Dogs, cats, photos, and even a stuffed toy dinosaur named Bumpy were individually blessed by Reverend Laurie Durgan. Each animal was given a certificate, a medallion for their collars with the saying “I am blessed,” and treats.

Durgan said this was the first time she had been able to bless a dinosaur in all her years of taking part in animal blessing ceremonies.
