A woman from South London has married her dog in a bizarre ceremony in Croatia, following a failed marriage to a human man.
Amanda Rodgers married her dog Sheba in front of 200 people in March, and subsequently appeared on ITV’s “This Morning” to discuss the matter, the Daily Mirror reported.
Rodger’s, 47, explained: “‘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 was two weeks old and she was new to the world – but I fell in love with her,” Amanda said, when asked if they fell in love at first sight.
“I knew that we were meant to be.”The ceremony ended with a kiss between the pair. Rodgers said it was the perfect way to mark what Sheba means to her.
“There are different kinds of love — my love for Sheba is very deep. We have a deep connection.”
TV show host Phillip Schofield asked her: “It’s a big step to go from caring for your dog to marrying it – why did you get there?”
“Yeah, I suppose you’re right,” she replied. “There are different kinds of love – my love for Sheba is very deep. We have a deep connection.”
Schofield seemingly had to hold back his laughter to ask: “Do you think she knows?”
“Yes, and I am totally her b****,” Amanda replied sharply.
