Washington, Oct 18: A mother of two from California, who couldn’t breastfeed her children, is now fulfilling her maternal desire by breastfeeding her 9-year-old daughter’s dog, a pug named Spider.
Terri Graham, 44, said that she knows some people might consider her a “freak,” but insisted that her breastfeeding nourishes the dog, and makes her feel like a better mom.
“Having Spider suckle on my boob means I finally feel complete and a better mother,” the Huffington Post quoted her as telling Closer magazine.
Graham claimed that the dog developed a taste for breast milk in 2010 after licking the nipple of a bottle she had pumped for her then-newborn son.
She said that she has breastfed the dog for about 2 years.
A photo of the article about Graham was posted to a Reddit forum devoted to strange and outrageous news, where it quickly received more than 2,000 “upvotes” and rose to the site’s front page. (ANI)
