      So THAT's why!

      Woman breastfeeds puppy

      A New Zealand woman is breastfeeding her Staffordshire bull terrier puppy because she wants it to protect her baby daughter.

      Kura Tumanako, of Hastings, started breastfeeding the pup after her own baby stopped taking her milk, reports the New Zealand Herald.

      Her baby, Honey Pauline Philomina Flo, was born on August 29 and is now on bottled milk.

      "I wanted to raise the pup with my baby," Ms Tumanako said. "I wanted to bring it up with a baby. It will protect her as they grow up."

      "He drinks more than the baby. It doesn't hurt, but it's a little bit ticklish," she said.

      Ms Tumanako, who is pregnant again, said she did not care what people thought about her breastfeeding the pup.

      "It's my life, my responsibility. I make my own choices," she said. "I'm going to look after me, my baby and my puppy."

      Hastings veterinarian Sharon Marshall said it was uncommon, but not unheard of, for one species to provide milk to another.

      "It's not going to hurt the puppy," she said. "I would be more concerned for hygiene issues for any baby sharing the milk."

      Ms Tumanako,

      Explains some of it.

      Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to slide in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "Holy ****, what a ride!"

      come on, guys - do you really CARE?

      why do people have to get their panties in a bunch over what someone else does in the privacy of their own home.

      Obviously, if this story is all over the Net, she is not feeding her puppy in "just the privacy of her home"...

      come on, Yannis - chill out. Like what this woman does has any importance, at all, in the scheme of things.

      This story has every thing to do with it. The makers of nursing bras will now have to design into the new models, a place to hook the dogs leash. There are leash laws you know.

      Is this the "Off-Topic" Forum or have I started on the eggnog a little bit too early?
