Wedding In Jeopardy After Dog Eats Groom’s Passport
The planned Italian wedding of a Boston couple may have to be put on hold after their dog ate the groom’s passport. WCVB-TV reports that it has turned into a wedding nightmare.
Donato Frattaroli and Magda Mazri filled out their marriage paperwork at Boston City Hall on Thursday, two weeks before they were due to get married in Italy – and just days before they were planning to head to the country to start preparing for their big day. However, just hours later, their dog threw a wrench into their plans.
Frattaroli said, “Our extremely cute 1.5-year-old Golden Retriever decided that maybe she doesn’t want us to go away to get married. So she hopped up on the counter and decided my passport was a nice new toy to play with. Shame on me for not putting it in a drawer.”
Now the couple is scrambling to get Frattaroli a new passport in time for the nuptials. Mazri has been exchanging phone calls with Representative Stephen Lynch’s office in hopes of speeding up the process, she says. Meanwhile, Frattaroli has made an appointment to get a new passport – but the earliest one he could find is next Thursday in Atlanta.
“To be perfectly honest, I don’t think I would leave that office without one,” Frattaroli says. “The most important day of my life is coming up, I’ve got to make sure I’m there for it. It’s almost like the ‘dog ate my homework’ excuse but with slightly bigger ramifications.”
