If you missed the Rrrroyal Dog Wedding Charity event Drew and I hosted because our dogs got married, don’t fret cause we have tons of photos here. Also, not only did we Rrrraise tons o’ cash for Foothills Humane Society all the media coverage will keep them top o’ mind now for spring adoptions! In fact you can Google “royal dog wedding” or “Saluda dog royal wedding” and find the information already on Google page 1. What great coverage for our four-legged friends. The best way to let these businesses know you appreciate their support is by buying their services in the future. (If I need to add website addresses or edit them, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment directly on this blog.) Rrrrough! Rrrrank you!

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!)
