So, I've been toying with the idea of having one of our dogs be the ring bearer at our wedding. I don't really have any reason not to do it, I'm just not sure if I should do it.
I love my dogs and everyone who knows me knows how much I love my dogs. If it were up to me I would have them there the entire time. For Scout, not so bad, Kobi, that would be a disaster. And sadly the same goes for being ring bearer. I think if we decide to follow through on this the only choice would be to have Scout do the honour.
As much as I love Kobi, he's not ready for something like that. I can totally imagine us up at the alter, the room is quiet, we're about to say "I do" and instead there's a loud barking fit!
Scout on the other hand, he'll sleep until he's needed, and when he is needed he'll lumber on up with his dopy little grin and preform perfectly.
The only downside to Scout being at the wedding is I fear half our guests will end up covered in fur!!!
Scout's shedding has taken on an entire mind of its own. I have partially given up brushing him because he hates it so much and he never seems to shed any less! If he does end up being involved in this wedding he is going to need a major brush and bath.
Then the next question becomes, what should he wear? Should he have a dashing bow tie? Should he wear a shirt to try to reduce the amount of fur flying around? Or should he just wear a nice collar?
Any thoughts of dogs in weddings? Have you been to a wedding where a dog was present? If so, how was it? Was it a disaster or was it awesome!
