For Better Or For Woofs: Dogs In Mass Wedding

Dog couples have tied the knot at a mass canine wedding ceremony in Peru's capital, Lima.

Dressed for their special day in white wedding gowns and black tuxedos, about 40 pets, including several Chihuahuas and a shih tzu, were married as owners and bystanders looked on.

Ingrid Chavarri, the organiser of the wedding event, said the public ceremony aimed to encourage people to be responsible pet owners.

After witnessing the marriage of his dog, Miguel Gomez said: "Now, all that's left is for the two dogs to be together and that they will live happy forever."

Wedding certificates, that were issued to the dogs' owners by the district of San Miguel, included paw prints of the bride and groom.
