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

Hem... if the breeder himself wasn't so, well, green, he'd know for sure the placenta, especially if this pup was the last one to be born, IS green and if it stays in contact with the pup too long during delivery, it will stain ! :rolleyes:

Yep, when the placenta breaks down, it actually is a very dark green liquid and it stains everything ! But I mean this story could also be a hoax... who knows ! ;)

Well, the article says the guy's vet told him about the placenta and it not being totally unusual, but hey, this twit wants his 15 minutes.:rolleyes:
