After receiving a diagnosis of pulmonary fibrosis, Lilly Smartelli decided to tie the knot with her one true love: her faithful dog Bernie.

She joins Dave Hoekstra by phone to talk about her new book,“The $5 Dog Wedding”, and why she chose to wed her beloved pooch.

A portion of the proceeds from the book will go to Donate Life America, an organization seeking to increase the number of donated organs for those that need them.
