It was summertime when Mark felt that it was the right time to propose to her girlfriend, Ashley. Their dog, Ghost, knows that he would also like to take his part in this event.
They drove over to a lake in Geneva, Wisconsin, and there they can walk along the beach. This is the place where Mark thought he would propose. For this event, he had given Ghost a very special task to accomplish.
Mark had also asked for help from his sister and Ashley’s sister to prepare everything. He also invited people composed of their family, friends, and even their grandpa, who is now 96-year-old was there.
Everyone was staying up the walkway so Ashley wouldn’t see them. They were hidden by Mark so that it wouldn’t spoil the surprise.
The plan was they would go to a particular spot. Once there, Mark would whistle out to call their dog. Ghost would then come running towards them wearing a “will you marry me” sign around his neck.
The plan was in action, and the couple got their spot. Mark whistled, and out came Ghost, who got distracted with the sight of seagulls that were flying around.
Mark held Ashley’s hand and knelt down on his knees. Ghost was, well, still jumping up to try and catch the seagulls.
As Mark proposed, Ghost was all to busy in his attempt at catching one of the seagulls. Things didn’t go the way it was planned out, but it was all too funny.
The entire thing was being photographed. According to Mark, this was a snapshot of how their everyday life is – a bit chaotic and full of love.
A few months later, Mark and Ashley are now planning their wedding. They still plan on giving Ghost a task.
They knew it would be chaotic again with Ghost, but they also knew it would make things more special.
