On December 5, 2015 Velma, a four year old Great Dane from Alabama gave birth to a litter of puppies. Her owners Terri and Josh thought she was going to give birth to 10 puppies, but they were surprised when they learned that Velma was pregnant with a whopping 19 babies! The long and drawn out birthing process took around 19 hours in total and averaged around one puppy per hour.
