Do you want to hear an amazing love story that’s not at all made up? If you answered yes, then read on.
This story is about two guide dogs who fell in love. Eventually, their blind humans fell in love, too. Yes, it’s not exactly a story about love at first sight but it’s swoon-worthy just the same.
Would-be couple Mark and Claire met at a training class for guide dogs. From the get-go, it was obvious that their canine companions, Venice and Rodd, were into each other. Talk about love at first sight.
Venice and Rodd liked cuddling together. They played with each other, virtually ignoring the other dogs from the class. According to Mark, the two dogs seemed like they were onto something.
As fate would have it, Venice and Rodd’s palpable connection quickly rubbed off on Mark and Claire. Soon enough, the two were dating, of course with their guide dogs in tow. Engagement and marriage quickly followed.
Mark and Claire admit that their romance was somehow triggered by their dogs’ intense connection. They are more than grateful for how their guide dogs guided them in their quest for love and companionship.
Venice and Rodd also played important roles during Mark and Claire’s wedding. They walked with their humans down the aisle. They also served as ring bearers.
The TV show, Me and My Guide Dog featured Mark and Claire’s love story. The episode aired on ITV England. The story inspired lots of people, especially dog lovers in search of romance.
As cliche as it sounds, love does move in mysterious ways. Mark and Claire’s love story is a testament to how romance can blossom in the unlikeliest of circumstances. The couple joined a dog training class and came out of it with more than what they’d signed up for.
