Couple days ago, Sri Lankan policemen held a wedding ceremony of nine pairs of police dogs in Kandy, Sri Lanka. Yes, you read that right, a dog group wedding. Since then, Sri Lanka police have apologized, but people are still up in arms. Basically, Sri Lanka’s culture minister was upset about the event and demanded an investigation. According to an AP report, “the dogs dressed in shawls, hats and socks were placed on a decorated platform like those used in traditional weddings.”
Folks, this was as serious of a wedding as it can be! Check this out:
They had an official to register the “dog marriages” and the witnesses were veterinary surgeons, medical doctors, top police officers and the public. Once the ceremony was finished, the dogs were off to their honeymoons. DOGGY HONEYMOON!
Here’s the thing: as much as people may think that the ceremony was disrespectful or that it undermines traditional marriage, I am pretty sure those dogs will live long and happy lives with their mates.
