By LYNDAL JEFFERIES Sweet as Sugar: Tom Anderson, 8, with Bijon Frise Sugar dressed in an All Blacks doggy shirt. The St Francis service for the blessing of the animals at St Peters Church in Oneroa on Sunday was no ordinary affair. A choir dressed as kittens, rabbits, cows and dogs was accompanied by yodelling dogs and a real Franciscan monk from Auckland. It was the best church ser- vice I've ever attended,'' according to eight-year-old Tom Anderson. Tom took Bijon Frise Sugar along to the service dressed in her All Blacks dog coat in the hope that the service might bless her with good health and a long life.'' Sister Shout sung Talk to the Animals dressed in ani- mal attire as Pippa the Staffordshire bull terrier yodelled along in near perfect tune accompanied by yaps and yowls from other dogs. Franciscan Bronwen Muir talked about St Francis of Assisi's life at the end of the twelfth century, his love of animals and the environment and the bridge that people's pets make with the rest of creation''.
