Service Dog Gives Birth To 8 Puppies At Tampa Airport

The litter that couldn't wait changed one woman's travel plans.

Eleanor Rigby, a 2-year-old English cream golden retriever and service dog, was waiting at a gate at Tampa International Airport on Friday to fly to Philadelphia with her owner, Diane Vanatter. But eight others were not willing to wait even one more minute – namely the puppies who were born on the spot, as Tampa’s Fox 13 reported.

Watch the video above to see the adorable “new arrivals.”

CORRECTION: A previous version of this story misstated the dog breed as a Labrador retriever.
