A dog has singlehandedly stolen his humans’ newlywed limelight with one perfectly photobombed wedding pic, and the internet has gone gaga over him.
Angie Blumberg and Jayce Conway had planned for their beloved 6-year-old labrador retriever, Boone, to be the best man in their wedding, which happened on July 28 in Big Sky, Montana, but they didn’t know he would take center stage and jettison them to viral status.
Conway jokingly told Today:
He’s a really well-trained dog. I planned for him to stand between me and my brother. Boone was technically the best man, but he couldn’t really give a speech so I thought I should give my brother a shot.
At first, Boone stuck with the plan. But when the bride began walking down the aisle, he broke rank and went to greet her. During the ceremony’s opening prayer, things got really interesting.
Conway told St. Louis TV station KSDK:
Boone got a little bored and decided to roll around in front of everyone.
The hilarious moment was captured by photographer Chris Davis, a friend of the couple. After the wedding, he posted the image online, where it quickly went viral, racking up 50,000 social media shares according to Today.

Of course the internet was over the moon for Boone:

Adorable. That’s the one they should use for their thank you cards.

It took a while for the couple to find out about the photo going viral since they were on their honeymoon in Zion National Park in Utah, where there is no cellphone service.
Conway told Today:
We didn’t really know it went viral until recently. Last thing we knew, our friend, the photographer, texted us the photo on the night of our wedding and we were just dying laughing.
Best thing I’ve seen…..maybe EVER!!
