit all the Angels who chose to go there this past year, who could not be part of the train ride. The Blessing Train is a wonderful tradition, a memorable part of this season for all of us in the pet community and we are honored to be part of it. Thank you Miss Audra, sweet Raena and Angel Dezi … we hope to travel with you next Christmas! Love to all …
