A DIVORCED woman has tied the knot again – this time ‘marrying’ her pet dog.

Amanda Rodgers decided to marry her dog Sheba in Split, Croatia, with the special service attended by 200 well-wishers.
She even got down on one leg for the proposal.
Amanda said: “Sheba had been in my life for years, making me laugh and comforting me when I was feeling low.
“I couldn’t think of anything more I’d need from a life partner.
“I got down on one knee and proposed.
“I could tell by her tail wagging that she said ‘yes’.”
She added: “I’d dreamed of a perfect wedding dress since I was small, I made it myself for the ceremony.
“The day was wonderful, more fun than the marriage.
“I gave her a kiss to seal the deal and then everyone threw confetti.
“It was a wonderful moment.”
She continued: “I know the wedding to Sheba wasn’t real in the legal sense.
“But it was a nice way to mark what Sheba means to me.
“Sheba’s never unkind to me and she’s always happy.”
Amanda, from Brixton, London, went on ITV’s This Morning to defend her rather bizarre actions, telling hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby they were “meant to be”.
She told the show: “She was two weeks old and she was new to the world – but I fell in love with her.
Amanda added: “I knew that we were meant to be.”
The hosts then asked her about the odd decision to actually marry her pet pooch.
Schofield said: “It’s a big step to go from caring for your dog to marrying it – why did you get there?”
“Yeah, I suppose you’re right… there are different kinds of love – my love for Sheba is very deep. We have a deep connection,” Amanda replied.
Amanda was then questioned about her love life.
As she starred into her adorable dog’s eyes, Amanda said: “Men don’t come anywhere near the bedroom unless she agrees… One time I made a man sleep in the dog bed for a whole week.”
