The clip, called “the most Aussie proposal ever” shows John McCormack, 33, telling his black Labrador retriever, who has a pink box tied to its collar,”Okay Spud, it’s your time to shine – whatever you do, don’t eat the box.”

He gets his Scottish girlfriend Sarah Leighton, 25, to call Spud upstairs, where she finds the ring inside the box…

“So what do ya reckon? Do ya wanna get married?” the romantic old so-and-so asks.
