NotFroofy wanted our Chinese Crested Powderpuff to be our ring bearer.  However, she is very shy around people, so she would have hated it.  We did, however, have a friend’s dog at our reception:

We want to so badly, but our dogs just aren’t trained enough. They get too excited and my pug would probably just pee one everything on his way down the aisle. We did however buy our pug squash a tux and our puggle bee a wedding dress and we are going to have a photographer take pictures of them so we can have them around various places of the reception. We are thinking of using them as our table numbers ๐Ÿ™‚ and have a large print out near the cake. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m attending a wedding this summer in which my friend’s Corgi is her ring bearer. I’ll take pictures if I can!

I love the idea of pets at a wedding :-)))))

I was going to have my cat, but my Mum was like, erm I don’t think that will work LOL (she could have been our ring bearer LOL).

P.S. your dogs are GORGEOUS!!!!

My boxer Artie is going to be our ring bearer. That was the second or third question we asked at every venue. Sadly he has to go home immediately after the ceremony.

I’m going to try to have my dog in the wedding! I don’t know if he’ll really be a “ring bearer” or (more likely) just walk down the aisle on a leash with one of my bridesmaids. I think it’ll work because he’ll be on a leash and I won’t be upset if he misbehaves a little bit, it will just make for funny pics ๐Ÿ™‚ The only two things I’m concerned about are 

1) Sometimes he gets it in his head that he isn’t getting the attention he wants and he’ll just stare at you and bark bark bark bark, and its totally unpredictable. I could see this happening because he’ll be so excited about all the people. We’re going to try to trouble-shoot by making sure he has a long walk before the ceremony so he’s tired, and also my DOC is a total dog-lover and she said if he starts barking I can just give her a nod and she’ll grab him and take him outside. Our ceremony isn’t in a church and it’ll be relatively casual so that wouldn’t bug me. 

2) People thinking its inappropriate. Mostly only because there is a good chance we’re going to say no to kids, and that might piss people off. So I could see those people being upset that we wouldn’t allow kids but we will allow a dog. But I think I”m just going to say “oh well.”
