I am probably not going in the direction that you think…I am talking about my furbabies: Bella, Jetta, and Tug. Some of you may think that I have a screw or two loose, but in my eyes the Hawk pups are a legitimate part of our family. In fact, they are our family. When we first moved in together, the joining together of my Bella and Tug with Mr. Hawk’s Jetta under one household was the first real step in creating our own little family unit. In my head I’m picturing the intro from The Brady Bunch with dogs. (I probably lost a few of y’all with that statement, right? Yes, I’m the crazy dog lady.)
Bella and Jetta
They are my protectors (from the big bad mailman), my cuddle buddies when its couch time, and my all-around companions. They are such a huge part of me and shape my daily life. So it’s only right that they be part of the day where the Hawks officially and legally become family, right?
Can’t you just imagine our little flower girl walking “B” and “Jetta-pants” down the aisle? It would be such a sweet moment.

And I love the idea of a floral collar.

And how freaking handsome would “Tuggles McGuggles” look in a bow tie, carrying our rings? My heart melts…

Having them participate in our wedding would be priceless! Alas, reality has set in, and I’m having to accept that my furry family will not be able to be present on our day. Wren has very strict guidelines: NO. DOGGIES. ALLOWED. (Just because it’s a 300-plus-year-old building and historical monument? Psh. Who do they think they are?)
And if I think about it with even more scrutiny, I know that Bella would probably squat halfway down the aisle, Jetta would be knocking people’s hands to be pet, and Tug would surely jump up on half our guests to greet them with kisses. But in my head I can’t help but dream…
Are you incorporating your furbabies into your big day? (Or do you think I’m completely loony tunes?)
