How Many Spots Do 18 Dalmatian Puppies Have?  A Lot.

A Dalmatian named Button from Melton Mowbray, England gave birth to a whopping 18 puppies this week! That's not counting the 15 puppies that she had over a year ago...that's 33 pups altogether! The BBC reports that Button's owners Adam and Nicola Morley are hand-feeding the pups because momma can't keep up with them all. "We all take it in turns to feed them - my stint is usually 3am," Adam Morley said. The family plans to keep one puppy and will probably call it Rudolph, the reports says. Turns out this litter of puppies has celebrity roots: Button is the daughter of a dog named Dipstick who was in the 2000 movie 102 Dalmatians.
