When Douglas Robert and Tamíris Muzini married in Laranjal Paulista, Brazil, rainy weather forced the couple to move the ceremony out of their large yard. To protect their guests, as well as the bride’s gown, from the rain the couple moved the festivities into a tent … As guests took their seats, a stray dog with muddy paws and no collar wandered into the tent, but was escorted outside. “As the ceremony started, to everyone’s surprise, it was the dog who came in when the bridal chorus began to play,” Tamíris told The Dodo. For the second time, the persistent pup was moved outside, and the ceremony carried on. But while the couple was exchanging their vows, the dog entered yet again and plopped down on the bride’s veil for a nap ― a moment captured in the photo above. “I was really surprised and thought the little guy was really cute,” said Tamíris.
“The dog laid down to sleep on my veil,” Tamíris said. “It was a very pleasant surprise for me, because I love animals. I liked it very much.” If that isn’t the truest, purest display of canine affection, we don’t know what is. Apparently, the couple felt the same way. The newlyweds invited the dog to stay and guests followed their warm-hearted example, finally welcoming the pup to the reception. But like all good romances, this love story also has a bit of mystery. At some point, the canine stranger slipped away into the night, leaving the couple longing for more puppy love. According to the Tamíris, the dog enjoyed some food from the buffet but disappeared again shortly after. After the wedding, the couple decided they wanted to adopt the street pup and make him an official part of their new family. They tracked him down after asking the neighbors and receiving a call from a woman who knew his whereabouts. The pup, who has since been named Braiá Caramelo, has finally found his much-deserved forever home. “He came home, and I showered him,” said Tamíris. “He played a lot, ate, drank water. He is very happy and slept super good the first night. “He is adapting very well to his new routine,” the bride told HuffPost. “He is very playful, needy and caring. We are so happy with him. Now, they hope their story will inspire others to adopt as well. “Here in Brazil, we have so many abandoned animals living in the street,” the bride told HuffPost. “We want to make an appeal to people to not buy animals but adopt them instead. We’re all very happy.” Congrats to the lucky couple and the irrepressible pup!
How’s the wedding planning coming, John?
John: “We’re having a slight difference of opinion. She wants a big church wedding, large reception, small orchestra, the works. I want to elope with someone else.”
After calculations I found out that my ideal wedding will cost $50k.
Now all I need is $50k and a husband.
Some men say they don’t wear their wedding band because it cuts off circulation.
I mean…that’s the point, isn’t it?
I asked my wife to embrace her mistakes. She gave me a hug.
I just asked my husband if he remembers what today is… Scaring men is easy.
