A woman couldn’t contain her tears when she looked down at the collar of a service dog she was collecting to discover a tag asking for her hand in marriage. As Lexi Ostolski, 23, read the words "Marry Me?" she saw her partner, Momo Esposito, 23, suddenly get down on one knee to present her with a ring. The moment caught a speechless Lexi completely by surprise, as tears filled her eyes and she tried to let out a "Yes" to Momo's request. The pair – who train sport K9s and service dogs – were at Timberland Farms Pumpkin Patch in Belleview, Florida, on October 23, to collect Lexi's service dog, Sterling, a German shorthair pointer. Momo has their own service dog, Beetlejuice, who is trained to assist with a seizure disorder, and Lexi suffers from PTSD and spinal trauma. After seeing how Beetlejuice helps Momo in day-to-day life, the couple decided to adopt Sterling, who will be trained as a medical response and mobility dog for Lexi. Knowing how special of a moment this would be for their partner, Momo order a customized dog tag for Sterling ahead of his collection. The couple have been together 10 years, Momo said, and their unique and meaningful proposal was captured on video and later shared on social media.
