    In Chicago.. a group attempts to earn world record for largest dog wedding ceremony

    Organizers of a world record attempt in Chicago said they are hoping to gather more than 178 canine couples to break the record for the world’s largest dog wedding ceremony.

    Leslie Allison-Seei, chair of the Villa Park Community Focus on Unifying Neighbors Commission, or F.U.N., said she previously participated in a November 2008 attempt at the record in Oak Park, Ill.

    The attempt featured 87 canine couples, falling short of the record-setting number of 178, which was set in Littleton, Colo., in 2007.

    Allison-Seei said she wants to see Illinois take the record Saturday at Lions Park in the town of Villa Park.
