Nothing is too good for Louise Harris’ dog, a Yorkshire terrier named Lola. So when it came time for Lola to “marry” her fiancee, Mugly, Harris didn’t think twice about spending 20,ooo (about $32,000) on the nuptials.

The Telegraph calls it the most expensive wedding ever for a dog in Britain. (I wonder who keeps track of such things?)

Lola wore a designer dress that cost $1,700. The venue, on the grounds of a mansion in Bradwell-on-Sea, Essex, was about $4,000. You can see how the costs can add up.

Lola apparently isn’t in it for the looks. Her new husband is a Chinese Crested who has held the title of the UK’s ugliest dog since 2005. I’m not sure if Lola was glowing (it was an arranged wedding, with Harris and a retinue of internet voters making the final choice), but Harris is. She gushed to the Telegraph:

“I wanted Lola to have the perfect day. It was meant to only be a relatively small affair with 30 guests but the list just kept getting bigger and bigger because I didn’t want to leave anyone out! Just like most weddings I guess! “The day was perfect from start to finish and Lola loved being the center of attention all day..My dogs are my pride and joy so nothing is too good for them. I enjoy spoiling them because it makes me happy.”

What d’ya think, Dogsters? What’s the most extravagant thing you’ve ever done for your dog? (Not that this was “for her dog,” of course…)
