The animals received a blessing from the church, which volunteers say is a special moment.

Over a dozen therapy dogs received a special Christmas blessing today, to celebrate the work they’ve done in the past year.

The Annual Peata Therapy Dog Carol Service celebrates the contribution these therapy animals give to the people they visit in caring institutions.

The Christchurch Girls’ Choir, featuring the odd bark, sang the classic carols with all donations going to the Peter McVery Trust.
