The Foolproof Marriage Proposal (If She Says No, Blame the Dog!)

Watch one smart lab help his owner pop the question in a heartwarming way

Figuring out the perfect way to propose to a woman is probably one of the hardest things a man will ever have to do. So one guy called on man's best friend for a little assistance. Watch the video below!

John, who lives in Australia with his now-fiancee Sarah and their dog Spud, had the pup do all the hard work for him. When Sarah calls the dog upstairs, she has no idea that the 18-month-old Labrador -- well, and John -- is about to give her the gift of a lifetime! It’s a truly sweet moment when Sarah’s jaw drops at the surprising gesture.

We think this proposal was much more romantic than DJ Khaled’s offer to Nicki Minaj. Even more romantic: John filmed it all for Sarah’s family, who lives in Scotland, to see it. Congrats to the couple!
