This Veteran Made His Service Dog The Best Man At His Wedding! This Will Definitely Warm Your Heart!!Ashley Maisano
Gabe the service dog has stood by his ownerâ€™s side through thick and thin, so it doesnâ€™t come as a surprise that heâ€™d stand by his side for his wedding too!
This adorable Golden Retriever had the honor of being the best man at U.S. Army veteran Justin Landsfordâ€™s wedding. But after learning their story, youâ€™ll realize that itâ€™s also an honor for Landsford to have Gabe be his best man!
Landsford and Gabe first met after Landsfordâ€™s leg had to be amputated after being struck by an IED while stationed in Afghanistan in 2012. The Warrior Canine Connection paired the two together, so that Landsford could get the help, love and company he desperately needed to get through these arduous times. They became the best of friends from there on out.
â€śGabe goes everywhere with Justin,â€ť Carol, his wife, told The Dodo. â€śThey are pretty much joined at the hip.â€ť
But of course Carol found friendship in Gabe as well. Gabe has made every day easier for the couple, and helps in so many ways.
â€śIf Justin drops something, heâ€™s right there to pick it up for him,â€ť Carol said. â€śIf Justin ever falls, heâ€™s always right there to help him back up.â€ť
They said it was a â€śno-brainerâ€ť to have Gabe be the best man at their wedding.
And a great best man he was! You can see the happiness on Gabeâ€™s face as he got to be a special part of his humanâ€™s wedding.
â€śYou can see the dog is such a huge part of their lives,â€ť wedding photographer Brad Hall told The Dodo. â€śHe was with them as they walked down the aisle, wearing formal army attire and even a little bow tie. You canâ€™t help but love that dog.â€ť
Iâ€™m so happy that these two best friends got to share yet another special moment with each other!
