Yellow lab gives birth to eight puppies
Proud papa Nugget - also a service dog - was nearby.
It was an exciting day for a two-year-old yellow lab - and the entire Tampa Airport.
The 2-year-old golden retriever, Eleanor Rigby, owner Diane Van Atter, and the puppies' father, Golden Nugget, were waiting to board an afternoon flight home to Philadelphia when the dog went into labor.
The team documented the birth on Twitter, using the hashtag #AirportPuppies.
Due to the unexpected birth, the woman and her daughter missed their flight.
Fortunately, Tampa Fire & Rescue's Aircraft Rescue Firefighters paramedics were close by to help out with the canine delivery.
Van Atter said she has mobility and pain issues, Nipps said, and the dogs were service dogs, though Eleanor Rigby was still in training.
It was hard to control the father of the puppies during the delivery. The family, puppies and all, will be driving to Philadelphia instead, about 1,000 miles.
While traveling through the concourse on the way to catch a flight to Philadelphia, a passenger's service dog unexpectedly went into labor.
