Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love, they depart to teach us about loss. A new dog never replaces an old dog; it merely expands the heart. If you have loved many dogs, your heart is very big.

–Erica Jong

 

Horned God and AnimalsAll of us have pets in our life that brings us great joy.  Blessing a pet creates a ritual that binds a pet and a family together, celebrating the bond between human and animal.  Blessing a pet is also our way of asking the Gods to protect and keep our pets so that our time with them will be a long and happy journey.

HPS:            Tonight we are make a charm bag for the protection of our pets.  In your pouch add a bit of each of the herbs. Once you are home you can add a bit of your pet’s fur or feather to the pouch to reinforce the blessing.

 

All:               O Great Horned God, father of the woodland,

and loving lord of all creatures that walk, crawl, swim and fly.

A threefold blessing I humbly ask of thee on the Full Wolf Moon night:

May (pet’s name) life be a long, happy and healthy one.

May (s)he always receive your divine protection.

Watch over him/her with every step (s)he take.

Help me protect him/her and strengthen the connection of love between us.

Let this charm be blessed, to hold the energy of protection.

And when our incarnations in this world cease to be,

may we forever be reunited in the great Wiccan otherworld

known as the Summerland.  Blessed be!
