"I just thank God that everybody is safe, healthy and happy".

Tampa Fire Rescue captured photos as paramedics and a member of the local police helped the two-year-old Labrador, whose full name is Eleanor Rigby, a reference to The Beatles song.

The 2-year-old lab went into labor while her owner was waiting to board a flight to Philadelphia. James said they knew their dog was pregnant but experienced an early labor due to the excitement of being around several people at the airport.

Pictures posted to Tampa Fire Rescue's official Twitter show a crowd gathered around the dog in a terminal.
