My children and I had the experience of a lifetime this morning.  I know that phrase is very over used but I don't know how else to describe it because we have never seen this one before today.

You see, we went to church this morning.  We're used to hearing crying babies.  Normally, I consider these sounds as their way of praising God.

This morning, however, was different.  Today, the sound was barking.  Seriously! 

At first, I thought "What?  What kid is making dog sounds?"  Yet, the sound didn't stop.  Sure enough.  I looked around and there was a woman shoving a dog into a carrier!  In the middle of the service.  In the sanctuary! 

It wasn't a service dog.  My father was blind.  I'm used to service dogs.  No, this was a yappy little thing. 

And our pastor thinks wearing flip-flops to church is a big no-no.  I bet we'll be seeing a "Don't bring your pets to church" announcement in the bulletin very soon.  LOL!

So, what do you think?  Has something like this ever happened to you?

Until next time, Happy Creative Time!

ever watched the episode of "The Vicar of Dibley" where she holds a service for pets and farm animals. It is funny but does remind us that God made the animals as well :) never actually experienced them in Church myself though lol
