Bachelor parties are usually associated with wild nights with friends. But that is not always the case. A getaway with his best buds took a different turn for this groom when his group came across a stray mama dog outside their cabin one day.
Mitchel Caddock from Vicksburg, Michigan was hanging out with some of his friends and family in a cabin before his wedding. They saw the dog when they were cooking bacon for breakfast one morning.
“We were cooking bacon with the door open. The next thing you know, there’s this dog sitting right at the front door. She wouldn’t come inside, but she sat right there,” he told ABC News.
She was guarded, so she took some time to trust the eight men, but she quickly warmed up to their group.
“She was such a sweet dog that once we gained her trust, she was happy to see us, wagging her tail — just a big sweetheart,” says Caddock.
Caddock assumed that she must have just had pups because he noticed her producing milk after being fed.
Since they were concerned about the state of the puppies, the men followed the mama dog. That’s when they found seven little puppies in the forest.
The dogs were dirty and had flea all over, but they were healthy and plump.
“Every single one had a big fat belly on them. The mom had given the pups literally everything she had.”
The groom and his friends decided to adopt one dog each after they were rescued.
Since all of them live within a five mile radius of one other, the family of dogs will get to see each other regularly.
They might have had a different bachelor party than they were expecting, but they say they are overjoyed about the memories they were able make. “We pooled a bunch of money to buy food and beer. After the third day, our beer fund turned into puppy food fund,” says Caddock.
