In fashion at the moment seems to be enlisting the help of members of the animal kingdom to do the dirty work.
While you have plenty of creatures to choose from, none give off the friendly, loving feel that a well trained dolphin does.

Luckily the magic moment was all filmed and has now been released for us all to watch and for men to take tips from.
His now-fiance, Kelly Reynolds, was so delighted with the surprise that she burst in to tears before accepting to proposal.
However, there is a problem, as Cobb revealed when speaking to the Tampa Bay Times.
"She said yes to the dolphin," Cobb said. "I never asked her yet."
