52-year-old Mark Gaffey of Westbury Park, England and 50-year-old Claire Johnson of Hanford, England are both blind. Last year, they met at a training class for their new seeing-eye dogs.
During the class, Claire's Labrador retriever, Venice, seemed to FALL IN LOVE with Mark's Labrador retriever, Rodd. The two dogs would always run to each other, always play together, and hated being separated.
So after the class, Claire and Mark met up so their dogs could spend more time together. And while the dogs played, Claire and Mark started bonding too.
Eventually, thanks to their seeing-eye dogs falling in love, Claire and Mark fell in love too.
Mark proposed to Claire this past Valentine's Day. They're going to get married next March.
