Woman marries her dog on live television

Posted on Thursday, 1 August, 2019 | Comment icon 45 comments

Is marrying your dog the next big thing ? Image Credit: YouTube / This Morning
A woman has tied the knot with her canine companion during a bizarre ceremony on British morning television.
During an interview on Tuesday, 49-year-old Elizabeth Hoad told hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford on ITV's 'This Morning' that after 220 dates and four failed engagements she has essentially given up on trying to find a man and has instead settled for her Golden Retriever, Logan.

"He's saved me and I've saved him," she said. "I was broken before I got him."

The segment was then followed up by a firmly tongue-in-cheek wedding ceremony which saw Hoad marry the canine groom - who was dressed in a suit and top hat - live on air.

While the peculiar event left viewers scratching their heads, this is not actually the first time that someone has married a dog.
Back in 2009, Wilhelmina Morgan Callaghan from Northern Ireland married her yorkshire terrier, Henry. When asked why she'd married the dog, she said "dogs are better than men."

Another woman, 55-year-old Lilly Smartelli from Arizona, plans to marry her poodle-cross Bernie.

"He's always there for me," she said. "He listens, and he loves me no matter what."

"What more could a woman want ?"

You can view Elizabeth Hoad's interview and wedding to Logan the dog in the video below.

Sorry my bad, I should've added, if no other human beings and/or animals are being hurt by these people in their quest to find love or gain notoriety whatever the case may be.....Then good luck to them.   They're not picky, that's for sure.

In Christianity, the passion for animals is considered sinful, and the Christian philosopher Thomas Aquinas, along with homosexuality, attributes this to the most serious sins.The ban on bestiality in Islam is based on the Qur'an, Sunnah and hadith of the Prophet Muhammad. Hadiths provide for the death penalty for people involved in the act of bestiality. In the American Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, beginning with the 1987 revision DSM-III-R, sexual relations between humans and animals, as well as their preferences, are no longer classified as pathological unless thes...

I do hope this couple don't breed and if they do have children what would they be called, "Hairless Whackos" Will the lucky dog need a passport if they travel?

I was reading about the Princeton Professor Peter Singer, and it seems he defends bestiality. His claim is as long as the animal consents its ok.
