Eleanor Rigby, a golden retriever service dog, went into labour as she prepared to board a flight at Tampa International Airport on Friday local time. And the delivery ended with a big surprise. "Every time she's ready to deliver another one he starts jumping around", James told Tampa Bay Times.

And now, in addition to their human, both Ellie and Nugget have their own little canine family to take care of.

Ellie, who was pregnant with 8 puppies, gave birth one-by-one with the puppies' dad, Nugget, also Van Atter's dog, right by her side.
