Image of a pastor giving communion
An Anglican church in Canada has become the focus of controversy after a vicar gave Holy Communion to an Alsatian-cross called Trapper.
St Peter's Church in Toronto has since been been deluged with complaints, said a report in WA Today.
Donald Keith, the dog's owner, said he took his pet to the church because he had heard animals were welcome.
Trapper went up with him when he took Communion and the priest gave him a wafer. Mr Keith said it was a "nice way to welcome me into the church".
The dog has since been banned from church by the archbishop.
