Trickey customer still gets blessed

Trickey Junior wasn't quite as keen on getting blessed as all the dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs that turned up at All Souls' Bangalow last Sunday for the annual Blessing of the Animals.

The blessing was held mostly indoors for the first time anyone could remember as a few sprinkles of welcome rain fell.

Trickey Junior is the offspring of the calf famously rescued from drowning by Fr Russell, who dived fully clothed into the freezing nearby creek to pull her out.

The Blessing of the Animals marks the feast of Saint Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals.
