  • A service dog named Ellie which is short for Eleanor Rigby went into labor and delivered eight puppies in the middle of a terminal at Tampa International Airport on Friday

- It's not exactly airmail, but a very special delivery just wrapped up at Tampa International Airport.

Dressed in denim capri trousers and a Hawaiian-print shirt, the owner snuggled right up to Ellie to comfort her through the process.

Mother Nature's timing can be a bit unpredictable. "That's all", said Diane Van Atter, owner of Ellie the service dog.

Both Eleanor Rigby and Golden Nugget are service dogs to Van Atter, who suffers from mobility and pain issues, an airport spokeswoman told the publication.
