Meet The Pomeranian

The Pomeranian is an, animated companion with an extroverted personality. This compact little dog is an active toy breed with an alert character and fox-like expression. Today, the Pomeranian is a popular companion dog and competitive show dog. They can come in all colors, patterns, and variations although orange and red are the most popular. These tiny dogs are extremely loyal to their owners, making them great watchdogs, playmates, and cuddly companions.  Their puffy, “pom-pom” coat makes them appear larger than the 3 to 7 pounds they normally weigh, and their foxlike face exudes confidence.
Pomeranians are very intelligent dogs that love to please. Because of their outgoing temperaments, they can be very good family dogs with the right training. Due to their small size they don't require much exercise, but are an energetic breed that needs attention from their people frequently. They possess a thick double coat, which needs to be brushed on a regular basis.

Consider adopting your "forever friend" from an animal shelter.  You will find many pure breeds in shelters. That is where we found our little man.

M'Gee has earned his Angel Wings

We are sad that we needed to say goodbye to our little man last night.  M'Gee was adopted from St. Huberts 13 years ago.  He brought our family much love and happiness.  He certainly will be missed. We are grateful to Lap of Love and Dr. Sandra Simko who made the evening trip to our home.  Her kindness and compassion gave M'Gee much comfort and leaves us with only joy and loving memories of our dear family member.

Community Pet Blessing

Mark your calendars for Community Pet Blessing!
October 4, 2014
10:00 a.m. to 10:40 a.m.
Admission: free
Come with your beloved pets to Packanack Community Church of Wayne (120 Lake Drive East) for a community Blessing of the Animals at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 4. We will gather on the lakeside lawn and circular drive for a procession of pets, acoustic guitar music, laying on of hands in blessing and celebration of all God’s creatures. Bring your leashed, crated or otherwise secured domestic critters and be part of the holy fun. If you are unable to bring your pet, then bring a photo. The tradition of animal or pet blessings is in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi’s love for all God’s creatures. Francis, whose feast day is October 4, wrote a Canticle of the Creatures: “Praise to you, O Lord, for all these brother and sister creatures.” Our animals are SUCH an important part of our lives and give such love and comfort. Anyone who shares their life with a pet knows the benefits and blessing represented by the creatures God has placed in our lives! Let's gather to give thanks and to honor the gifts we've been given on this special day! We welcome dogs, cats, birds, hamsters, lizards, any and every kind of God's creatures that you spend your life with! All species are welcome to receive a special blessing through the laying on of hands. Rain date: Sunday, October 5 at 1 p.m. For more information, call Pastor Arlene at (973) 694-0608, option 13, or email arlene.romaine@yahoo.com.
For more information, please call (973) 694-0608
