102 Dalmation doggie becomes granny to record breaking 18 new puppies!January 8th, 2009 - 3:17 pm ICT by ANI
London, January 8 (ANI): A dalmatian managed to break a local record by delivering 18 puppies a little over a year after producing a cluster of 16.
Owners Adam and Nicola Morley and their 17-year-old son, Michael, have been on their feet 24X7 to help nurse the exhausted three-year-old mother, Button, feed and tend the puppies.
Button is the daughter of a dog in the Disney film 102 Dalmatians, reports TimesOnline.
The massive bunch was said to be the biggest to be delivered at Chine House Veterinary Hospital in Sileby, Leicestershire, on December 23.
Con Hassett, the vet carried out the delivery by Caesarean section, said: I delivered all 18 puppies in about 9 to 12 minutes.
The surgery itself is reasonably straightforward, but its the aftercare thats harder. We had to have five or six nurses there to revive and tend to the puppies.
Nicola added: It was a big shock. They are all doing well but were only going to keep one. (ANI)
