Dharmapuri was witness to perhaps the first ever wedding in Tamil Nadu in which a family made its pet-dog pull the bride’s wedding cart.

Thangavelu, who is a milk-trader in Dharmapuri, loves his dog so much that he considers it a part of his family and business. Apparently, when Thangavelu is sick, he uses his dog to deliver milk to his customers.

Speaking to TNIE, Thangavel said, “Mani (his pet dog) is like my son. He has been part of my family for over five years. I decided to let him pull the wedding cart for my newlywed daughter as I wanted him to be an integral part of this very special occasion.”

“I don’t care if people poke fun at me. I wanted to show that my pet had a special place in my family and I did so by giving him a role in my daughter’s wedding,” he told TNIE.
