May I Please Have Your Paw In Marriage? (Updated)
May I Please Have Your Paw In Marriage? (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane
Is your schnauzer in love with your collie?

Canine weddings—dog marriage
I’d never disparage.
But prenups? Now that would be folly.
Fine Feathers, a farm in the Staffordshire Moorlands, is offering pet “weddings” for people who want their dog, cat, or farm animal to marry its mate. I found this gem of an oddball story in the weird news feeds, which are regularly updated on my offbeat news page.
NOTE ABOUT THE UPDATE: I decided I didn’t like the last line of my limerick and have replaced it with a new one. (The old one was “But please don’t let ferns marry holly.”)
