From the first day they met, Eko knew Emily was a keeper.

And the two have been inseparable since

Eko and I had countless exciting adventures, but I think he was most excited when he finally got to see Emily again.

One happy pup!

So this past weekend, with Eko as my witness, I did what I should have done a long time ago and asked Emily to marry me.  She said no… just kidding!

I’m thinking Emily might have been on the fence, but since Eko and I are a package deal she happily agreed.

Our intrepid friends braved the snow to help us celebrate

Eko acted as host and kept an eye on the fire

I’m one lucky dog

To top it all off, Eko has agreed to be our ring bearer.  I think he’s going to look great in a tux!

    Well, that’s odd…I left a post awhile ago and it’s not here. Anywho…CONGRATULATIONS! I just knew it was “THE” announcement from your title. As you say, trust the dog!

    BTW: Steffi was my first Valentine’s present after we were married. My husband said, “The gift of love that keeps on loving.” As so it has been for the past fourteen years.

    Again, Congratulations!

    How wonderful, you don’t know me but I have fallen in love with Eko and love your blog. My darling RR Hector died suddenly in 2010, I miss him everyday. Your beautiful dog Eko has so many of his endearing traits, that I just love being reminded of Hector through Eko. Thank you for sharing your lovely dog with the rest of us…P.S congratulations Emily looks to be very special as well.
