Yellow lab gives birth to eight puppies

The puppies were delivered with assistance from Tampa Fire Rescue paramedics stationed at the airport, as well as a nurse who had to leave halfway though the delivery to catch her own flight.

The dog and her owner were on the way to Philadelphia, but the puppies had other ideas.

Down on the ground right next to seating at one of the gates, the miracle of life unfolded before everyone's eyes. "Especially in an airport", said Kelly Bonnazio, witness to the delivery. The women said that they knew "Ellie" the yellow Lab was pregnant, but they were not aware of how close she apparently was to giving birth.

The new mom, owner Diane Van Atter and the puppies' father, Golden Nugget, were waiting for a flight home Friday when the puppies started arriving one by one. As Ellie went into labor, Nugget, the father of her babies, watched calmly. "Paramedics Larry Glanton and Lt Natalie Brown teamed up to deliver the eight puppies".

Ellie is short for the service dog's full name, which is Eleanor Rigby.
