Dog Chosen to Be the Honored Ring Bearer at Owners’ Wedding


While most couples choose the ring bearer for their wedding from a list of nephews and young relatives, Sheree Atcheson and Sean McCrory knew from the start that only Alfie, their beloved dog, would fit the part perfectly at their wedding.

“There wasn’t a decision to make him ring bearer. He was the only choice,” Atcheson told the Inside Edition. Apparently, her groom agrees. “He’s such an important part of our family that it only made sense he’d be the one to carry the symbols of our bond,” McCrory said.

While the bride looked radiant in her beautiful white dress during the wedding, Alfie may have stolen a bit of Sheree’s thunder considering that it was almost impossible not to get smitten by the sight of Alfie in a custom-made tuxedo where the rings of the couple were attached.

While Sheree and Sean were uncertain if Alfie would carry out his duties without a hitch, the dashing dog did not disappoint. “He behaved perfectly. He ran right to us,” Atcheson said.

Alfie, who is described by McCrory as “the glue that holds us together”, has not only stole the attention of the couple’s wedding guests but he is still the talk of the town a week after.

Sheree is excitedly tweeting articles about her wedding, even though she admitted that she rarely posts about her personal life, because she is happy about “Alfie’s new found fame”.

Atcheson even created a collage of all the headlines written about Alfie being a ring bearer on their wedding and tweeted it with the caption: “This is pretty amazing. Our little dog on so many news outlets. He’s even made his way to Germany. Alfie is certainly something else.”

Based on the positive reactions Alfie is receiving, pet lovers everywhere will undoubtedly consider giving their beloved pets specials roles in their own wedding ceremonies.
