Man Marries His Dog

By Robert Paul Reyes

"An Australian man has surprised friends by getting married - to his pet dog of five years, a golden Labrador called Honey.

Twenty-year-old Joe Guiso said the "marriage" ceremony performed by a friend in the Queensland town of Toowoomba. It was simply a creative and light-hearted way of bringing together family and friends.

"This was just an event for my friends and I to get together," he told AFP on Friday. "It really was fun. We all dressed up in suits and everything." UPI

I`m guessing that Joe won`t get all bent out of shape if someone tells him that his "wife" is a real "dog".

I have two dogs, a male and a female, but I wouldn`t marry either one. I show them my love by giving them hamburger meat and bones. But, I willnot marry them.

Joe said that this was just an event for him to get together for his friend. Dude, you can get together with your mates by going out for a few drinks.

Joe has been with Honey for five years. That is a longer time than the average marriage lasts. Maybe Joe`s mock wedding ceremony isn`t such a stupid idea. But doggone it, I will never marry my pooch.
