Wedding Dogs In People Magazine!



I wasn't going to write about this for a while yet, but a story in the current People Magazine forced my hand. April 15 will see the release of Wedding Dogs: A Celebration of Holy Muttrimony. As you might guess by the title, it's a photo album of weddings in which dogs -- from Doberman Pinschers to Chihuahuas (actually, quite a few Chihuahuas) -- served as everything from ring bearers to maids of honor to reception crashers. The concept was dreamed up by Sydney, Australia-based photographer and writer Katie Preston Toepfer. Yours truly contributed the text that accompanies the shots. One of my favorites was a bulldog puppy named Romeo who sat for some pictures with his owner, the bride. But instead of behaving, he instantly grabbed the hem of her wedding dress and started tugging.

The book won't officially "drop" until April, but of course there's no law against ordering one in advance. You can also take a look at the Feb. 18 issue of People, which features several Wedding Dogs photos. If you can't find it, visit Katie Preston's Wedding Dogs Facebook page to take a look.
