Eleanor Rigby - nicknamed Ellie for short - was all set to board her flight to Philadelphia at Tampa International Airport when it became clear that a more pressing matter was underway.

Travelers at the Tampa International Airport were in for quite a surprise when a service dog delivered puppies on Friday.

Tampa Fire Rescue team members stationed at the airport immediately responded. "She was going up to people and saying hello".

- It's not exactly airmail, but a very special delivery just wrapped up at Tampa International Airport.

James was talking to the Tampa Bay Times by phone from the airport when people started cheering in the background.

The pair knew two-year-old Eleanor was pregnant and their other dog, Nugget, was the father, but did not realise she was ready to give birth until the puppies arrived.

Finally, they all made their way into the world, one by one, and got cleaned up on a black and green blanket, before they could snuggle up to their mom.

Pictures posted to Tampa Fire Rescue's official Twitter show a crowd gathered around the dog in a terminal. Proud papa, "Nugget", was also on hand for the memorable moment.
