Seeing-Eye Dogs Bring Couple Together

This might be one of the most romantic stories we’ve ever heard.

Two visually impaired lovebirds are planning to tie the knot after their seeing-eye dogs couldn’t, well, take their eyes off each other after a meet-cute in an intensive training program.

The guide dogs simply couldn’t get enough of each other during the intensive course in Shrewsbury, England in March 2012. Even when their visually impaired owners tried to keep them apart, Rodd and Venice would find each other, snuggle together under a table and give each other dog kisses.

Mere months after Rodd and Venice fell prey to puppy love, so did their human owners, Claire Johnson, 50, and Mark Gaffey, 52. The couple are planning to get married next spring. Rodd and Venice will walk down the aisle with them wearing flowers in their harnesses. At the reception, the wedding cake will be adorned with bones and paw prints.

“It’s going to be as much their day as it is ours,” Gaffey said. “They’re central to the whole thing because, at the end of the day, they brought us together.”
