This charming senior dog takes the role of best man at his parents’ wedding very seriously and turns heads.
When Sophia Coleman met her current husband, Josh, her adorable older dog Rocky was the first thing she saw. She immediately fell in love with the furry little one her mate had rescued and, of course, over time, she also fell in love with Josh. Rocky has been around their entire relationship, so when the couple was about to get married, they knew they wanted him to be an important part of their marriage.
The couple decided their dog would have two titles at the ceremony, it would be ‘Best Man’ and ‘Ring Bearer’. So they got everything ready and bought him a little suit for the ceremony, and he looked absolutely perfect.
Sophia told The Dodo:
We had ups and downs in our relationship, and Rocky was always there to remind us what true love is, so there was no doubt that he had to be a part of the marriage.

The idea was for Rocky to walk down the center aisle as a ring bearer in front of all the guests, which the couple didn’t think would be a problem. Although Rocky can be a little grumpy at times, this guy loves people. And of course, when the wedding day finally arrived, Rocky took his assignments seriously; at least most of the time.
He’s a pretty brave guy despite being 13 years old.
It took a lot of persuasion and gifts to get her to walk down the aisle in front of 80 people. He did very well in rehearsal when no guests were present, but during the ceremony itself, he got a little distracted by the guests! I think he expected everyone to give him treats.
As soon as Rocky arrived at the altar, he stood next to his parents during the ceremony. While everyone was happy to see the couple get married, they were perhaps even more thrilled to see Rocky by their side keeping their cool.
Everyone loved seeing him in his cute suit. As I walked down the hall, there were lots of happy laughs. He was truly the star of the show!
Once the ceremony was over, so were Rocky’s responsibilities and his parents took him to the bridal suite to give the older dog a rest. Rocky wasn’t too fond of this idea and found a way to make his return to the front desk.
He was still in the same building as the reception, but we thought it was better for him to rest, and besides, we didn’t want anyone to bump into him. At one point, he burst in through the back door and escaped when someone opened the honeymoon suite, immediately he found me and my husband, he wanted to be by our side all night!
Rocky performed his duties within the marriage as he wished, and his parents wouldn’t have wished otherwise, they love their spoiled little one with all their might.
