A husband and wife lost the chance to enjoy their $7,000 honeymoon in Bali after they were turned away by government officials due to the groom's passport being damaged by the couple's dog.
According to The Mirror, Daniel and Tia Farthing said the passport was chewed on by their dog Milo several years ago, but it wasn't a problem until they flew from the United Kingdom to Bali on October 16.
While U.K. Border Force agents said the damaged passport wouldn't be an issue during their vacation to Indonesia, officials there disagreed. Bali security personnel informed Farthing and his wife they would have to take the next flight out of the country.
Unfortunately, the next flight out of Bali included a stopover in Singapore, where Farthing was detained for seven hours. The couple did eventually make it back to London's Heathrow Airport, where an employee remarked about how the damage to the passport was not a big deal.
Farthing's sister-in-law started a GoFundMe campaign to assist the couple after losing all of their honeymoon investments and having to pay their way back to England. As for Milo, he is currently working on reconciliation with his owners.
"He knows he's done wrong because he's been constantly coming to us for cuddles," Farthing's wife said.
