Okay, so I heard of 101 Dalmations, but it was just a movie…an animated movie…lets get back to the real world.  I saw a video clip today about a Bulldog who had 21 puppies!.  That’s right TWENTY-ONE!  Unfortunately 4 passed away during birth, but that’s still 17 total puppies.  Take a look at the video (it’s from Fox News…fast forward to the last 25-30 seconds of the clip):

Bulldog Gives Birth To 21 Puppies

This clip got my imagination running with the “What if” scenarios.

  • What if I agreed to foster a pregnant mother dog for your local rescue group and she proceeded to give birth to 21 puppies.  Can you imagine how much poop there would be?  We fostered 7 German Shepherd puppies for 2 months and I felt like I was constantly picking up poop.
  • What if there was a guide dog puppy litter with 21 puppies.  Can you imagine?  Guide dog litters are assigned a letter.  For instance, Stetson was in the “S” litter and Derby was in the “D” litter.  You’d run out of names for your 21 puppies.  Perhaps they would just split the litter into two different letter groups.

I’m sure you can think of many other “What if” scenarios, but those two hit close to home for me.  I just thought I’d bring you a bit of the news today…I hope all those little bulldog puppies find good homes.
