There are plenty of ways to show our pets how much we love them — we buy them special food and treats, bring home the newest toys and, of course, lavish them with affection. Caroline Golon, the human behind popular humor blog Romeo the Cat, will share the stories of pet owners who have gone the extra mile for their pets in this series, The Things We Do for Love. And sometimes, the extra mile is only the beginning!
Most brides worry about certain details of their wedding day, but Sarah Thomas had an unusual concern during her nuptials: that her dog Bentley would get up to mischief during the ceremony.
Sarah and her husband, Josh, got married on the shore of Raystown Lake, Pa., with their Scottish Terrier, Bentley, by their side. “I knew there would be boats going by during the ceremony and thought Bentley might start barking at them in the middle of our vows,” Sarah said. “But he didn’t. He sat quietly at my feet the whole time. I actually had to look down a couple of times to make sure he was still awake!”
The Harrisburg, Pa., couple rescued Bentley in 2009 from their local SPCA. Sarah said Bentley basically “chose” them. “When he came out of his cage at the shelter, he walked over and sat right on top of my feet,” Sarah said. “And that was it!”
Although the couple had been together for eight years by then, Sarah recalls that seeing Josh with Bentley made her fall in love with her fiancé even more.
