Toowoomba - A man in Australia married Honey, a five-year-old Labrador retriever, in an outdoor ceremony attended by other humans and canines on November 30.
Joseph Guiso, of Toowoomba, and the golden lab were married at dusk in Laurel Bank Park.
"You’re my best friend and you make every part of my day better," The Chronicle reported Guiso saying as part of his vows.
He chose the location after coming across a wedding in the park while on a walk with Honey one afternoon.
"I said that could be us," stated Guiso.
"She didn’t say anything so I took that as a yes."
Guiso said as a "religious guy", he felt marriage was the right choice.
He added that: "It’s not sexual. It’s just pure love."
The Chronicle reported that 30 of the couple’s closest friends and family attended the ceremony, but did not provide information on how many those were human and how many were canines.
The couple plans to go to one of Toowoomba’s parks for a short honeymoon.
Several photos of the wedding can be seen on The Chronicle’s web site.
Information was not provided on whether this ceremony was just done for fun, but there have been human-animal weddings done for serious reasons.
In India, in 2007, a man married a dog in a traditional Hindu ceremony, hoping it would atone for stoning two other dogs to death and lift a curse which had afflicted him since that time.
