THE WORLD THIS WEEK
A Dalmatian dog has had a record-breaking litter of 18 puppies. Mum Button is the daughter of one of the dogs that starred in the remake of Disney’s famous film 101 Dalmatians. She has got so many pups that she has to have help from her owners to feed them all. But she’s had plenty of practice — in 2007 she had another massive litter of 15 pups.
