Pawpawdog wasn't supposed to be part of their wedding. But when Holly Guiglielmetti and Keith Dreizler of Safety Harbor walked out on the dock to exchange vows July 7, the shepherd-border collie mix followed and sat beside them throughout the ceremony. "Our new life together includes the dog, so it was perfect," said Holly, who rescued Pawpawdog as a puppy from a shelter five years ago. A notary married the newlyweds on a dock behind Keith's mother's home in Indian Pass in the Panhandle. "It was a beautiful, sunny day - very quiet and peaceful," Holly said. A second marriage for both, the couple has known each other for some 17 years. She is a special ed teacher at Calvin Hunsinger School in Clearwater and Keith is a manager at Structall Building Systems in Oldsmar.
