A 47-year-old British woman, unhappy with the men in her life, decided her dog was her ultimate “life partner" and that she would let the canine and the world know it.
“Sheba had been in my life for years, making me laugh and comforting me when I was feeling low,” Amanda Rodgers told Metro of her terrier. “I couldn’t think of anything more I’d need from a life partner.”
The Londoner said that she even proposed to her pooch.
“I got down on one knee and proposed. I could tell by her tail wagging that she said 'yes.’”
Rodgers, who was married briefly 20 years ago, did not conduct the August 2012 marriage ceremony by halves. Two hundred people toasted Rodgers and Sheba’s nuptials in Split, Croatia.
“I’d dreamed of a perfect wedding dress since I was small, I made it myself for the ceremony. The day was wonderful, more fun than the marriage. I gave her a kiss to seal the deal and then everyone threw confetti. It was a wonderful moment,” said Rodgers.
“I know the wedding to Sheba wasn’t real in the legal sense,” she added. “But it was a nice way to mark what Sheba means to me. Sheba’s never unkind to me and she’s always happy.”
