Charlie the dog

It’s time to tear up just a little with this heartbreaking story that broke this week from a Colorado bride’s wedding.

What Happened?

An adorable black lab named Charlie was dying of a brain tumor at the tender age of 15. His veterinarian parents lovingly decided to have him be a part of their wedding day. Problem was, Charlie couldn’t make it all the way down the aisle. Cue the bride’s 5′ 3″ sister having to pick him up and carry him the rest of the way….and the tears.

Where is Charlie now?

Unfortunately Charlie passed away a few days after the wedding. But at least he got to be a part of the wedding memories that the bride and groom will now always share.


Apparently this was dog lover’s central week because the other breaking wedding story that blew up the internet was all about puppies.

What Happened?

Some cute as a button pups crashed a Pennsylvania wedding. Ok, so they were invited, but who wouldn’t want these munchkins?! The bride is a board member of a rescue organization called Pitties Love Peace, and so she decided to bring 6 pups in on the fun of her wedding day.

What’s the Takeaway?

The bride really hopes that showing off the cutie pettuties will show the world that shelter dogs need mucho love.

Flower Girl Sweetness

Who stole the show during this Italy wedding? Why, the flower girl of course!

What Happened?

Scarlet Snow, a kiddie from Italy, was the flower girl for her older sister Christalle. Scarlet had so many cute moments, that the videos ended up going viral. It didn’t hurt that her and her family are somewhat of celebrities…

I make my daddy look good for mommy.🎩 #pittureperfect
