The bridegroom wore a top hat and tuxedo.

How quaint. I can't believe the time some people have on their hands! Did they have attendants, too?

Someone emailed me the following yesterday! LOL!

SINGLE BLACK FEMALE seeks male companionship, ethnicity unimportant.
I'm a very good looking girl who LOVES to play.. I love long walks in the
woods, riding in your pickup truck, hunting, camping and fishing trips,
cozy winter nights lying by the fire. Candlelight dinners will have me
eating out of your hand. Rub me the right way and watch me respond. I'll
be at the front door when you get home from work, wearing only what
nature gave me. Kiss me and I'm yours. Call (404) 875-6420 and ask for
Daisy.

Over 15,000 men found themselves talking to the Atlanta Humane Society
about an 8-week old black Labrador.

Men are so easy.

No, this represents traditional family values.

From the article: "The ceremony had its origins last year, when the two dogs were mated by their owners. But the owners' children wanted to know how the pair could have puppies if they weren't married."

They first met at the fire hydrant on Maple Street and before you knew it, they were making flippy-floppy in the woods behind Mr. Daniel's yard on Elm Street. Third-rate romance, low-rent rendevous. Tyson Beckford Spag will no longer be trying to hump his owner's leg. Honeymoon is tentatively planned at Foxwoods Casino - contingent upon the lease laws there, of course. Hope the workers at the reception hall brought plenty of pooper-scoopers to work with them, they are going to need them.

Have a HOWLING good time, doggies.

I wonder how long before "hubby" finds himself in the "dog house".

I think it's odd too, however, anyone willing to go to those lengths for their dogs must treat their pets very well. Anyone who treats animals well can't be all bad.

I can just see a new legal field in the area of canine divorce.

I agree!

I think we are drawn to dogs because they are the uninhibited creatures we might be if we weren't certain we knew better.

They fight for honor at the first challenge, make love without moral restraint and they do not for all their instincts appear to foresee or dwell on their own death.

Sick minds think alike. I was thinking of a very similar punch line from Norm MacDonald on SNL's Weekend Update from years back.

We thought our cat Sammy was sterile because when we got him he was sick and after that showed no interest at all in Angel the cat. Well we were surprised when after several years our house cat Angel was pregnant. So the kittens would not be illigitimate we quickly and quietly had them married. On Easter day she had 3 kitties with big heads that we named Meshack, Shadrack and Abendigo. And we then nuetered their dad promptly.

Well, son, when a boy dog loves a girl dog ... Suffering from a bad case of cold feet, Tyson the Yorkshire terrier is dragged down the aisle to his waiting bride, Tatiana the Maltese, in Derby, Conn. It's not as if Tyson's not intimately acquainted with her; the two were mated last year. Now the owners' young kids are wondering: How could they have puppies if they weren't married?!

are you suggesting dog marriages are more mainstream than same-sex marriages?

Ahh, mainstream. Who justifies anything because it the almighty mainstream? And, in some circles, dog marriages and divorces are mainstream.
