This amazing story will restore your faith in true love


Claire Johnson and Mark Gaffney are both blind and first met in March 2012 at a two-week guide dog training course.

The nicest part of this story is what brought them together. Their guide dogs, Rodd and Venice, formed a strong bond and would constantly want to be together.

As Claire says about the two dogs: “Our dogs were the class love story. Everyone used to joke about how Mark’s dog, Rodd, and my dog, Venice, were meant to be together.”

Recognising this, the couple then started to meet up to walk the two love-bird dogs and found that they themselves also fell in love.

Mark says: “much like our two guide dogs, we really are best friends and soul mates”.

The two got married last Saturday in England and their trusted companions were by their sides.
