If everything goes right then the Guinness World Book will record its very first entry of the most expensive wedding of a dog in New York. At New York’s Jumeirah Essex House Hotel located near Central Park, Wendy Diamond’s dog, named Baby Hope Diamond after the owner, married Chilly Pasternak, a Virginia Poodle. The wedding was one of its kind with all the fanfare and some sumptuous meal worth $5000 for over 250 guests. It has to be an expensive and fancy wedding for after all Baby Hope Diamond belongs to Wendy Diamond who is also a television personality and an animal rights activist.
This was however not the first dog wedding for we have some canines walk the aisle in the past. Not very long ago, Louise Harris, a dog lover and the founder of Diva Dogs in Britain organised a very expensive wedding for her dog which was worth a whopping £20,000. Over 80 guests were invited to Lola’s wedding with the most ugly dog in Britain named Mugly, a Chinese Crested. Dogs have also made quite a name for themselves in the world of luxury and the richest dog belonged to Leona Helmsley, a New York hotel heiress. It was rich not the dog actually had $12 million in his bank accountas his owner had passed on all her wealth to her cute li’l dog. We had also reported on hiw your dogs can make the most of luxury in some uber expensive pet hotels, one of them being the Actuel Dogs in Paris. Well, if there’s a hotel then there also has to be a pet spa, which was launched by the daughter of the Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone. Travel with pets was also made easy with the launch of an interesting website which gave you interesting alternatives on how you can travel with your pet.
Phew! Pets do have an interesting life, don’t they? Now let’s give you more insights into this wedding of the year!
