Harry makes a proposal
This story of the love between a couple and their loyal pup warmed our hearts in the office!
Last year, Amy and her partner adopted Harry, a black lab, soon after moving into a new home in Diamond Creek. “Harry fitted into our home very well. He is the most gentle and loving dog,” says Amy.
“On my birthday last year, my partner decided to propose to me in front of all my family and friends. Harry was part of the proposal and he sat next to my partner whilst he was down on one knee. My partner then asked me ‘Will you marry us?’ and when I said yes, Harry jumped around like crazy. It was totally like he knew what was happening.
“We love Harry and couldn’t imagine not having him in our lives. He is part of our little family and we can’t wait to share memories with him, such as getting married and bringing our first child home. We would encourage anyone to rescue a dog, it’s so fulfilling knowing we have given a rescued dog a wonderful home. And we feel like he is grateful too.”
Congratulations Amy! We hope you share many wonderful memories with Harry in the future and continue to share in the unconditional love a rescue pet can bring.
