A Christiansburg golden retriever is glowing after recently giving birth to a large litter.
Daisy had fourteen puppies in all last week.
Sadly, one of them did not make it, but the remaining 13 are healthy.
A local vet says the average litter for a golden retriever is about six to twelve puppies.
Owner Carl Pauli was not surprised, because of the size of her first litter two years ago.
“It's a very large litter, it's her 2nd litter, but her first litter was 12, and we thought that was unusually large. When she had 14, we couldn't believe it,” said Pauli.
Pauli says they plan to sell the pups in about six to eight weeks.
