Miley began her labor at 7:00 a.m. and didn’t finish until 8:30 p.m. On average, though, she was popping out a puppy every hour. And, in the end, it was discovered that the new mom had produced a whopping litter of 18. A surprised and delighted Langton-Bunker would later say, “We got to 16 and thought she was done. After 13 and a half hours of labor, it was quite amazing – she popped out another two.”
The enormous number of spotty puppies has not only smashed the Australian record, but it has also equaled the world record for the number of Dalmatian pups born in one litter. Not only that, but Miley and Astro have additionally outdone the stars of Disney’s 101 Dalmatians. In the 1961 animated classic, Pongo and Perdita only parented 15 babies – the rest are adopted.
