Woman finds true love and gets married — to her dog

The “marriage” took place a few years ago, but 47-year-old Amanda Rodgers is first going public with it now. But really, is there ever a good time to break the news to the world that you married a dog?

And we’re not saying she married a guy who’s a d-a-w-g … she married a real-life dog named Sheba, according to Metro.

“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.”

Who proposed? Well, that’s a ridiculous question. She did, of course. Rodgers says she knew Sheba said yes “by her tail wagging.”

The ceremony took place in 2012.

“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. 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.”

There’s just one question that’s left unanswered: Do they count the length of the marriage in dog years?
