Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovskiy of “Dancing with the Stars” say they’ll make their dogs, Boxer Goga and mutt Randy, a big part of their summer 2010 wedding.

“Maybe they can hold the ring,” Smirnoff jokes to OK! Magazine. “We’re trying to have Goga and Randy become a couple because Goga’s a girl Boxer and Randy’s a boy. They would work well together.”

Smirnoff and Chmerkovskiy got engaged Dec. 31, and Smirnoff says the dogs have been great practice for their next big step: kids.

“Having a dog is like having a baby that never grows up, so he constantly needs your attention, he always wants to have your love and if you don’t give it to him – he voices his opinion, and he lets you know about it, so it definitely prepares you for motherhood,” she says.

“Besides anything else, it’s nice to come home to a puppy that is always waiting for you and always excited,” Smirnoff adds.

Smirnoff and Chmerkovskiy will return to the new season of “Dancing with the Stars,” which debuts Sept. 21 on ABC.

Dogs are such a big part of our lives. It seems only natural that they should be a part of the big events in our lives such as a Wedding.
