(Scroll down for video) A woman said that she had no choice but to breastfeed her dog, CNN reported.
The woman of Colorado, who chose to remain anonymous due to fear, felt that her dog had only an hour to live after refusing to drink from a bottle. The dog’s mother died.
“The dog did not move and I just did it,” the woman explained her decision to nurse the animal.
“I do not know what else to do. I was desperate and I just could not stand being there watching it die,” she said.
The woman said she felt weird about the whole thing, but still posted a photo of her breastfeeding the dog on her Facebook page.
Some people praised the woman for the lengths she was willing to go to save the life of the puppy, but others were not so understanding.
“That’s disgusting. Why is she feeding a puppy?” One person commented.
The woman also has a one-year-old child.
The woman said that she is no longer breastfeeding her child, and the dog now drinks from a bottle.
