  1. That’s sooo great, Melanie. On a kinda, sorta related note, I attended a basset hound wedding here in L.A. several years ago. The dogs were in bride and groom appropriate attire as expected. There was an ‘enlightened’ priest (that put on an Irish accent) and nun that performed the ceremony, with a sprinkling of holy water and a real wedding cake—for people. It was intentionally all vanilla, so each dog could enjoy a sliver.

    The lady is male dog’s pet mommy, and her boyfriend the female’s pet daddy, and they live in their separate residences but with plenty of play date time. A second one was supposed to take place awhile back but Covid fears wrecked it, like everything else. No reschedule plans either. Just to mention, the first one was respectful to nuns, priests, and the Catholic church.

  2. At our wedding our dogs were best man and maid of honor and of course they were with us for the honeymoon.

  3. They’re dogs, what’s not to love here?! Okay, Number 3 down by Zeis is my favorite. A crying groom having to leave his crying hound at the pound? Priceless. Then # 5 down by Betty Woods of the dog holding on to his pet daddy during a scary storm. This seems like the first cartoon I’ve seen here by a female cartoonist.
