What do you do when two dogs fall in love?

You plan them a wedding, of course.

At least, that was Cyndi Rasa’s plan when her Yorkshire Terrier, Sammy, was very affectionate with his friend Chupacabra, a Dachshund.

Rasa said the idea sprouted while on a walk with Sammy when he stopped in front of his friends house and would not move until they visited with Chupacabra.

“So that evening the event planning began,” she wrote in an email to PQB News. “The very stylish wedding party wore tuxedos and party dresses and the brides gown had a five-foot train.”

The event took place on Monday, Aug. 2, and included paper invitations, a full-sized driftwood arch, doves, musicians, flowers, an officiant, tiered sandwiches and china and crystal.

“She (Chupacabra) arrived in a carriage adorned with ribbons and flowers to the tune of That’s Amore, while the groom and ‘best pup’ waited patiently under the arbor for her,” wrote Rasa.

“The guest officiant delivered a beautiful ceremony, collars were exchanged, the doves were released and the reception began.”

The four-legged guests had their own gated reception area, and all other 48 (human) guests mingled, munched and sipped champagne at the Qualicum Landing beachfront until sunset.
