Ruby, a three-year-old golden retriever in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, did not appear to be excited about breastfeeding her litter of a dozen puppies on July 9, video posted by their breeder shows.
Footage recorded by Kurt Schmitt shows the canine mother running away from her huge brood of puppies after they are released from an indoor pen.
Schmitt can be heard saying, “What’s the matter, mama?” and “run, mama, run” before the adorable pups catch up with her.
Speaking to Storyful, Schmitt said, “The golden retriever puppies are five and a half weeks old” and chasing their mother for breakfast is part of their “daily routine.”
Once the puppies are old enough to leave their mom they will be sent to new homes all across America including in Lake Tahoe and Seattle, he added. Credit: Kurt Schmitt via Storyful
