Have you ever seen an image as cute as the one of these two sausage dogs getting married?Their names are Gandalf and Galadriel and they are both beautiful and in love. They’re owned by Abram and Erin Adams, 40, from Visalia, California, who decided it was time for their two pooches – who are inseperable – to make their love official in the form of a wedding. Any excuse for a celebration, eh?
It wasn’t just a quick photo opportunity, either, as the ceremony even had guests and food, and the pair were ‘married’ by the family’s cattle dog.
Initially the couple got Gandalf, two, in 2017 but he was getting frustrated being alone, so a few months later they decided to get him a girlfriend, Galadriel, one.Erin, a photographer, said: ‘We felt we needed to make their relationship official, they are obviously madly in love, Gandalf will only share his food with Galadriel, not the other dogs.
‘He growls and protects the food from them for both himself and Galadriel.
‘We wanted to wait until Galadriel was full grown and Gandalf didn’t want to marry a child – he had to wait for her to be old enough to wed.’
INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOUR PET: While other pets have positive effects on your health as well, dogs have the added benefit of needing to be walked and played with numerous times a day. This means most dog owners get the recommended minimum 30 minutes of exercise a day, lowering their risk of cardiovascular disease and keeping them in better overall shape.
Fair play.The couple who have seven children, Sabin, 22, Andrew 20, Eli 17, Madelynn 11, Sofia 10, Isaiah 8, and Ella 6, got the pups dressed in their special wedding attire, and made some snacks for the back garden ceremony.
The dogs had a great time, and appear to be delighted their love has been confirmed.
Erin added: ‘When we brought Gandalf home he was so clingy and lonely we could, not leave the house without him getting worked up in a fit – so we decided to purchase him a bride. Best decision ever!
‘Gandalf thinks he is 10 feet tall, he is a lover, a flirt, gives the smoulder and constantly has to be touching someone for a snuggle.
‘He is able to do all the tricks his cattle dog fur siblings are able to do.
‘Galadriel, as her name, is regal, royalty, head always up, always together looking her best, she is the queen of the house, and she knows she’s gorgeous.
‘They love to snuggle, bark, walk, bathe, they do everything together.’
True love really knows no species.

Use a Food Dispensing Toy for Fast Eaters. If your dog eats too fast use a food dispensing toy (we love the Kong Wobbler & Bob a Lot), or place a few tennis balls in their bowl to slow their eating. Not only does this keep them from eating too quick, it gives them a nice mental workout.
