    Dog Wedding Sets Record for Money Spent

    Again, surfing channels with the remote and caught a bit of this story, too. Thoughts?


    Two dogs got married Thursday night at an extravaganza to benefit the Humane Society of New York in what is being billed as the most expensive pet wedding ever.
    Bride Baby Hope Diamond, a white Coton de Tulear with black-gray markings, was led down the aisle, resplendent in her canine couture gown.
    Her poodle groom, a dapper dude named Chilly Pasternak from Richmond, Va., didn't seem too excited about the whole affair but, nevertheless, went along with the ceremony. Seven-year itch, anyone?
    After they got hitched, the cuddly couple were presented with a Guinness World Record in the category of most expensive pet wedding at $158,187.26. The luxury goods and services that went into the wedding were all donated. Guests bought tickets for the Manhattan fundraiser.

    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise

    Good cause.

    Reading through the comments, I notice a lot of people spell the word "rediculous" ... I never noticed that 5 years ago ...

    Am I that anal retentive??

    In my hurry to post some stories to talk about, I didn't read the whole thing myself. I usually like to read some comments, too; must go back and check it out when I have more time.

    I notice that people start spelling more and more phonetically. Very weird. Sorry for going off-topic.

    How would the bride have responded if she was stood up at the altar??

    No problem, Vautrin, I still do that a lot no matter how hard I try.

    Would have been amusing for the wedding official as well. Using the word "bitch" when popping the question won't be an everyday occurrence.
