Groom, 69, chooses dog to be his best man after the beloved pet helped him find love

Visiting the Dog’s Trust centre in West Calder, Scotland, Christopher was immediately won over by a rottweiler called Jack. While taking the doggo for a walk to get to know him, he bumped into Margaret, 56, who was at the rescue centre looking for a pet too. The two hit it off and after falling in love, they decided to get married.

With Jack being a major player in his love story, Christoper knew his furry friend had to be there. So he decided to put a wee tuxedo on him and make the doggie his best man. When it came to Christoper and Margaret saying I do, little Jack got involved and sneezed to give his blessings.
