Kodie, a 2-year-old golden retriever, recently welcomed five male and four female puppies.
Kodie first gained online attention for her sweet maternity photos, snapped by her owner, Chelsie Garrels.
"Kodie's a great mama, she immediately started cleaning them and nursing right away," Garrels told "Good Morning America." "She was pouting when I was taking photos because I had two of the puppies with me. She started pouting until I gave them back."
Kodie's due date was Jan. 9, but she gave birth at 3:30 a.m. on Jan. 14. Garrels said she let her sons Wyatt, 8, and Morgan, 5, play hooky so they could meet the pups.
Kodie will stay with the breeder and her puppies until they're 8 weeks old.
Several of the pups are already spoken for and one of the females will go home with Garrels' cousin, she said.
