It was an exciting day at Tampa's airport as a service dog went into labor.

The 2-year-old dog gave birth to seven male puppies and one female puppy, according to Tampa Fire Rescue.

Due to the unexpected birth, the woman and her daughter missed their flight.

This is not something you expect to see when going to the airport. "I saw little feet coming out", Van Atter said. "That's all", said Diane Van Atter, owner of Ellie the service dog.

SpaceX CEO, Elon Musk , previously mused about the plan at the International Astronautical Congress in Adelaide previous year . Another big stakeholder in the Boring project is Los Angeles's Metropolitan Transportation Agency.

Tampa Fire Rescue captured photos as paramedics and a member of the local police helped the two-year-old Labrador, whose full name is Eleanor Rigby, a reference to The Beatles song.

James was talking to the Tampa Bay Times by phone from the airport when people started cheering in the background. Then they'd go back to Bradenton where everyone would get some rest before figuring out how to drive to Philadelphia with a new litter.

Ellie, who was pregnant with 8 puppies, gave birth one-by-one with the puppies' dad, Nugget, also Van Atter's dog, right by her side.

No planes were delayed and all the puppies were successfully delivered.
