Greetings from the Pekich-Bundy pups!




Hello! This letter is from Danica and Aura, the Pekich-Bundy puppies! We are writing you because we hear you will be having a blessing of the animals this month! Of course, we’re typing, because we don’t have opposable thumbs to use pens.

Aura (pictured left) is a shepherd mix who was adopted at 10 weeks old. Her former owners discarded her (and her litter mates) in a river, and she was rescued by a man living under a bridge along the river. Aura was the only one who survived. She is now 11 years old and very fluffy and friendly. She spends most of her time wanting to go on walks.

Danica (right) is a terrier mix who was adopted at 7 months old. She turns fifteen in October and is blind and deaf, and still gets around pretty well. She tore her ACL last year, ruining her hopes and dreams of playing rugby professionally. She spends most of her time napping.

We are excited about the blessing of the animals service on Sunday, September 18 at 10.30am outside at First Presbyterian! A blessing of the animals service comes from the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, who was known for caring for animals and nature. This is a service where we give thanks to God for creation and promise to care for the earth and all creatures. We also pray a blessing over the animals for health and well-being.

If you have a pet, please bring it! If you don’t, we hope you’ll still join us because we love people! See you there, and look forward to more newsletter articles from the pups!

Danica and Aura

PS – the following week you all will have worship at the Alma College Chapel at 10.30am for Homecoming,
where President Jeff Abernathy will preach!
