|Guys at bachelor party in the remote Tennessee|
woods found abandoned puppies and the pups'
mother, so they adopted them on the spot.
But one such bachelor party ended up just that way.
A bunch of guys from Michigan were celebrating the upcoming nuptials of one of their buddies in a remote cabin in the Tennessee woods.
It would be a fun five days of four wheeling, carousing, boozing and a grand old time.
During the guys' stay, a skittish, obviously malnourished dog showed up at the cabin door. They fed the dog, who hung around, knowing there'd be more food.
But the guys got alarmed when they noticed the dog had recently given birth and kept going off into a certain place in the woods.
So they followed and found the dog's seven puppies in a den under some brush.
Mitchell Craddock, the groom to be, described the situation to Michigan Live:
"'We're guessing they were maybe aroud five or six weeks old,' Craddock said, and although their mother was very malnourished, the pups were robust. 'We were proud of her,' he said. 'She gave everything she had to those puppies.'"
Smart mom, too, having the nerve to ask for help from humans even though she'd obviously been mistreated by humans.
The guys naturally pulled the pups out and took care of them, too. The stash of money for beer for the guys immediately turned into a puppy food fund instead.
The bachelor party dudes got so attached to the pups that they knew they couldn't just leave them when their four days of fun in Tennessee was over. So they took the pups home.
Craddock adopted one of the puppies and four of his groomsmen adopted puppies as well. The other puppies and the mother were adopted by relatives of the groom and groomsmen, said the Huffington Post
All the dogs are doing well, and see each often because everybody who adopted the dogs lives fairly close to one another.
For the record, the puppies' names are now Brimmie, Rosie, Daisy, Knox, Gunner, Bear and Finn.
This turned out to be one of those bachelor parties where the strippers didn't strip, the booze didn't flow and nobody got arrested.
However, it was certainly one of the best bachelor parties ever. I know the dogs liked it a lot, too.
