Pet owners splash over £6,000 on dog wedding

London - Two loved-up pups have been joined in furry matrimony after their owners spent more than 6,000 pounds on a lavish canine wedding, it has been revealed.

Dog lovers Ann Carter, 70, and Ernie Rubin, 67, threw a bash for 100 of their pals – and their four-legged friends – to celebrate the “marriage” of their pets, Snickers and Scruffy, the Mirror reported.

Bride Scruffy, a five-year-old Jack Russell Chihuahua cross, wore white as she wed her toyboy lover Snickers, a three-year-old Lhasa Apso.

The lovestruck pooches tied the knot after getting “engaged” on Valentine’s Day, when Snickers popped the question with a Swarovski crystal collar.

Snickers’ owner Carter, from Palm Desert, California, said the canine couple have been inseparable since they met on holiday this summer.

“Scruffy and Snickers fell in love with each other from the moment they met and when Ernie and I shared a holiday apartment for a month over the summer it was obviously how they felt about each other,” she said.

“We decided to have a wedding and we just thought it would be a fun excuse to have a little party but then we ended up sending out invitations and more and more people wanted to come and in the end it turned into this massive event,” she added.

The dogs were married under a flower decorated trellis before being wheeled down the fake grass aisle in a bespoke buggy for two.

The party, held at an exclusive country club, also boasted four-legged ushers, a wedding cake featuring the pooches’ portrait, a live band, open bar and priest to perform the “vows.”

Guests were also treated to a sit-down dinner with canine-inspired centrepieces and dog biscuit favours.

Instead of wedding gifts, Carter and Rubin asked for donations to benefit the Orphan Pet Oasis Humane Society of the Desert in North Palm Springs, raising 7,000 dollars for the charity.
