After some fellas plan a bachelor party in the Tennessee woods, they make a shocking discovery.
Mitchel Craddock had found the love of his life. He had planed the perfect proposal and the ideal wedding. Finally, the groom had reached the most exciting event of any soon to be married man: the bachelor party.
The groom and a few of his buddies drove up to the Tennessee mountains to enjoy some time at a cabin in the woods. Even though it was labeled a ‘guys only’ event, one lady managed to crash the party.
After a booze filled night, the crew awoke to refuel with a hearty breakfast. When a few friends began to cook a skillet full of bacon, they noticed a four legged friend standing right outside the front door. The female dog was keenly watching their every move.
“We were cooking bacon…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,” Mitchel stated.
The men decided to befriend the pup and named her Annie. They figured she was a stray based on her extremely malnourished frame.
Upon closer examination, it was clear Annie had recently given birth. Sadly, because of her lack of food, she wasn’t producing any milk. After being fed some food and water, Annie was good to go. They crew guessed her babies couldn’t have been too old if they were still nursing. The hunt for the pups began.
After following Annie outside, the guys noticed she became extremely territorial over one particular grassy area. Jackpot. Hidden in a hole in the ground were seven pups nuzzled together.
Eventually, each one carefully made its way from the hole. Mama Annie stood a close watch. After some observation, she began to trust the men with her babies. Knox, Bear, Daisy, Gunner, Brimmy, Finn, and Rose were found to be in tiptop shape.
“The mom had given the pups literally everything she had,” Mitchel said
Almost immediately it was decided the party themed weekend was changing gears to center around Annie. The groom and his groomsmen gladly pooled their money to provide supplies and food for the new family.
When it came time to leave, Mitchel couldn’t abandon the mom and her babies. What was his solution to the problem? The soon to be married man decided to adopt all eight dogs.
What once started as a wild party weekend in the woods ended as a heartwarming adoption story. The wedding went off without a hitch and Mitchel still lives within a five mile radius of all the pups.
