If you are like me, your dog is a huge part of your life. Buckley is literally my best friend (my apologies to my human friends, I hope you’ll understand). When my boyfriend Kristopher proposed marriage to me, I knew right away that I wanted Buckley in the wedding. Kris, who loves Buckley as much as I do, agreed Buckley could be a flower girl.
More and more couples are including their pooches in their weddings. In fact, Buckley will follow in the “paw prints” of dogs with parents like Gwen Stefani, Adam Sandler and many other celebrity dogs as she trots down the aisle. So maybe we are in vogue!
The big question all along has been deciding what Buckley will wear. I may have thought more about her dress than my own!
My mother comes of a long line of seamstresses, and she will be making Buckley’s dress. Yet, I’m letting the PetSafe fans decide on the actual dress. The dress that is the most popular choice will be the one the Buckley wears on the big day. Don’t let the colors throw you; the dress will be made in a light blue or yellow fabric.

Enter a comment below to let me know your favorite of the three dresses above. I can’t wait to see what you pick, and I’m so thankful for having this big decision off my shoulders and on to yours. I’ll be announcing the winner on April 6!
I’m also thankful to live in Knoxville where we have many dog parks. The PetSafe Downtown Dog Park will make a fantastic site for our nuptials and of course it’s dog friendly.
Don’t have a dog park in your town? The PetSafe Bark for Your Park Contest is coming soon and you could win $100K for your city to build a dog park.
