Hero deaf pets! Hearing dog carries wedding rings for owner

Posted on August 14, 2012

A hearing dog went beyond the call of duty last weekend when, dressed in a waistcoat and satin tie, it carried its owner’s wedding rings to the altar.

The Norwich Evening News reported on the special role the canine played in the wedding of BSL tutor Simon Moore and  Communication Support worker Vicky Royall.

The paper quoted Mr Moore as saying: “I wanted Foggy here mainly because without him I wouldn’t have met Vicky,” said Mr Moore. “I gave him the most important job I could think of, apart from the best man. He probably didn’t have a clue what was going on, but he has done a fantastic job.

“Before I had Foggy, I would stay at home and lock myself in my room where I was happy. Thanks to Foggy, I got my independence, and it was because of him Vicky bumped into me.”
