Service Dog Gives Birth to 8 Puppies at Tampa International Airport
One lucky airline passenger ended up with eight additional carry-ons at the Tampa International Airport last week. Diane Van Atter got the surprise of a lifetime when her service dog, Eleanor "Ellie" Rigby, suddenly went into labor while they were waiting to board a Philadelphia-bound flight on Friday. Travelers and employees looked on as the two-year-old yellow lab delivered eight healthy puppies inside the airport's main terminal. Her owners reportedly knew Ellie was pregnant, but did not know how close she was to delivery.
