Rupert and his owner Katie

Rupert the ring bearer

"Emma and her girlfriend Lauren have been looking after my one year old Pomeranian, Rupert. Joining BorrowMyDoggy has been invaluable to me as Rupert gets separation anxiety and has to have company during the day. Every Tuesday morning I drop him with Emma and she takes him to her office, then I pick him up when I get home. When I had an operation earlier in the year and I was at home for a couple of months, Emma and Lauren visited and took him for walks on weekends. He adores them both (evident by the amount of face-licking that goes on when I hand him over). A couple of weeks ago, Emma and Lauren exchanged vows at a civil ceremony and asked me if Rupert could be the ring-bearer! I was so touched they wanted him to be part of their special day and it showed me just how much this little dog has snuggled his way into their hearts over the months, the way he does with everyone he meets. So Rupert duly donned his best bow tie, walked down the aisle with them, and gave the happy couple his fabulously fluffy blessing. They both said it made their day really special to have him there, plus of course the guests were charmed by him! Thanks to BorrowMyDoggy on behalf of myself, Emma and Lauren for giving us the chance to make all our lives happier via the magic that is Rupert!" - Rupert's owner, Katie
