WTF Wednesday

21 Aug

Here comes the bride…all dressed in white….wait…what?

That’s right, apparently there is an entire industry devoted to dog weddings.  

Certainly no Vera Wang…

We love our dogs.  We really do.  But we’re not going to throw a wedding for them.   Can a dog even consent to a wedding?  What does the honeymoon look like?  Do you get them questionable dog toys as a gift?  Too many questions and even more weird answers. What was that about the sanctity of marriage again?

    Well, thanks to you, we know what kind of questionable toys to buy them.

    I just hope some of these folks with too much disposable income share some dollars with pets in need.

    I know of a few dog “weddings” that were basically parties thrown as benefits for non-profits. Like, the “dog wedding” was the theme of the night in the same way other fundraisers might use “poker night” as a theme.

    I work for a dog food company. we sponsor dog weddings in pet stores all too often. It is a bit ridiculous even to me, someone who cries at all weddings, but they are basically adoption events. bride and groom and wedding party are all adoptables from local shelters and rescues. The first one we held in NYC some hanger-on looking for free goodies asked if they were going to “mate” and if she could buy a puppy. Really? it is a RESCUE event… they want to prevent puppies!! oy.

    The only dog weddings I’ve seen have also been fundraisers for rescues. No harm in it.

    Valid questions, but then if you think on it a little longer… wait for it… what’s not to love?

    With a what, 58% divorce rate, who wants to get married? Dogs probably would be a lot better at marriage than humans, but why not just live together?! 😀
