Jilted Woman ‘Marries’ Dog: ‘I Couldn’t Think Of Anything More I’d Need From A Life Partner’!
She kissed a few frogs on her way to true love but Amanda Rodgers has found wedded bliss… with her dog.
For the 47-year-old British divorcee has married her loyal pet terrier called Sheba.They became a couple in front of 200 people in Split, Croatia, and Ms Rodgers couldn’t be happier. ‘Sheba had been in my life for years, making me laugh and comforting me when I was feeling low,’ she said. ‘I couldn’t think of anything more I’d need from a life partner.’
She married a man 20 years ago but the relationship ended within a few months.
When cupid struck a second time Ms Rodgers, from south London, wanted to do things properly. She said: ‘I got down on one knee and proposed. I could tell by her tail wagging that she said ‘‘yes’’’.
The ceremony took place in August 2012 and fulfilled all her dreams. ‘I’d dreamed of a perfect wedding dress since I was small, I made it myself for the ceremony. The day was wonderful, more fun than the marriage. I gave her a kiss to seal the deal and then everyone threw confetti. It was a wonderful moment,’ added Ms Rodgers who organises the Stranger than Paradise night at Hootananny in Brixton, south London.
‘I know the wedding to Sheba wasn't real in the legal sense. But it was a nice way to mark what Sheba means to me. Sheba’s never unkind to me and she’s always happy.’ metro.co.uk
