Sydney: Australian fast bowler Peter Siddle popped the question to his blonde sweetheart Anna Weatherlake on a weekend getaway two weeks ago with the help of his dog and the glamorous cricket couple is now engaged.

Siddle won the Sheffield Shield with county club Victoria and while he was on a weekend getaway on the Mornington Peninsula with his girlfriend of four years Weatherlake, he took the help of one of their four dogs to pop the question to her.

The couple kept the news hidden until after the cricket weddings of their good friends David Warner and Candice Falzon , held last weekend, and Clint McKay, who got married on Friday in Bali, News.com.au reported.

Siddle had the giant ring attached to the collar of one of their beloved dogs.

Weatherlake said that Siddle booked a weekend away in Rye for them with their four dogs as it was his last weekend in Melbourne before jetting off to the UK, adding that every night before bed they take the collars off their dogs, so she started taking Oscar’s off and there was a diamond ring hanging from the end of it, claiming that she couldn’t believe it.

Weatherlake admitted that she didn’t even realise, adding that she went to pass the collar to Siddle to put on the bedside table and he just stared at her and the collar and then she noticed it.

Siddle and Weatherlake, who have been together for almost four years, have no wedding plans yet, but might look at a local event in the 2017 summer, the report added.
