British pups exchange 'I do's' at Harrods

LONDON, Sept. 13 (UPI) -- Two canines tied the knot at London's Harrod department store this week at an event that cost nearly $6,500.

The Scotsman newspaper said the "bride" -- an 8-month-old shih tzu called Muffin-- and "groom" -- a 2 1/2-year-old bichon frisé named Timmy -- apparently found love in Harrods' pet department.

"I've heard of dogs attending weddings in special outfits, but this takes things to a whole new level," Beverley Cuddy, editor of Dogs Today, told the newspaper. "It makes me want to cringe, but I'm not entirely surprised."

The Pet Food Manufacturers' Association says one in four households in Britain owns a dog. "A survey last year found some owners spent up to $37,000 dollars during its lifetime," the Scotsman said.
