Dogs are truly man’s best friend — and now spouse.
A 33-year-old man in Southern India married a female dog in a traditional Hindu ceremony in an attempt to atone for stoning two other dogs to death.
Selvi, the ten-year-old stray dog, was bathed before the ceremony and wore a sari. The two were married at a temple after an astrologer said this was the only way the man could get rid of the curse of killing the two dogs.
The man said that he had been suffering from physical ailments, including a stroke and paralyzed arms and legs, since he killed the dogs 15 years ago.
He promised that he would take care of Selvi for the rest of his life.
The family and the groom had a feast to celebrate, while Selvi received a bun to eat.
