2017 was a big year for Opal the Border Collie and Australian Shepherd mix. She joined Chris and Melanie’s family in January of 2017, starred in their engagement photos with Emma Lee Photography and even attended their wedding!
From Emma: “Opal is a little less than a year old Border Collie/ Australian Shepard mix. Her mom and dad, Melanie and Chris, love her so much!”
From Melanie: “We adopted Opal when she was seven weeks old from a family on a farm. She is a Border Collie/ Australian Shepard who is very lively, loves to run and hike. Her favorite toy is her ball that she would love to play fetch with 24/7.
She works at Amazon (goes to work with her dad) and loves to play there with all of her friends at the office. She has a sister named Pearl who is a blue-eyed white cat.
Opal would run and play fetch all day if she could! She was also the flower girl in our wedding.”
Opal is all grown up now, and you can see more of her by following her on Instagram.

What a beautiful girl with a fun-loving, kissy personality. She is the glue that will hold this marriage together and brighten it with furry highlights!

Jana Rade says
What an adorable beauty! I’d expect people getting into fights over who gets to have her! Looks like she made a good choice for her new family.
OMG stunning dog! One of my favorite breeds — I never get tired of people including dogs in their wedding plans!
I don’t either!
Bunny Allen says
What a sweet story. 23 years ago my dog was my ring bearer at my wedding so I know how special that can be. Opal is adorable. I am sure she will get plenty of love throughout her life and how cool that she gets to work at Amazon!!
You were a trendsetter! My husband and I joked about including our dogs in the wedding, but that was over 30 years ago and the venue wouldn’t allow it.
Stephanie Seger says

Rebecca, The Pet Lifestyle Guru at MattieDog says
Opal is just the most adorable little ball of fuzz!! What a lovely name too. It doesn’t seem like there would be anything that could make an engagement photo session any better, but I must confess that Opal just put the photo in to a whole new world of precious!
Kristin Rosenbach says
So much cute! Love these photos (and the subject)! You really captured Opal’s personality!
I agree Emma did a wonderful job photographing Opal and her family!
