Oh Boy! I can't believe this day is finally here!
Just look at this car that me and my boys headed off to the Abbey in —and with Mango behind the wheel in a right-hand drive. Phew! It will be a miracle if we make it to the church on time!
Guests were already starting to arrive when we got there - strolling the beautiful and peaceful grounds of Pluscarden Abbey were Stella and Taffy and BaileyBlue and the lovely Persephone.
The ladies looked gorgeous in their tartans! Moko, Ruby Bleu, Stella, Teka, Khyra and Penny chatted on the lawn...
Lacie had camped there overnight, so that there would be no way she'd miss ambushing Mango. However, once she caught sight of Molly's new brother Monty, all thoughts of Mango flew from her tiny head!
"Will you just look at him? And he's wearing my signature color!!! IT'S A SIGN!!!" she shrieked.
Collecting herself, she giggled, "Do you think he'll find my ensemble en-deering???"
Morgan, Mochi, Jazzi and Tinkerbell headed inside to admire the beautiful stained-glass windows —and each other's outfits.
While outside, Lucky and Roxy were whooping it up with the irrepressible Leuradale gals!
Miss Snickers and Gussie took advantage of the quiet in the Abbey to chat with Essex and Just Harry—and his new lucrative modeling career!
While outside, the catwalk of latest canine couture continued as Fiona (yoohoo! Clive! Here's that sweet Goldendoodle gal I was telling you about!), the impossibly leggy Honey, Kayla, a sultry Lorenza and Sally all discussed their purchases at the latest couture shows in Paris.
Whilst Dennis, Paco, Noah, Mango and Dexter showed off some moves on the front steps...Hey Noah, did you learn those steps at Chippen' Dales?
It's traditional in Scottish weddings to have pipers play the bridal party into the ceremony and out of the church afterwards. Hoppy and Spud volunteered their services and promised not to play the Laciepipes.
Here's a handsome group of bachelors who couldn't wait until the reception to begin toasting the happy couple with a wee dram!
Brother and sister Archie and Agatha hurried in - Aggie thoughtfully brought along smelling salts in her pawbag in case Archie fainted from the excitement.
The guests mixed and mingled — Abby was chatted up by Ximui while beagle gals Cookie and Cinnamon talked to Mango and Chubbs. The lovely Lucia and theBuster made a striking pair.
Ahhh, there's nothing more handsome than a bunch of strapping lads in their kilts, is there, ladies???
Back inside, Clover and Chewy looked for their seats, while Sunny and Baby Stan shared a cuddle as Piper and Carleigh looked on in their matching gowns.
International Diva and rabble-rouser Sophie Brador waited inside the doorway—who would come in first? Her long-time love Joe Stains or her newest boytoy -- Mango the Relentless Huge? (She held this come-hither pose for over an hour...)
...as did Maggie and Mitch. Hey, why the dark circles under your eyes, Mitch? And is that a bit of wooly bloomer I see sticking out of your sporan?
Eric Square Dog slipped away from his Best Dog duties to escort his lovely girlfriend Toffee to a prime seat.
My lads had changed into their wedding attire and relaxed for a few minutes behind the Abbey.
Groomsman Jake and Hamish, standing in as the Father of the Groom, shared some memories of their recent trip on the Royal Scotsman.
Officiant Mango the Relentlessly Huge and Joe Stains discussed a solution to the "Sophie situation."
Marvin slipped into his robes as one of the officiants and practiced his lines on his way into the Abbey.
And little Ares held tight to his horseshoe for Rosie. Tradition has a toddler hand the bride a horseshoe on her way out of the church to wish the couple good fortune.
The Bridal Party has arrived!!!
Lads and Lassies, please take your seats in the Abbey—the wedding ceremony will begin shortly!
