Man's Best Friend Helps Propose

This dog proves dogs are not only a man's best friend, but also a man's best wingman.

John McCormack's 15-month-old black lab, Spud, had his owner's back when McCormack decided to pop the question to girlfriend, Sarah Leighton.

"OK, Spud. It's your time to shine," McCormack told Spud, who had the ring tied around his neck in the video. "Whatever you do, don't eat the box."

McCormack then sneakily asked Leighton to call Spud into the living room, where she was resting with an injured foot.

As the dog runs into the room, Leighton immediately notices the present around his neck and asks, "Oh what's that? What have you got?"

Distracted Girlfriend Fails to Notice Marriage Proposal

She unwraps the little box to unveil a diamond engagement ring, which leaves her speechless.

"What do you reckon?," McCormack asks Leighton, laughing as his surprise went according to plan. "Want to get married?"

Leighton musters out a 'Yes' through her tears of joy.

"Put it on my ring like a proper person, on my finger," she says.

The happy couple, whose proposal has gone viral with nearly 1 million YouTube views, are planning their wedding and Spud is a shoe-in for ring bearer.
