Golden Retriever Gives Birth To Green Puppy
WKMG ^ | November 9, 2005 | WKMG

Posted on 11/09/2005 5:19:54 PM PST by andyk

A dog breeder in Alhambra, Calif., is mystified after his golden retriever gave born to a green puppy, according to a Local 6 News report.

The green puppy, named Wasabi, was one of four puppies born five days ago.

The dog is healthy and green, according to the report.

Local 6 News showed video of the puppy rolling around with its normal-looking newborn brothers and sisters.

Skeptics said the dog had to be dyed green but the owner said the puppy was born green.

Veterinarians said it is possible for a newborn puppy's fur to be green because the placenta, which is green, rubs off at birth.

Watch Local 6 News for more on this story.

Which seems to mean this might not be a permanent situation.

Their placenta is green?

Is that true for people, too?

The Golden Retriever mom did this just to get a laugh.

(All who know Goldens and their behavior know what I'm talking about.)

"Veterinarians said it is possible for a newborn puppy's fur to be green because the placenta, which is green, rubs off at birth."

Humm, veterinarians or vegiterinarians? I've been there for birthin' many animal babies of many species but I have yet to see a green placenta. Sometimes the mucous plug comes out in a variety of colors including very intense green. But a green placenta would probably indicate a dead (long prior to parturition) placenta.

This puppy wandered into a very early Easter egg dyeing party. This puppy wasn't born with a green coat ...

It's mostly a dark red. The fetal membranes have a grayish color, though.

I've seen it more in dogs than cats. I remember the first time I saw it as a young girl... was completely grossed out.

My son was born 2 1/2 months premature. My wife had tumbled down the stairs and broke her water. At the hospital, they tried to stop the labor that began to occur and were successful for a couple of days until an infection entered the womb.

I don't know about the placenta, but the umbilical cord was bright green when he was delivered. I remember it vividly.

My son turned out fine, btw. He's joining the Marine Corps as an officer after he finishes his senior year at A&M.

I haven't seen the birth of many animals but was surprised to hear about the green color. Too bad one of the puppys isn't red, best sellers at Christmas, lol!

That's highly unlikely, considering that most of those talking green these days are jackasses.

I was told it was an amazing experience. It was October 20,1989 that I decided I never wanted to be a gynecologist and would ever even joke about wanting to be one ever again.
