Meet Terri Graham, a 44-year-old mother of two from California – who breastfeeds her dog, Spider.
Graham first started breastfeeding Spider when the dog started licking the teat of the bottle she had filled to breastfeed her son… And the rest is rather bizarre history.
The 44-year-old mother of two who couldn’t breastfeed her children turned to a rather unorthodox way of fulfilling her maternal desire by breastfeeding her 9-year-old daughter’s pug.
In an interview with ‘Closer’ magazine, Graham said people called her a freak but she is finally getting the breastfeeding experience she missed out on with my children. “Having Spider suck on my boob means I finally feel complete and a better mother,” she said.
“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.”
Well, yes, amazing it is. But is ‘being breastfed’ as amazing as the dog tricks below? Actually, don’t answer that. In fact, it’s probably best not to think about it too much at all…
However, Graham isn’t the first woman to admit to breastfeeding her dog.
According to Inquisitr.com, a British woman named Suzanna Morgan said she gave her dog, Dixie, a bottle of breast milk she had pumped to get her pet to stop barking when no dog food was left in the house
Closer interviewed a psychologist who told the magazine that Graham should seek therapy.
