A piece of good news from Brisbane Australia. Despite the local flooding a black Labrador gave birth to a litter of eight healthy guide dog puppies after having been earlier evacuated from the breeding and training centre.
The expectant mum-to-be spent the first stage of labour in a hotel room being watched by a Guide Dogs Queensland specialist breeding team but was later rushed to Queensland veterinary specialists for an emergency caesarean section during which eight healthy pups were delivered.
The mum and pups are doing well back at the breeding centre and hopefully the five boys and three girls will grow up to be wonderful guide dogs.
