Canine Wedding To Raise Funds
Plus, it will be “off the charts” cute
Sophie and George

In Cork, Ireland, a wedding between six-year-old Bull Mastiff Sophie and two-year-old French Mastiff George will serve as a fundraiser for the Cork Dog Action Welfare Group (DAWG). The charity is raising money in preparation for its move to a new location. The rescue dogs will exchange vows on Tuesday, April 19.

 
The bride’s outfit will include lace frills, while the groom will wear a fitted vest. Both dogs will don bows. The ceremony will be a simple affair so as not to cause any stress to either dog. Witnesses will have to watch the ceremony to learn if it concludes with kisses or with licks.
 
The dogs know each other very well and are great friends, which bodes well for their future harmony. I know of no canine divorces, so I think their odds of a happy life together are far greater than for humans tying the knot. Best of luck to George, Sophie, and DAWG.
