Bachelor Party Turns Into Rescue Party When An Unexpected Visitor Shows Up
October 28, 2016
They were about to kick off a bachelor party in Tennessee, that’s when the group of eight men had an unexpected visitor at the door.
“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.” Mitchel Craddock said.
That’s when the night shifted from bachelor party to rescue mission. The group was immediately smitten with the friendly dog.
“She was such a sweet dog that once we gained her trust, she was happy to see us, wagging her tail — just a big sweetheart,” Craddock said.
Craddock also noticed the dog had pups but she was too sick to produce milk.
“After we gave her a bunch of food and water she started producing milk again. So we figured if she’s making milk, her pups can’t be that old.” Craddock said.
The group soon discovered the dog was watching over a specific place in the woods. It was there, in a giant hole, they found seven puppies.
“We set each pup individually down in front of her and she nuzzled their faces and she checked out the pups and to the person holding them, she gave the look of, ‘It’s OK, I trust you,'” Craddock said.
He continued, “Every single one had a big fat belly on them. The mom had given the pups literally everything she had.”
The groom and his groomsmen adopted all eight of the dogs, including the mother. Luckily, all of the homes of the men are within 5 miles so the family won’t be too far apart.
“We pooled a bunch of money to buy food and beer. After the third day, our beer fund turned into puppy food fund.”
The group is certainly happy with how things turned out. Of his wife’s reaction, Craddock noted, “I proposed to her with our chocolate lab and now it’s our joke that for any of our big life events, we’ll get a dog.”
