Puppies, Puppies and more Puppies ....

I needed a 10 minute break. I saw this story and had to share:

Before Kyla gave birth, Stephanie Pino thought the Great Dane looked like a white cow with brindle spots.

Pino knew Kyla’s litter was going to be large, but she had no idea how large.

After about 20 grueling hours of labor, Kyla gave birth to 19 puppies on Sept. 11. Sixteen of the puppies survived and are happy, healthy five-week-old bundles of joy at 12 to 15 pounds apiece.

“They just kept coming and coming and coming, and we were like, ‘Oh my gosh,’ ” Pino said.

She had to deliver some of the puppies after the mama got too tired. Even the dogs’ veterinarian was shocked at the size of the litter, Pino said.

The head of the puppies’ daddy, Haze, is bigger than the entire body of one of his offspring. Haze weighs in at more than 200 pounds. When he stretches out, he’s roughly seven feet long. The Great Dane is one of the tallest dog breeds in the world.
