She may have found her happily ever after with J.P. Rosenbaum, but The Bachelorette Ashley Hebert definitely had a connection with her other suitor, Ben Flajnik – a canine connection!
During Flajnik’s first meeting with Hebert’s family in Fiji, the pair, who are both dog owners, goofily displayed their best doggie voices for the group – hers, a high-pitched coo, and his, a terrifying rasp.
“There’s a lot of embarrassing moments [between us], a lot of dog-voice talk,” Flajnik, who has a Jack Russell terrier named Scotch, explained to the group.
“His is better than mine,” Hebert said, laughing.
Dog voices aside, Hebert ultimately chose 34-year-old construction manager Rosenbaum, but she still pines for her teacup Yorkie Boo, who she left behind at home in Madawaska, Maine.
In March, she told PEOPLE that the dog was, “the love of my life – right now.” Let’s hope Boo and her new fiancé hit it off!
