Wonders shall never cease. Call it milk of kindness from a mother to her dog, and you will not be far off target.
This is the world of Terri Graham, a 44-year-old
mother of two from from California – who breastfeeds her pet pug, Spider.
“I’m finally getting the breastfeeding experience I missed out on with my children,” she tells the 20 October issue of ‘Closer’ magazine.
“People may say I’m a freak, but having Spider suck on
my boob means I finally feel complete and a better mother.”
Graham first started breastfeeding the “runt of the litter and underweight” Spider when the pug started licking the teat of the bottle she had filled to breastfeed her son… And the rest is rather bizarre history.
“Her tongue tickles and I do feel her teeth, but she latches on in a way that they don’t hurt me,” she explains.
“I breastfeed Spider in front of the kids and they think it’s amazing.”
