Today was a blessing of the animals at Do Ngak Kunphen Ling Tibetan Buddhist Center for Universal Peace in Redding. We had driven by the Center before but hadn't visited. The Center is located on 100 acres of woods and meadow. Before the blessing ceremony, Lola loved exploring the grounds. This setting was more dog friendly than the church building where Spike was blessed. Also, this blessing will extend into Lola's next lives.
We heard from a photographer who's done a series of pit bull portraits with flower crowns. After a series of prayers, we lined up for the blessing. More prayers followed, and then we headed to Putnam Park.
This was our second visit with Lola to Putnam Park. We walked the main loop which took about a half hour before returning home.
All in all, a lovely day.
