Pomeranians Michi and Mochi were among 15 four-legged couples that tied the knot at a pet wedding ceremony in the Philippines that was held along with a special blessing of pets to mark World Animal Day.
Owners Ianne De Guia and Bryan Largo, who joined hundreds of other pet lovers for the event, said Michi and Mochi – dressed in a gown and tuxedo for the occasion – were able to cement their union after recently having puppies.
The canine couples took the plunge at a park where hundreds of animals also received blessings in a drive-through and in-person ceremony from a priest who sprinkled them with holy water.
It was the first in-person ceremony since the pandemic to mark World Animal Day. — Reuters
