Bach­e­lor party pup­pies

Jamaica Gleaner - - FLAIR MAGAZINE - – AP

AGROUP of men from Michi­gan have re­turned from a bach­e­lor party in Ten­nessee with a stray dog and her lit­ter of pup­pies in tow.

Groom-to-be Mitchel Craddock and his friends were on a five-day trip at a cabin in the woods when a stray dog ap­proached their front door, MLive re­ported. The dog, they named Annie, wolfed down food and wa­ter the men gave her.

“We were cook­ing ba­con with the door open. The next thing you know, there’s this dog sit­ting right at the front door. She wouldn’t come in­side, but she sat right there,” said Craddock.

Even­tu­ally, the men no­ticed that Annie was pro­duc­ing milk, Craddock said. They found her seven pup­pies in a den down the road from the cabin.

The pup­pies ap­peared to be five to six weeks old and were very healthy, Craddock said.

“Once we got the pup­pies out of the hole, we knew we couldn’t just leave them, so we started fig­ur­ing out where they would go,” he said.

Craddock, who al­ready owned a cho­co­late Labrador retriever, said he didn’t in­tend to keep any of the pup­pies for his new house­hold. How­ever, his bride-to-be in­sisted they keep one.

Each of the men took one of the pup­pies, whom they named Brim­mie, Rosie, Daisy, Knox, Gun­ner, Bear, and Finn. Craddock’s grand­par­ents took the mother as well as a puppy.
