Newlyweds Cancel Honeymoon to Search for Their Lost Dog

Newlyweds learned their dog went missing during their wedding ceremony and decide to cancel honeymoon to go out and search for their pet instead.

If you had planned a destination wedding and your beloved dog goes missing in the middle of the ceremony without you knowing it, would you cancel your honeymoon once you learn the devastating news? Would you go out and search for your dog instead of going off to enjoy your honeymoon? Jade and Michael Peel canceled their honeymoon, and fortunately their four-year-old Rhodesian ridgeback named Marley turned up save and sound four days later.

The Peels had planned the perfect destination wedding for New Year’s Eve near Torpoint, east Cornwall. Marley came along for the celebration and while his owners were tying the knot he was at a local kennel. Unfortunately, as Jade walked down the isle to say “I do,” the dog escaped the kennel and got lost in an unfamiliar place.

The newlyweds’ family learned the news as the ceremony took place, but to not spoil the wonderful event, they kept quite until the next day. When Jade and Michael learned Marley was missing they immediately cancelled their honeymoon and the remaining of their two day wedding celebration. The only thing they wanted to do was find their dog.

Fortunately, their wedding guests joined the search and Marley had 140 people searching for him. Four days after going missing Marley was found.

“[Marley] saw us and ran to us and jumped in my dad’s van,” Jade told The Mirror. ” It was so emotional. We were just overwhelmed. I think he was trying to find us.”

Even though the Peels’ wedding and honeymoon were ruined, they are happy Marley was found and is back with them where he belongs.

  1. How could I possibly enjoy a honeymoon? How could I ever respect my new husband if he insisted on a honeymoon despite the ‘baby’ missing? ?

  2. I would go looking for my pups as soon as I knew they were missing. And if I were already on my honeymoon and found out, I’d come home to look for them.

  3. My “day after the wedding” was cut short because our Siamese cat who was staying at my Mom’s got lost in the woods. Pets are family.

  4. I would do the same thing. I wouldn’t be able to enjoy myself knowing my dog was missing. You can always go on a honeymoon at a later date. So glad the dog was found. Best wishes to all of them.

  5. Oh It’s on for 100% we are going looking for our dog!! We once waited on spending money we had on the purchasing if a new washing machine because our baby( dog/Peanut) had been diagnosed with a severe hip disease and might be in need of hip replacement surgery.

  6. Yes! My husband (at the time) was fired from his job when we were called at work (at night) and told by our neighbors that our dogs ran through our doggy door and dug out of our fenced yard during a thunder storm. He left work and drove 1/2 an hour straight home and found them in pouring down rain at midnight. He found our doggies and he subsequently built a 1/2 a million dollar business. They lived with us for another 10 years and I wouldn’t change a thing!
