A distant memory sketch of the first wedding I attended when around 10 years old. Our dog Gretchen was in heat, so she dug her way under the fence on a mission to have relations with the neighbor dog Pepe- pregnancy was a testament to her success. Well my sister decided to make Pepe do the honorable thing- so she dressed Gretchen and him up in wedding attire, invited our friends over, put the bride and groom into a shopping cart, wheeled them down the aisle- and voila- Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

(I think we put them in a shopping cart to prevent them from running away- not quite a 'shotgun wedding,' but... So make sure you spay or neuter your pet(s)- to prevent unwanted marriages).

Love this - great story, and the 'card' is such a good **** take of normal cards that you have to look twice at it.

Very clever!

Cute, cute, cute, ccccuuuuuuuttttteee!!!

Ahh, I feel better, and I can't get this wrong, cause you told me exactly what it is, which I could have figured out anyway, maybe.

Seriously though, a sweet story and beautiful artwork, and I love the perfect dimensions of the shopping cart-looks like a shopping cart.

Ha! Way cool. And yes, you've gone to the dark (read: cute) side, Luke. But in a good way. Pepe looks like a scamp. Great story.
