10 Adorable Photos Of Dogs At Their Owner's Wedding


According to a recent survey conducted by Wedding Wire, one-third of dog owners include their four-legged companions in their big day. And another survey also shows that one-third of dog owners want their dog involved in their Wedding. These people can't be wrong because there is nothing sweeter than having your entire family there to celebrate your most important day. Many dog owners consider themselves and their dogs as a package deal when it comes to saying "I do!"

According to the Wedding Wire survey, 68 percent of pet people want to marry someone who owns or plans to own a pet. And once a dog lover finds a pet lover to spend the rest of his/her life with, they often find ways to incorporate their furry friend into the big day. Furthermore, of those surveyed, 76% believe that having dogs involved in a wedding would draw positive reactions from guests. In addition, virtually 100% of pet owners (93%) believe dogs should be present at weddings because they are part of the family.

One-third of people who included their dogs in their Wedding said they had their pets act as ring bearers, flower girls, best men, page boys, and official witnesses. If you're a dog owner with your big day on the horizon, the following photos will inspire you to have your furry friend witness your nuptials.

Dog, 15, lived just long enough to see his owner get married

Kelly O'Connell was 19 when she met Charlie Bear, a black lab mix, as a 12-week-old puppy at the animal shelter where she was working. The puppy was brought to the shelter after he was found abandoned in a shopping cart outside a grocery store. When O'Connell saw him, it was love at first sight. O'Connell decided to take the puppy home even though she wasn’t looking for a dog at the time.

O'Connell and her best friend grew up together and moved to Colorado from New York. Eventually, O'Connell met and fell in love with James Garvin, a fellow veterinarian. James had two sons from another marriage. O'Connell and Charlie moved in with them and they all became one big happy family.

Unfortunately, Charlie was diagnosed with a brain tumor and began having seizures one week before the wedding. When O'Connell and James made arrangements for Charlie to be euthanized, the dog stopped having seizures. O'Connell told Buzzfeed News at the time that Charlie had no trouble walking and seemed like a whole new dog during the week leading up to her wedding. Furthermore, O'Connell thought Charlie might be well enough to attend the wedding.

Fortunately, Charlie was by the side of O'Connell and Garvin when they couple tied the knot on Sept. 1, 2016. O'Connell promptly teared up when Charlie walked down the aisle to her. At this point, the happy couple couldn't help but kept shouting, 'You made it, buddy, you made it.'

The dog was apparently holding on in his final days for O'Connell, who said she could "see it in his eyes." Charlie was happily having the time of his life while his body was falling him. He was euthanized a little over a week later on Sept. 9.

That includes Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington, D.C.
