Including your beloved pets in wedding ceremoniesFlounder and the glowing bride start down the aisle…  But, wait – Flounder suddenly has an itch – a really bad itch – one of those itches that he must tend to immediately, making him moan and groan and then shake all over.  A chuckle escapes from one of the guests – then another…

Okay, Flounder is ready now and they again proceed down the aisle to the grinning groom.  Halfway there, Flounder notices that some inconsiderate onlooker is sitting over his favorite bone burial ground and he must go, at that very moment, to dig and dig and dig until at last, he grasps his prize bone in his jaw.  A snicker, giggle, an outright guffaw from the crowd, but the bride is undaunted, waiting patiently for Flounder to finally finish his fiasco…

The organist begins again and the two continue onward toward the husband-to-be whose face is damp with laughter.  Flounder is now in perfect rhythm with the bride’s stride and is sheepishly looking up at her for approval.  They are finally at the altar where the officiate asks “who gives this woman to this man?”.  Flounder has been instructed to softly howl “ry-roo”, and then take his seat next to Mom.  But, Flounder has the bone in his mouth and he is not going to drop it for anything.  After all, someone already had the audacity to impose on its burial ground, and there’s no way he will again jeopardize the fate of his treasured prize.

So now the wedding party is coaxing him on – “come on Flounder, drop the bone” – “here Flounder, give me the bone” – “Flounder’s a good boy, now drop the bone” – “Flounder, pleeeeze give me the bone…”  It soon becomes apparent that Flounder has no intention of dropping the bone, as he trots up the aisle to a nice shade tree where he can chew his bone shielded from the hot sun and the stares of disapproving wedding guests.  No amount of coaxing will bring him back, and as the laughter dies down, the service continues on jovially with the wedding party occasionally grinning and glancing Flounder’s way.

At the reception, guests recount the humorous wedding events, and the memory is one they will not soon forget.  Think of the stories they’ll tell their friends, and the bride and groom will tell their children and grandchildren…  Why the pictures themselves will be priceless…  And, as they say, “all’s well that ends well”…
