To Answer Your Question

No, we didn't. Because it's ridiculous, that's why.

In a tradition carried out each year in a handful of Catholic countries, Mexicans dressed up pets in vibrant frocks and tied ribbons on their ears so they could be sprinkled with holy water by a priest reading a special animal prayer.

A chihuahua in sunglasses, a tiny albino mouse and a turtle were among the animals lined up at Catholic churches across Mexico City on Thursday for an annual blessing to mark Saint Anthony the Abbott's feast day.

while we may have some interesting traditions (no one really thinks matzah is a good idea), we haven't yet started "take your pet to shul" day....
