So, my fiance and I are dog lovers and our girl (Cady) is a HUGE part of our lives, so we are incorporating her into everything–STD, invites, pictures, and ceremony!
Our STD will have a sketched version of her chasing a heart shaped ball (our invites will have drawings of myself, fiance, & the pup). This is what I was thinking for the save-the-dates.
We followed our hearts and the chase is over. Now follow us to (location) for a wedding on May 11, 2013! Love, Ashley & Mich (& Cady)
Cady’s name would be in sort of a scrawly/smaller font as if she signed it last moment.

I like the wording for your theme, but personally I wouldn’t include the dogs name in the last line where you signed your names.

I think that your wording is adorable. I know I would chuckle if I got that in the mail. And it sounds like it suits you both to the T.

@abbie017: I agree.
I love your theme but I would make it a little less out there by not signing the dog’s name.

Those are wonderful! Definitely go for it, and please post the finished results too, I’d love to see them.

@itsashleyday: Instead of Cady’s name, I would maybe look at adding a heart-shaped/inspired paw-print. I just did a search on Google and there are lots of beautiful ideas that could inspire you. These were a couple of my favourites:

I don’t think there’s any problem with signing your dog’s name with yours…if you’re big dog people, and especially since you’re encorporating her in your ceremony, I think it’s cute if she’s included in parentheses! The people you’re inviting likely know how important she is to you and love you. And I really think it’s all an adorable idea: plus, it’s the save the date, those are OK to be informal and creative!

Thanks y’all! 🙂 Very excited about these.

@itsashleyday: I think the artistic idea and wording are cute, but I, too, recommend leaving the dog’s “signature” off of the card. I think having her image is enough. It’s your wedding, not hers. Yes, pay homage to Cady and your love of dogs, but don’t make it so that it’s more about the dog than you.

This is how they turned out! (With the Lodge name taken off.)
