Louise Clement, a resident of Preston, stated that throughout the 14-hour labor that took place last year, three-year-old Nellie’s puppies “just kept on coming.” Nellie’s first birth consisted of 10 males and 8 females, which is double the size of the typical first-time mother’s litter. As a result, Nellie’s mother, Louise, expressed that she was “very pleased” with her.
“She had a fantastic natural labor, but the babies just kept on coming,” the 46-year-old added. “When I saw her after number 15, it appeared as though she had laid down to go to sleep, so I assumed that she had finished. However, after that, there was another one, followed by two more after that. “Nellie is shaping out to be a wonderful mother. She has done an outstanding job, and I couldn’t be more grateful to her.”
Louise has been raising dalmatians for the past 30 years, and she already has 27 dogs racing around her property. As the movie 101 Dalmatians showed us, having a load of dogs rushing around can be pretty hectic. Louise had to say, “Fortunately, we have a lot of outside area, and there are lots of things for the dogs to play with.”
They have their very own Wendy House, complete with swings and slides, which the puppies adore playing on. Some of them sleep in the dining room, some in the kitchen, while others in the utility room, as well as the living room. A couple will occasionally come in and sleep with me.
She went on to say that she would only be keeping one of the puppies for herself, and that the others will be adopted by new families. Nellie undoubtedly did a fantastic job, but there was a record-breaking dalmatian litter born in Australia the previous year that she fell one puppy short of.
