    In Dog's book (You Can Run, But You Can't Hide) he addresses why he did not invite his daughter Barbara to his wedding - see Chapter 53, pages 291-292 (It is a powerful read - I won't go into the details). In my opinion itwas Dog's "tough love" for her that he did not invite her.

    My thoughts as well. Why wasn't she attending the wedding? Celebrate what life at his wedding? Does he even have a relationship with her.
    No they really didn't have a reletionship. Right after they found out about her passing Dog told the cameras that she was into drugs and drinking and that is why her son Travis came to live with Dog and Beth. I felt sorry for him, and to go through with the wedding after hearing such news is very honourable. He also said that, that day was to be a happy day and that while they were celebrating a marriage they were going to celebrate his daughters life even if they didn't have the best reletionship she was still his first daughter.

    I wouldn't say they didn't have a relationship; I would say that their relationship wasn't on the best of terms. Regardless family is family; Dog never appeared to disown Barbrara.

    I'm glad they went ahead with the wedding, they celebrated a new beginning; and celebrating his daughter's life.
