Most people expect a ring, flowers and maybe even music at their dream proposal, but one man surprised his girlfriend with all that and something a bit furrier: 16 dogs.
After more than four years of dating, Laura Stampler thought boyfriend Maurice Goldstein could propose at any point over the past six months, she told CBS News.
But, she was still completely taken by surprise when he popped the question while they were home in the Los Angeles area over Thanksgiving. They now live in New York City.
Goldstein asked Stampler to go for a hike at Runyon Canyon, a park in Los Angeles, before getting drinks with friends one night.
About 15 minutes into their hike, Stampler, a writer, said she noticed something a little peculiar on the trail.
“I saw the rose petals and I see a group of figures and it’s just like, all of a sudden … you know,” recounted Stampler. “And I just started hyperventilating and crying.”
With rose petals beneath their feet and an a capella group singing Motown hits and Disney classics, Goldstein got down on one knee and proposed.
She said yes. But, the classic romantic moves weren’t all he had in store.
