You Have To See This Three-Legged Dog Who Was The Best Ring Bearer Ever

Piggy the three-legged pup is a therapy dog who normally helps teach kids and adults about humane treatment of animals, but for one couple's big day, he pulled out all the stops to strut down the aisle. See for yourself here!

As David Michel prepared to tie the knot to fiancee Jenny, he suddenly had the greatest idea ever.

Knowing his fiancee was an animal lover like himself, Michel wanted to have a very special dog be the ringbearer at their wedding. So he contacted his friend, Tod Emko, to see if he could borrow Piggy, a three-legged certified therapy dog that Emko rescued from the Dominican Republic in 2009 after a car accident left him dying on the beach. Piggy usually teaches humane education to children and adults in New York City, but Emko was more than happy to let Piggy have a little limelight on his friends' wedding day...

Little did David know, Jenny had the exact same idea.

The same day that David spoke to Emko about borrowing Piggy to have him be the ringbearer in his wedding ceremony to Jenny, Jenny came to Emko with the exact same idea. She, too, wanted it to be a surprise. Unfortunately, both of them were too giggly later that night after speaking to Emko on the same day to to keep the secret any longer and realized the amazing coincidence, true evidence that they had found their soulmates...

So, surprise or no surprise, Piggy proudly strode down the aisle to deliver their rings on the big day...

According to Emko, “Piggy took his job very seriously. Even though he usually stops for all admirers, he only gave respectful smiles and nods to everyone in the crowd who cooed and petted him as he passed by them, walking down the aisle.” When he got to the end, he laid down patiently on the grass by the couple, and Emko took the rings from a pouch on Piggy's vest. Then, the good dog stayed seated throughout the ceremony.

But after the ceremony, Piggy got to cut loose at the reception...

The pup finally got to say hello to all of his many fans at the reception, getting lots of pets and giving lots of handshakes, stealing almost all of the the attention from the bride and groom. “He went up to all his children and adult admirers alike who were waiting patiently to pet him,” Emko said. “And everyone melted when he’d give them eyes or paw. The wedding photographers agreed that every wedding needed an official dog.”
