"...notice the ring on her collar."
"Obviously my buddy was with her while I was going to get the girlfriend. She thought that the surprise was we were going on a walk."
"She froze when she saw the puppy. 'Oh my god, you got me a puppy?'
"She thought the surprise was over."
"This is when she notices my best friend off to the side with his camera, about the same time I told her to look at the collar."
"Had a little trouble getting the ring off."
"So I asked..."
"..and she said yes!"
"My gorgeous fiance!"
"First Family Portrait."
"The ring...& Ava May!"
