(Newser) – Arguably even weirder than the woman who married herself or the man who married his pillow: An Australian man has married his dog. Joseph Guiso wed Honey, a 5-year-old labrador, in Toowoomba this week, the Chronicle reports. Thirty friends and family members attended, and listened to vows (presumably only delivered by Guiso) including, "You’re my best friend and you make every part of my day better."

Guiso came up with the idea—and the location, a park—while on a walk through said park while a human couple was getting hitched. "I said that could be us," Guiso says. "She didn’t say anything so I took that as a yes." Guiso calls himself "religious" and claims he felt guilty living with Honey out of wedlock. Even so, he assured guests, "it's not sexual. It's just pure love." And yes, they are planning to honeymoon. Click here to read about five people who married inanimate objects.
