Blessing Animals

A bit of a quagmire here - blessing our pets? I firmly believe it is anyone's personal choice to have blessed, or not, any pet or animal they want, with no repercussion through personal beliefs or opinions.

Do you have your pet blessed?

Understanding the reasoning or desire to have a pet blessed may enter some muddy waters, offend some and rally others. With a strong religious upbringing, I understand "blessing" to be:

A blessing, (also used to refer to bestowing of such) is the infusion of something with holiness, spiritual redemption, divine will, or one's hope or approval. ~ Wikipedia

So, with religious beliefs, where does blessing animals come into play? Without it, where does "blessing" come into play?

No disrespect of others beliefs will be allowed, but true debate and personal opinion is welcome in comments.
