A dog perfectly photobombed a Minnesota couple's engagement photos


A Twin Cities dog is now an Internet sensation after he photobombed his owners' engagement photos.

Megan Determan and Chris Kluthe wanted to include Louie, their 6-year-old dachshund, in their pictures. So the plan was to have the pooch playing in the foreground with the couple looking at him, Twin Cities-based DnK Photography wrote on its website.

But Louie – who loves to play in the leaves – "launched himself" in front of the camera, perfectly blocking Kluthe out of the picture, DnK Photography says.

And this wasn't the first time, DnK Photography notes, which has the couple suspecting a little bit of jealousy.

“I feel like Louie’s always just kinda like that. Anytime I go to touch Chris, he’s like, no, I want to be pet,” Determan told WCCO.

Typically, if someone's face is blocked in a photo DnK Photography wouldn't deliver it, but the "Louie picture" was a special case, Karin Berdal of DnK Photography told WCCO.

Since the photo was posted to Facebook, it's gotten a lot of attention across the globe, most recently being featured by the Daily Mail.
