Call it 19 Pups and Counting.
WHTM-TV reports York County, Pennsylvania, residents Brandon and Aimie Terry's Great Dane recently gave birth to 19 puppies.
Great Danes normally have seven to 10 puppies in a litter, but Brandon Terry says an X-ray of Snowy found at least 15 "little spines" during a visit to the veterinarian's office before she gave birth.

Sure, anyone can do a halfway decent impression of Matthew McConaughey if they just know those three magic words: "Alright, alright, alright." But not every human impersonator can nail McConaughey's signature cadence as well as Einstein the parrot does.

681 is a very lucky number.
A week-old otter pup, dubbed 681, was found abandoned at night on a California beach and taken by experts to the Monterey Bay Aquarium where they determined she needed some critical care, according to the Washington Post.
It took four weeks for staff there to fatten up the 2-lb. pup, who has since been transferred to the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago for an otter boot camp of sorts, because most otters don't separate from their mothers until about 8 months old.
The Post reports that instead of joining the other young otters there, pup 681, who is now a healthy 6 lbs., will stay behind the scenes and learn the ins and outs of otter life, including grooming, swimming and feeding on her own (shrimp and clams anyone?).

The anaconda that supposedly gobbled up a man for a Discovery Channel special wasn't harmed, but that didn't stop the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) from weighing in on the network's latest ratings ploy.
A network source assures PEOPLE that the massive snake in Eaten Alive, a special airing Dec. 7 featuring naturalist Paul Rosolie, survived the filming. (Rosolie did, too, in case you were wondering.) But PETA still has major concerns, which is why it urged the network to drop the special.
