Barking? New ways of being Church?

I've never been a great fan of liturgies involving animal blessings, but this video, from Nicaragua, is so wildly off the scale it - almost - changes my mind. And if it encourages devotion and an awareness of the Communion of Saints, why not?
But even this is still preferable to puppets, clowns or liturgical dance - in any shape or form: I'm sorry but there is for some of us something which seems essentially, well, pagan, about dancing girls in places of worship.
And, no, before you ask, our new puppy won't be dressing up for mass this week. Her Sunday best is what she was born with.
