  • Tampa dog birth

The father of the puppies - a dog named Golden Nugget - was also present at the scene of the delivery.

While traveling through the concourse on the way to catch a flight to Philadelphia, a passenger's service dog unexpectedly went into labor.

This is not something you expect to see when going to the airport.

Boston quickly closed the gap in the second half and had an 11-point lead of their own within a minute of the fourth quarter. It was the most he has scored in an elimination game and only three points shy of his playoff career high of 49.


Due to the unexpected birth, the woman and her daughter missed their flight.

Tampa Fire and Rescue was called to the airport and helped deliver the puppies. She said they knew Eleanor Rigby was pregnant, but believed the excitement of being in the airport around so many new people may have triggered the early birth.

So far, Ellie has delivered five boys. Airlines don't generally allow pups to fly until they are 8 weeks old, so the family will have to find another way there - with 10 dogs instead of two.
