HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A picnic marriage proposal on the Valley Isle had a special guest.

Akua, an 8-year-old poi dog, helped a California man pop the question to his girlfriend.

Henry enlisted Akua through the Maui Humane Society’s Beach Buddies program, which gives dogs a day on the beach.

He got the idea because his girlfriend, Chelsea, walks dogs for a living.

With Akua’s help, Chelsea said yes.

In return, he got a pup cup from Starbucks and a cheeseburger for his assistance.

Akua is currently staying with a temporary adoption family who could potentially adopt him.
