A former model in the United Kingdom married her pet golden retriever on live TV, claiming she had “given up” on finding the perfect man for herself after being “unlucky in love.”
49-year-old Elizabeth Hoad and her dog Logan appeared on This Morning for their “marriage” which was officiated by the morning talk show’s host Alison Hammond, according to a New York Post report.
British broadcasters Ruth and Eamonn Holmes were also present at the ceremony while past “Love Island” UK winner Kem Cetinay donned the hat of “best man.”
“All that I have in my doggy treat cupboard I promise to give to you,” the former ’80s swimsuit model said on the show.
After Hoad said, “I do,” Hammond waited briefly for Logan’s response before taking his silence for a “yes.”
“He doesn’t seem too excited!” the host joked.
Hoad, who hails from Berkshire, has claimed to have been in over 200 relationships including with the likes of golfer Seve Ballesteros and Formula One driver James Hunt.
“I’ve had 220 dates in eight years from six dating sites and it’s generally been a disaster. I thought it would be a good idea to ‘marry’ Logan instead,” she told The Sun recently.
Hoad had rescued Logan just a year ago after four “traumatic years of being locked up and beaten in a utility cupboard.”
“He’s saved me and I’ve saved him. I was a broken woman when my last dog died,” she was quoted as saying.

Several netizens, however, weren’t impressed with the unusual marriage.
I honestly don’t find the woman marrying her dog on public television one bit funny, it’s actually sad and the fact that it’s broadcast live makes it 10x worse #thismorning— (@_edel_x) July 30, 2019
Either that was a terrible joke, like genuinely one of the worst attempts at humour I've ever seen...Or, @thismorning are exploiting mental health issues, from a show that has done so much to promote & help the cause.Not to mention making a mockery of marriage.#thismorning— Damian Morgan (@DamianMorgan) July 30, 2019
2019 is weirder than 2018 and I didn't think that was possible— Rachel Hawkins (@ourrachblogs) July 30, 2019
