(FOX NEWS) -- A service dog unexpectedly went into labor shortly before she and her two owners were slated to board a flight at the Tampa International on Friday.

The 2-year-old yellow lab, Eleanor “Elle” Rigby, (named after The Beatles song of the same name), gave birth to eight puppies -- seven males and one female, according to the Tampa Fire Rescue.

The puppies’ father, a yellow lab named Nugget who is also a service dog, was also at the airport at the time of the birth.
