These 13 puppies are mine – honestly! White Labrador makes great litter … and everyone has a black coat
- Three year old Lucy gave birth to her first four pups in 20 minutes
- Lucy missed the English record for a Labrador litter of 14 puppies
- Owner Catherine Smith paired her with her friend's eight-year-old black lab, Bastion
They say 13 is unhappy – but not for Lucy the Labrador.
The gold-coated pet gave birth to a dozen baker puppies – and each one is black.
37 year old owner Catherine Smith was amazed to see the pups keep coming back after three year old Lucy went into labor and just missed the English record for a 14-headed Labrador litter.

Lucy, the gold-plated Labrador, had her first four pups in just 20 minutes, then they just kept popping up
"She had the first four in just 20 minutes, then they just kept popping up," she said.
“This is the first time we've bred a dog and thought she might have five or six. It started at 11.50 a.m. and by 4.30 p.m. it was all over.
"I think she was wondering where they'd all come from!"

Mrs. Smith thought Lucy might only have five or six puppies, but by the end of the day she got 13 pounds of dog food a week
Mrs. Smith paired Lucy with her friend's eight-year-old black lab, Bastion.
"We are now getting 15 kg of dog food a week," said Ms. Smith, a part-time waitress from Taunton, Somerset.
The eight dogs and five bitches were sold within three weeks.
