At the Blessing of the Animals event in Los Angeles in October 2009, this fat little Canadian Mountie (above) was photographed by Greg Lilly of Bubank, California. The middle photo of our Obama-lovin' mountie (below) was captured by Hans "Shadowplay" Proppe.
"Obama Perro" as the photographer named the final photo (below) is the same chubby chihuahua at the Olvera Street Blessing of the Animals, with a great portrait of his owner as well. The photo is by Kim Shattuck who described the event as a "Catholic thingymabob where people bring their animals to be splashed by a guy throwing water from a scepter while wearing a huge hat. It was all very sweet."
