Maternity photo shoots are nothing new, but when they feature a pregnant dog? Now that’s something we haven’t seen before! Ana Paula Grillo recently snapped photos of Lilica, a glowing pooch that looks like a proud mom-to-be in these sun-drenched images.
“It was amazing, I felt like I understood her completely,” Grillo told Bored Panda. “She made sensational poses!” And the celebratory photo session, which lasted only about 20 minutes, came just in time because Lilica gave birth to a litter of five puppies the very next day.
Since these playful photos were taken, the dog’s healthy offspring have been adopted by her human’s adult children and their families.
