A show on ITV Network in England called, Me And My Guide Dog, followed 22 puppies and their owners on their journey, when they captured a beautiful love story in the process. The show follows the pups as they become service animals and are partnered with a human who is with them along the way.
In a promotional clip that can be seen below, we are introduced to Mark and Claire who both have no vision and rely on their guide dogs to accomplish daily tasks. Mark has been blind the duration of his life, while Claire lost her sight in her 20’s. We first meet Mark and Claire, as they are taking their guide dog pups, Rodd and Venice to training classes. In the classes the two pups can be seen taking a liking to one another and constantly nuzzling up and playing together. Eventually the strong connection between the puppies, leads to a connection developing between owners Mark and Claire.
Mark and Claire admit that the strong connection between the two dogs did contribute to their very own connection. What started out as puppy love between two dogs, then turned into a blossoming love between Mark and Claire. The pair ended up getting engaged and then married with their matchmaking pups walking the bride and groom down the aisle and acting as ring bearers. This is a truly heartwarming love story and Rodd and Venice, really were apart of the whole thing from start to finish. Watch the touching clip below.
