Couple sacrifice their holidays so their dogs can marry
A couple have sacrificed their summer holiday so that their beloved dog Sheena, could marry her doggy lover, Gethin.
Sheena, a six-year-old German Spitz, married her one-year-old Pomeranian partner in the £500 doggy wedding.
The two pups met at a dog show just eight months ago and their respective owners knew it was love at first sight. Sheena’s owner, Sue Doherty, said: “They share toys and food and always play together so we know they’re meant to be together.”
Sue Wilding, owner of toy boy Gethin, said: “Sometimes Sheena plays hard to get, but she’s only teasing. It’s just a case of lady and the tramp.”
The event cost over £500, with money undoubtedly going on dog grooming equipment, a cake, dresses and of course, flowers and dog biscuits.
According to dailymail.co.uk, guests included a pair of Yorkies and an Irish Wolf Hound, all dressed in formal attire.
Ann Clark, an animal registrar at Kit-Katz Cattery, read the vows: “I promise to bark when you bark, to run to the door when you do, I will share all my toys, treats, bones and bed with you.”
Holding back tears, Miss Doherty told the Mail: “We put every spare minute into planning this wedding. I don’t know what to do with myself now.”
It is estimated that Britons spend £20,000 on dog weddings each year. Speaking on yahoo.com, one commentator said ‘It’s totally weird.’
