Airport puppies

Yellow lab gives birth to eight puppies

Friday was an exciting day for travelers at Tampa International Airport who got to witness a dog give birth to puppies.

Luckily the father, Nugget, was there for the commotion, too.

Initially, seven puppies (all boys!) were born but Tampa Fire Rescue's medical team - admirably stepping up as impromptu veterinarians - had to help Ellie deliver an eighth.

And yes, the two women have since missed their flight to Philly.

"I've never seen anything like this in an airport, or otherwise", she said.

An airport spokesperson told Fox 35 that a woman and her daughter were flying from Tampa to Philadelphia.

James added that they planned to go back to their home in Bradenton, Florida, with the dogs and the puppies and calm their nerves before deciding on a plan to drive to Philadelphia with the puppies. They were aware that Ellie was pregnant, but didn't realize how far along she was.
