  • Yellow lab gives birth to eight puppies

- It's not exactly airmail, but a very special delivery just wrapped up at Tampa International Airport.

A golden retriever service dog about to board a domestic flight in the United States has instead given birth to a litter of puppies at the airport terminal in front of astonished fellow passengers.

'Eleanor Rigby, a golden retriever service dog, was about to board a plane to Philly when she went into labour at Gate 80'. 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.

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.

So far, Ellie has delivered five boys.
