We admire parents like Jennifer Garner and Angelina Jolie who put their families before their careers.

But if we had to make a nomination for mom of the year, it would have to go to this dog.

Quassia vom Wandsbarg the Irish setter gave birth to 17 puppies earlier this month in Lutzhorn, Germany; of the 17 newborns, 15 survived. It was the 4-year-old dog's very first litter, too.

If she looks a little tired, you know why. But just wait until they get a little older – that's a whole lot of soccer practices and dance lessons and PTA meetings, are we right?
