Read this story:
Jessie, the Rottweiler belonging to Eleanor Usher, was pregnant, and they were instructed to expect between six and eight puppies. But Mother Nature had other plans, and everyone was in for a surprise at the time of birth.
Jessie gave birth three days prior to her due date. In the middle of the night, the puppies continued to arrive! The grand total? In the end, there were fifteen puppies. Although not a record, this is the second largest litter ever in the United Kingdom (the largest was 18!).
After seven hours of labor and what appeared to be an interminable amount of puppies, the family was astonished but ecstatic. And Jessie is the best mother ever! She has been able to feed them all on her own and give each puppy the care it need.
