Saluda (Dog) Rrrroyal Wedding

April 27, 2011

I just got interviewed by WLOS, our local ABC TV affiliate about being in my dog’s wedding. Yes, that’s right. You think I jest? You see, I’m not only Michelle Tennant, I’m also the personal assistant & publicist to Duchess Lou Lou (aka my rescue Siberian Husky from Foothills Humane Society). After I was interviewed by CNNMoney about how international PR might affect Kate Middleton’s family business, my business partner had this grand idea … host a local Rrrroyal Wedding (a canine royal wedding) to raise money and awareness to benefit our favorite dog shelter, Foothills Humane Society, the one where both our dogs were but mere paupers begging for a home at one time. See the evite about this dog royal wedding and read all about the groom, Duke Brodee. Kate Middleton encourages charity donations and we love PR, so why not help out some furry friends. (Speaking of fur,  Duchess Lou Lou has a terrible case of “wedding shedding” due to nerves. See the video.) Friends all around Saluda, like Joni of the historic and recently renovated Saluda Inn and Wine Cellar decided to pitch in wine tastings, silent auctions and private showing of the real wedding on Friday, April 29, 2011 from 6:30 to 10:30 pm. We even have music thanks to Mr C’s Mobile DJ. Duchess Lou Lou got in top trim shape for her dog wedding by eating organic dog food this year and watching portions with Yum Yum Dishes (she really did!). I’m such a proud husky mama! My baby’s wedding even gotten ink in a local paper, The Tryon Daily Bulletin! Watch for more news coverage of this very special occasion. Dogs, cats, horses and animals of all kinds can celebrate. Don’t forget, Saluda NC is the home of the world-famous, annual Coon Dog Day. Woof! (Please give rrrrrichly to the Humane Society, even if you can’t make it!)
