Woman's Attempt To Get Dog To Pose With Engagement Ring Goes Wrong
A woman's attempt to show off her engagement ring by balancing it on her dog's nose went very badly wrong. You can see for yourself here:
In the clip, the woman can be seen balancing the shiny ring on the pooch while encouraging them to 'stay'. And initially they do, sitting obediently with the jewellery perched sweetly atop their nose.
But in a flash, the doggo has a change of heart, flipping their head back and chomping down hard on the ring. Unfortunately, the video comes to an abrupt stop there (which is pretty understandable), but you can just hear the crunch of canine teeth on the expensive ring, followed swiftly by a shocked gasp from the bride-to-be.
The footage of the the unfortunate but undeniably funny fail was shared on Reddit, where it has received more than 28,000 upvotes and a shedload of comments: 'that dog has expensive taste', 'that really was a diamond in the rruuuuuuuuffff', etc.
Presumably, such jokes aren't in poor taste, for while we may not know what happened next, you'd have to think the fiancée wouldn't feel too inclined to share the video on Reddit if the incident had destroyed her ring/dog's teeth.
Last year, a woman took to Reddit to vent about her engagement ring, which she thought was worth about as much as a dog's dinner.
Sharing a photo of the little rock on her finger, she said: "We been together for eight years and talking about getting married for almost three.
"This the ring he said he saved up to buy me.
"Am I being shady or materialistic if I tell this mf I don't want this little a** ring?"
The post kicked off quite the debate, so much so that they actually discussed it on Good Morning Britain.

On the one hand, or finger, some people thought that size does matter when it comes to something as special as an engagement ring.
One person tweeted: "Of course it does, who wants to wear a s*** ring for the rest of your life?"
Another wrote: "I wouldn't even try that on."
A third joked: "Is she certain it's a diamond? Looks more like a sugar granule."
But others reckoned proposals aren't about cash splashing.
One tweeted: "Only materialistic women will say yes! It shouldn't matter about the size or cost of a ring... surely all that should matter is LOVE."
Another said: "She needs to get her priorities straight. Be grateful he's wanting to commit to her rather than focusing on the size of the rock. I'd be happy with a £10 ring from Tesco. It's the meaning behind it. Shallow woman."
I suppose the key is determining whether the person you propose to is likely not to care, or likely to complain angrily about it on Reddit.
