Canines tie the knot in Lima, Peru (Photo Credit: YouTubescreencat

Two days before Valentine’s Day, 40 couples dressed in gorgeous wedding gowns and black tuxedos tied the knot at a mass wedding ceremony in Peru’s capital, Lima. Not impressed? How about if we tell you that the brides and grooms were dogs?

After the couples had professed or should we say “woofed” their love for each other, the district of San Miguel issued marriage certificates complete with paw prints to the proud, often teary-eyed, owners. According to the organizers, the fun event is meant to promote pet responsibility among the canine “parents.” As Miguel Gomez, whose pet was part of the ceremony, later said, "Now, all that's left is for the two dogs to be together and that they will live happy forever."
