Maybe you should try using your dog in your dating life.
Richard Craggs signed up for Match.com and had very little success, so as a joke he switched his profile picture for that of his beloved pooch, George, a black labrador retriever. Kate Beddow happened upon his photo and was immediately drawn to George the dog, having always loved dogs and also thinking that the man who put up the photo must have some sense of humor. She wanted to get to know him more.
Katie admits that the sight of George immediately drew her to Richard’s profile:
“I always wanted a dog, so when I spotted George online it made me laugh and think ‘Aww how cute!’ I had only been on the site for a few weeks when I spotted the bizarre profile picture of George. When I clicked on it and read Richard’s profile the idea he had used George’s picture really tickled me so I contacted him through the site. I messaged him saying ‘Does your dog know you are looking for love?!”
It’s been five years since that the couple met online. Today they are married, and George was the ringbearer at their wedding. They now are the parents of a baby daughter, Bethany, and George has had an addition of his own, “Now we have beautiful Bethany, and George has his own daughter, a two year-old black Labrador called Ebony.”
