I'm not squealing/happy crying/generally bursting with joy, you are. 😭

Disclaimer: I am a self-proclaimed dog freak. My life pretty much revolves around my dog (she's a Toy Australian Shepherd named Chicken and she's perfect)—playing with her, thinking of new and exciting adventures we can go on together, telling her about my day, talking about her to anyone who will listen, and just generally thinking about her all the time. Fellow dog freaks will know what I mean.

So if I should ever find myself walking down that long aisle, there's no question Chicken would be right there with me. It just wouldn't be right not to include my favorite person (ahem, animal, life partner, ride or die...whatever) in my wedding. As it so happens, after doing a quick Instagram search (by which I mean five hours of the best day I've ever spent at work), it seems as if I'm not alone. In fact, here are 44 couples who were, to be totally honest, completely out-shined by their pups on their wedding day, making for some truly delightful photographic moments (I dare you not to shed a happy tear or 50).

Because when it comes down to it, we all know: doggo is life.

What better way to express your love and excitement than with an ear kiss?

Brides? What brides? All I see is a v good looking brussels griffon.
