A Fairy "Tail" Wedding
15 September 2006

A wedding was recently held at Harrods, one of the world’s poshest and most expensive department stores, which had all the elements of an extravagant celebrity wedding- a horse-drawn carriage, lavish wedding cake, immaculate white wedding gown and veil and numerous photographers and cameramen.

Except the bride and groom were no pop stars or Hollywood big shots. The bride and groom were actually two canines.

On September 13, the bride Muffin, an eight-month-old Shih Tzu, was married to Timmy, a two-and-a-half year old bichon frise, in a ceremony held at the pet department of the exclusive store.

The wedding, which cost £3,500 or roughly 331,924.97, was sponsored by Harrods. It is part of the store’s “Anything is Possible” season.

The dogs’ owners, Dominique Day and Rachel Little, were of course in attendance. According to Miss Little, Muffin’s master, the two met when Muffin was having a coat fitted for her at the store. The owners served as unofficial matchmakers when, seeing how the two dogs got along, they decided to let the dogs go on frequent walks together.

The wedding, the first between animals, was just like any other nuptials, the owners and other observers noted. The bride and groom shared a cake and a kiss before they left on their horse-drawn carriage.

There is no word yet as to what the new couple’s living arrangement would be like now that they’re married, but Miss Little stated that the two would most definitely keep on seeing each other.  would like to acknowledge the following source for this article:
