SCOTTSDALE, AZ - As the debate on marriage equality continues, the Saguaro Hotel in Scottsdale decided to celebrate equal rights for all by holding the country's first ever same-sex canine wedding Thursday night.
According to a press release, the wedding was conducted by a licensed Science of Mind Practitioner, and featured a male couple and female couple dogs.
Clark and Bailey, both wired hair dachshund-Pekingese mixes, have been longtime friends. Isabel, a female Chihuahua, and Chunk, a female English Bulldog, met on a blind date set up by friends.
The couples had a dog-friendly wedding cake, marital wardrobes for both brides and grooms and treats for the two-legged attendees.
Both dog couples were gifted a night's honeymoon stay at The Saguaro, a pet-friendly hotel.
"We thought this would be a fun way to both support human rights and to let people know that The Saguaro is a pet-friendly hotel," Alan Klein, general manager at the Saguaro, said.
