Birth is always a trying experience. For all animals.
But when Diva, a 3-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier mix got pregnant, her owners knew it would be a rough ride.
First, the father was 13 years old (that’s about 74 human years), so one wonders if that might have an impact.
Then when you consider the enormous size of this dog’s pregnant belly, you have to wonder…and worry.
Of course, Diva is a big dog, anyway, but she obviously didn’t have just one little pup in there.
So, when it finally came time to deliver her puppies, lying on towels in a corner, her owners waited with bated breath.
The first puppy came out and Diva licked it clean and introduced it to the world.
Then came the second puppy and as the mama dog was already looking weak, her owners helped her open the baby’s embryonic sac.
Diva tried to rest but nope, here comes a third!
After the third puppy arrived, the poor mother was simply too exhausted to help out much, so the owners fed the new baby with water from a medicine dropper.
They figured it was over. Three puppies seemed plenty.
But oh, were they ever wrong…because Diva wasn’t even CLOSE to being through!
By the time it was all over, the stunned owners didn’t merely have a mama dog and three new puppies.
No, they actually had 13 puppies!
If you can’t believe it, just watch the amazing video. The miracle of birth over and over and over again.
This is going to be one busy mama! 🙂
