You know what’s better than being at a bachelor party with a bunch of your boys? Being at a bachelor party with your boys and coming home with a brand new puppy. Especially one that you literally save from the harsh reality of nature.
Mitchel Craddock of Vicksburg, Michigan, took family and friends to the woods in Tennessee for his bachelor party. The first morning there, they noticed a dog outside the front 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,” he told ABC News.
Right off the bat you know this is an OG dog. Following the scent of bacon? That dog’s got its shit together. Craddock and his squad quickly became friends with the 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,” he said.
Craddock said he could tell the dog recently had puppies but also noticed that she was dehydrated and malnourished, meaning her milk for her babies had dried up.
“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,” he told ABC News.
Then Craddock noticed the dog was protecting a specific spot in the woods. When the boys went to investigate, they found a big hole with seven puppies inside of it.
“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.
All eight dogs, including the mom, were adopted by the groom and his groomsmen or their relatives. Just one big happy family of bros and dogs. Gotta love it.
