A love connection that started between two guide dogs eventually rubbed off on their owners! It’s a match made in heaven! This is one of the best love stories I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing.
Mark and Claire both own a service dog who gets them around pretty much everywhere and help them do their day to day tasks. Mark has been blind all his life while Claire lost his eyesight in her 20s.
Mark and Claire met for the first time at a training class for dogs. Their guide dogs Rodd and Venice are obviously smitten with each other from the very first day they met.
They frequently nuzzle up and play together. It was love at first sight for the canines, and their love for each other eventually brought their owners together.
“During the training, Rodd and Venice seemed to know something we didn’t. They were always playing together and nuzzling up together.” says Mark.
The owners admit that their service dogs’ strong connection contributed to their connection as well. Venice and Rodd led Mark and Claire to date, to engagement, and eventually, to marriage.
