SIOUX FALLS, SOUTH DAKOTA - Whoever says diamonds are a girl's best friend must not have a dog.

A touching interaction between a bride and her service dog is going viral.

Valerie and Andrew Parrot were married on Jan. 9 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The wedding was photographed by Maddie Peschong of Mad Photo and Design, and one special moment before the "I dos" has people talking.

In the photo, the bride is seen being comforted by her pink, tutu-wearing service dog, Bella. According to Mashable, Bella is alerting Valerie that her heart rate is elevated and is trying to distract her in order to calm her down. Bella is also responsible for helping Valerie deal with migraines and panic attacks.

Bella also held a special position at Valerie's wedding: She walked with the bride down the aisle.

Peschong posted the photos to her Facebook page with the caption, "One of the cutest little wedding guests there ever was!"

The interaction between Bella and the bride has racked up more than 1 million hits on Imgur.


Well! I wasn't expecting all of THIS today. Seriously, the craziest. Do you think Val (and Andrew and Bella!) needs a couple more previews since she is now internet famous? Yes? Okay I will oblige :)
