It's not quite 101 dalmatians, but it's shockingly close. A Dalmatian named Milly gave birth to a litter of 16 puppies in the U.K. two weeks ago.
According to Channel 4 News, Milly's owners, the Elvins, were told to expect 4 puppies. Perhaps they meant 4 x 4. According to Rebecca Elvins, "The vet pulled out eight and then said, 'Oh, we're going to the other side now.'"
Milly herself was part of a litter of 16. According to the Daily Mail, the family plans to sell all of the pups to new homes, except for one puppy, named Maisie.
