|Indeed, the guests were arriving and taking their seats in the backyard wedding that Patrick had hoped for.
Friends from near and far received their invitations, typed by Mr. Remington. They happily made the journey to see Patrick and Cricket marry.
One by one, they arrived at the little outdoor chapel that Colonel
Kramer created using uprights' lawn furniture. Molly and the
terriers decorated the yard with flowers, ribbons and bows.
Colonel Kramer helped Mr. Remington to sit in front so he could welcome
Chloe and Mattie drove with "Handsome Hank" from Pennsylvania.
Furlock Bones, Agent Beak and Jamesie came, and the pups that Wiggle helped
to rescue, Brady, Heidi, Gracie and Chester all came too.
"No one is going to believe how big you are!" said Mr. Remington with
an approving ding of his bell.
"Is the bride coming?" asked Baby Gracie in awe.
