On the feast of St. Francis (October 4), in the city of St. Francis, about 40 pets and some 75 people were well and truly blessed last night at the Episcopal Church of St. John the Evangelist in the Mission district.
Dogs and their friends waited for the service to begin.
By the opening hymn, the aisle was a tangle of leashed pets.
Even rats can be loved.
There was even a gecko -- "Scout" -- who was molting.
People and pets seemed to have a great time.
