Pampered pooches Pagan and Anoushka on their wedding day. See SWNS story SWDOG: Two rescue pets have been joined in mutt-rimony with the world's first pagan wedding - for DOGS. Dog-lover John Awen met partner Pink Ali, both 45, and they instantly clicked - but worried their dogs wouldn't get on. However John's black Labrador, named Pagan, and Pink's Alaskan malamute called Anoushka fell in love at first sniff, and soon became inseparable. They bounded down the aisle in a 'paw fasting' ceremony - based on the Pagan tradition of hand fasting where a couple declare a binding union for each other.
