Bachelor Party In The Woods Takes A Wild Turn Once An Uninvited Guest Shows Up

In 2016, Mitchel Craddock couldn�t wait
for the biggest day of his young life. The Vicksburg, Michigan, man was weeks away
from his wedding, but he had a few items to cross off his list before tying the knot. In particular, Mitchel had his bachelor party
coming up! It would give him some quality time with his
best buds before he settled into the married life, but he asked his pals to keep it simple. Of course, nothing ever goes according to
plan. He and six friends drove down to a Tennessee
cabin, which would serve as their home base while they did some serious four-wheeling. It was the perfect spot to relax, as it seemed
like there was nobody else around for miles. Once they arrived, the bros agreed they had
to fuel up as if they were going to party for the next five days. Naturally, Mitchel plopped an economy pack
of bacon on the stove, and its greasy aroma wafted through the window�where more than
just the friends caught a whiff. See, while the bachelors all savored the bacon
scent, it turned out they weren�t the only ones. The festivities suddenly came to a halt when
one of Mitchel�s friends pointed to a furry face that appeared by the front door. A dog appearing out of nowhere � that sounded
like the best bachelor party ever! The friends dubbed her Annie, after Little
Orphan Annie. While they hoped she�d keep them company
while they played drinking games, Annie refused to even come inside. Instead, Annie barked repeatedly and ran in
circles outside the cabin. When Mitchel and his friends wandered out
to investigate, the dog bolted back into the woods. She was easy to follow, as she left a trail
of pawprints in the mud. Mitchel finally caught up to Annie, who was
pacing around a small hollow in the forest. As he heard a slight rumbling from inside,
the groom-to-be put two and two together. Peering inside, he locked eyes with a newborn
puppy! He looked pretty malnourished, so Mitchel
reached down to lend a hand. However, he froze when he noticed something
extraordinary. Annie had led them to not just one puppy,
but her entire litter! Seven helpless canines gazed up lovingly at
the friends. By all appearances, they�d been out in the
wilderness for a few days without food or shelter. Their rescuers would have to act fact. The partiers whisked the canines back to their
cabin. Taking the pooled money they planned on using
for beer and pizza, they made a run to the store and stocked up on pet supplies. Maybe some guys would resent their bachelor
weekend turning into a puppy extravaganza, but not Mitchel. A lifelong dog lover, he welcomed the unexpected
guests with open arms. Still, he had a few questions. None of the dogs were wearing collars, and
yet they appeared to be domesticated. Were they all runaways from some nearby house,
or did they just have no place to go? With the limited resources available in the
cabin, Mitchel and his pals cared for the dogs as best they could for the remaining
days of their trip. It was clear, however, that the animals required
medical attention after spending days in the forest. Back home, Mitchel brought the pups to the
vet. Fortunately, they didn�t have any problems
beyond slight malnutrition and a few nasty bugs. There still remained the matter of a potential
owner, of course. The boys sent photos of the dogs all around. After a few weeks, Mitchel heard nothing but
radio silence. That made it official � the dogs were all
theirs! Each attendee of the bachelor party could
take home a puppy, though that still left a dog left over� That, however, turned out to be no problem
at all. Mitchel�s mom gladly accepted the final
dog, while each of the cabin boys got to name their own puppy. That�s not a bad party favor! Even after Mitchel�s big day, the dogs did
a fantastic job of keeping this friend group together. Though life pulled them in different directions,
they always had a reason to set up a canine play date. For Mitchel, it also set him up with a nice
little family right before he married his wife! Though he was a hero for rescuing those pups,
he knew his own pooch could someday return the favor.
