It was love at first sight for a pair of guide dogs, and their owners soon followed suit. Claire Johnson, 50 and Mark Gaffey, 51, met two years ago in a guide dog training class in Stoke-on-Trent, England. Both adults are blind, and need their dogs, Venice and Rodd, to give them assistance. The pooches took to each other right away, and Claire describes them as the "class love story," going on to say, "Everyone used to joke about how Mark's dog Rodd and my dog Venice were meant to be together."

It was pure luck that Claire and Mark were put in the same class, but we'll bet they are incredibly thankful for that.

Mark said of the fortuitous class assignment, "We could have easily missed one another by a week because it was a residential course and we just happened to be put on the same one."

Once their dogs paired off, Mark and Claire soon became an item, as well. Mark stated of his bond with Claire, "There was a connection from the word go. We chatted about anything and everything."

Mark proposed on Valentine's Day of 2013, and the pair tied the knot on March 22. Much luck and love to the happy couple!
