Xavier, the English Bulldog, has an adorable smile and was the best-dressed wedding dog, with a navy tuxedo, gray bow tie, and blue cufflinks. New York-based, wedding photographer, Ray Alvarez, photographed Michelle and Will’s wedding at Brant Lake, New York.
From Ray: “Xavier shared time with us during his Michelle and Will’s engagement session. He was SO much fun, and he also made a grand appearance and was part of the wedding party at their wedding! “
From Michelle and Will: “Xavier (named after the rapper DMX, not the character from X-men) is a six-year-old English bulldog and nearly three-year Leptospirosis survivor resulting in stage 3 kidney failure. Despite this, he’s an oddly energetic bully that greets everyone he meets with butt wiggles, and giving him butt scratches makes you his friend for life.
He spends his days chewing toys, barking at all animals on TV, and whining for attention. He loves digging in sand and wading in the ocean and has become the center of our family since the moment we saw him.”
