Watch: This Irish guy's adorable proposal to his dog-lover girlfriend will make your day

Groom-to-be pops the question with the help of some canine friends

There's nothing like a cute proposal story to make us all say 'aww', but it's in video form and involves someone popping the question with the help of his canine friends well that's just our Sunday evening made.

A year and a half ago, Thalita, who is originally from Brazil, met Karl at a bar in Dublin City Centre and they immediately hit it off. It wasn’t long before Karl knew that Thalita was the one he’d like to spend the rest of his life with and so he decided to propose.

Karl wanted to do something unique and dog themed for Thalita as she is such a huge dog lover so he contacted Dogs Trust and asked for their help. After hearing how much Thalita misses her family’s rescue dog ‘Chocolate’ back in Brazil and how she 'Skypes’ him all the time, they just couldn’t say no!


Karl told Thalita that he had a surprise planned and brought her to Dogs Trust where he revealed he had organised a tour of the Rehoming Centre as her big surprise – what Thalita didn’t know is that Karl had an even bigger surprise planned!

Following a special tour of the centre, the couple were taken into the centre’s training barn for Thalita to meet some puppies. Unbeknownst to Thalita, Karl had delivered a ‘Will You Marry Me’ poster a few days earlier and this was pinned to the back of a table which was swung around as Karl got down on one knee and asked Thalita to marry him.

And of course Thalita said yes.

All together now! Aww...
