Josh's family consist of a younger 6 year old German Shepherd, that Josh helped raise from a puppy, a 4 year old new adoption addition of a sister that is a miniature rat terrier & three cats.

Pampered Pets Guide "Pet Friendly Weddings" article published


The Outer Banks Wedding Association had its annual Wedding Expo January 10th & 11th 2009. The Outer Banks Bride magazine was given to all attendees.

Some of our readers will remember "Danny, Megan & Jill pose for Pampered Pets Guide Ad" blogged on January 7th, please see the provided link http://pamperedpetsguide.blogspot.com/2009/01/danny-megan-jill-pose-for-pampered-pets.html

The Pampered Pets Guide provided the Outer Banks Bride magazine the below published article;

Pet Friendly Weddings

CAN I COME TOO??
SURE YOU CAN!

Pet friendly weddings are quickly becoming the new trend. In fact 70% if families in the US
have dogs and, according to the American Kennel Club, nearly 20% of dog owners are including their dogs in their wedding plans. They are being joined in this by celebrities like Tori Spelling, who included her pug "Mimi", as her flower girl in her wedding. Adam Sadler also included his two bull dogs in his wedding party.

There are many pet friendly venues on the Outer Banks, the most popular being the oceanfront beach. There are many pet friendly hotel/motel accommodations as well as over 2,000 pet friendly cottage home rentals and over 200 of those are pet friendly event and wedding homes.

Once you have decided to include your pet, it is appropriate to notify your guest, and we recommend booking a grooming appointment. A good bath will help keep allergens down and also pamper your special friend.
