Comment by K10DGuy:

Purdy sat there, putting up with the indignity, the injustice, the humiliation.

She was to be married off to a bulldog, named Ralph, of all things. Ralph, she thought, HAH! Named after the sound of his bark most like. Humans could be such cruel creatures. After all we do for them. We love them, we play with them, we let them think they are the masters, and for what?

So that Purdy could sit here in a bridal veil for a photo and be married off to a bulldog named Ralph.

And the kicker? Purdy wasn't even female. Would it kill the owner to lift his leg and check?

Purdy sat there, and sighed, and put up with the indignity.

The bride seems to have a long face. Does she really like the groom? Or did her mom say something?

ROFL. This is hilarious, a nice tribute to William Wegman's Weimeraners. I think it could do with some tweaking in the editing department (maybe some level adjustments) but it is adorable.
