Austin and I got our corgi, Goose, a few months before he proposed to me and we had recently gone together to purchase a dog tag with his and our information on it. When I came home from work one day I realized that his tag was on and didn’t think anything of it. Austin told me to check the tag and I grabbed it and pretended to read it, thinking to myself, “why does he want me to look at it?”
About 5 minutes later, as I was playing with Goose he jumped onto my chest and his dog tag was dangling in front of my face. I still didn’t read the tag until Austin encouraged me again to really read the tag. When I actually read it this time it didn’t read “Goose”, it read, “Kara, will you marry me?” I turned and saw Austin on one knee. How could I say no to a sweet dog, a Ritani ring, and an amazing man? We celebrated our one year anniversary on January 19th!
