Daily WOW: Bachelor party pet adoption

The Daily Catch - published on 10/28/16

When Mitchel Craddock left for his 5 day bachelor party he never imagined that he would come home with a new friend. He was with 5 of his friends getting ready for a week of four-wheeling when a dog they would name “Rosie” stole their hearts.

“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,” Craddock said. “We’d ride for 4-5 hours, or go into town, and every time we’d come back she would either be sitting on our doorstep or under one of our trucks,” Craddock told MLive. Eventually the men noticed that Annie was producing milk, Craddock said. They found her seven puppies in a den down the road from the cabin. The puppies appeared to be 5- to 6-weeks old and were very healthy, despite their mother’s malnourished look.

Each of the men took a pup for their own and we hope that there were many Game of Thrones references as they each picked their new best friend. Craddock even got his grandparents to take in Rosie and one of her pups!

Cheers to the Craddock wedding. May your new puppy always serve as an affectionate reminder of unconditional love as you start your new lives together.
