The wild and the wonderful, the great and the small, at Taylor River they were there one and all.
About 100 of Marlborough's furriest, friendliest and most loveable residents gathered at the amphitheatre at Taylor River, Blenheim, on Saturday morning for the Riverside Concert and Pet's Day Out.
The Rev Graham O'Brien, of Picton's Holy Trinity Church, started the day with a blessing of the animals."Animals give us a sense of wonder and are a blessing from God to us," Rev O'Brien said.
"Today we celebrate God's gift to us of animals and especially our pets. We remember that these are God's creatures, these are God's blessings to us. We also remember that we have been given the responsibility to care for them and provide for them." MORE>>
If this is so... tell me why New Zealand has some of the harshess dog laws in the world. Chch City Council, now that they have control of OKains Bay (near Akaroa, but a very deep peninsula) doesn't allow dogs in their campground, or on the beaches... Now tell me that God's creations are treated fairly?!
