After just three months of dating, Tasha Sween and Sanders Marvin went their separate ways but remained friendly. Tasha eventually adopted a puppy born to Sanders's dogs, weimaraners named Joyce and Jup. And it was that puppy, Sabu, who would bring them back together: Three years later, when Tasha was desperately looking for a pet-sitter, Sanders volunteered his services. "I took him out to dinner to thank him," Tasha recalls. "We had a great time. After that we started dating again, and a year later, we were both ready for marriage." On December 22, 2000, he proposed.
