- Wedding: October 2017
Hey bees! We are less than 2 months away from our big day! I am getting into the little logistical details of our day. One thing that I have been thinking about a lot is our dog. We are spending our wedding night at our home, so we will be going home to our dog as well. Now for the hard part. I will be gone and at the venue from about 9AM to 11PM. My FI wont get to the venue until about 11AM or so. My sister has offered to go let our dog out after pictures, but before the ceremony. Here are my thoughts about our timeline for our dog. Please keep in mind that our Venue is less than 10 minutes from our house.
9AM- I leave for the salon
9AM-11AM- dog is playing with FI and groomsmen at our home. He goes into his kennel when FI leaves
11:15AM- Groomsmen arrive at Venue
12:30PM- First look, and pictures begin
1:15PM- Family photos
1:45PM- Family photos end, my sister drives to our house to let our dog out and feed him dinner. She will also play with him.
2:15-2:30PM- All pictures are done. Sister arrives back at venue
3:00PM- Ceremony Starts
11:00PM Arrive back home
Before I get lectured, yes, I know this is an extremely long time for him to be in his kennel. However, every day while I work, he is in his kennel, and he loves his kennel.
I also have thought about boarding him for the day, however the issue is that he is not fixed (again, please do not lecture me, my dog is extremely well behaved hunting dog who we are not planning on neutering unless other issues arise). Most boarding places will not take un-neutered males, or will keep them in isolation from the other dogs. This is not something I want.
What do you bees think? Does this seem appropriate and do-able?
Our normal pet sitters are all attending the wedding. My sister, FFIL, and Very good friends.
To end with, here is my dog. He is just the cutest, our baby!
