A British Columbia couple love their pack of pampered pooches so much they invited the dogs to be part of their wedding.

Shandess and Jason Griffin of Maple Ridge, Canada were recently wed and not only used their two Bernese mountain dogs Holden and Arbor, Australian Shepherd mix Navi and Samoyed named Zero in their vows, they also danced with their dogs for their first dance as a married couple.

According to the Daily Mail, the couple wanted to include the dogs in the ceremony in part because they helped bring them together.

"They are part of the reason we actually got together in the first place - Jason was the only man to approach me about my dogs and know their actual breeds," Shandess said.

"Instead of asking for a date, he asked me to go on a walk with the dogs and that obviously struck a chord. There was never a wedding in my mind without them included."

This is not the dogs' first taste of viral fame. Last year, video of Jason's proposal to Shandess took the internet by storm when he chose to use the dogs to help him pop the quesiton.

More popular still was a photo Shandess posted to Imgur that showed all the hefty pups crammed into the back of a Volkswagen Rabbit.

When you're in denial about what day it is 😧 #cantbemonday #butimcold #themfeels
Monday morning🐶✨おは〜*\(^o^)/* 今日はお休み?お仕事? October 10th is Taiiku no hi, or Health-Sports Day, a national holiday. It was designated in 1966 to commemorate the opening day of the Tokyo Olympics held in 1964. According to meteorological data, this day is usually sunny every year, so it's when many people choose to hold athletic events. From the year 2000, the government changed this holiday to the second Monday of October so that people can have a long weekend. 今日は体育の日だね!ひと昔前は10月10日が体育の日で、国民の休日だったよね。これって、1964年に東京オリンピックの開会式が行われた10月10日を記念して、1966年から祝日に指定されたんだってー。この日の晴天率が統計を見ると大変高いらしく、運動会が日本中で開催されていたらしいよ。 でね、2000年度から、政府はこの祝日を連休が取れるように10月の第2月曜日に変更したってさ〜! #まるはお出かけ #トコトコトコ #まる知識

Raise your paw if you think Mondays should become a second Sunday.
