EXCERPT FROM ARTICLEThe ends to which pet owners are willing to go to pamper their pets are limitless. Just ask Kim Todd, an animal masseuse.
"We have actual certificates of partnership," said Todd. "There are wedding vows. We take photos, videos. We have a minister who's a friend and pet communicator, who performs the vows, which involve an exchange of collars instead of the ring. Animals as well as people, are dressed in formal attire."
"The female dog may choose to wear a veil of pearls, she said. I planned one wedding where the animal party came in on a wagon. There was a garter toss using a bone and ball. At the end, people and dogs are dancing. They love it."
