The scene in question features the meeting of Roger and Anita, who are brought together -- literally -- by their dogs, Pongo and Perdita. As they get all tied up in the pups' leashes, the twosome take a tumble into a nearby pond -- and also fall madly in love.
Tony Collier and Corinne Jones, an Illinois couple who used to work together at Walt Disney World, decided to recreate Roger and Anita's meet cute to commemorate their engagement, paying close attention to every detail. Swapping in their own dogs for dalmatians, the twosome nail the costumes, facial expressions, and body language of the animated characters in a series of snaps that are almost too doggone adorable for words.
According to the couple, who initially posted the photos on Imgur, Jones's "favorite movie is 101 Dalmatians, and for our engagement photos she asked if we could recreate this one iconic scene (using our respective family dogs of course, Mookie & Izabelle)." Job well done, everyone.
Check out a few of our favorites below (taken by photographer Melissa Biggerstaff), and head over to Imgur to see the rest.
