On Dogs as a “Thing”

A recent post from Jezebel calls attention to a newly identified wedding trend (http://jezebel.com/dogs-at-weddings-possibly-eliminate-need-for-annoying-h-511067799): dogs at weddings. Beyond dogs just attending weddings, however, they’re playing central roles in the ceremonies, the receptions, and the documentation of the celebration. As I’ve studied weddings and seen fashions fade in and out, I think I’ve become somewhat desensitized to the evolution of trends and interpretations of traditions. Generally speaking, I’ve adopted a live & let live view. It’s your wedding. You love your dog. Go for it. But the comments to the Jezebel post – wow. The post’s only been up a few hours, and people have *views*.
