Pregnant Dog Gets Her Own Maternity Photo Shoot

Maternity photos capture the beauty of pregnancy. They display the love shared between parents and their anticipation of new life. Usually these sessions are of baby humans, but these people brilliantly show that maternity photo shoots can be for our canine friends too.

According to People Magazine, Kennedy Sorenson, owner of Chanel the pregnant golden retriever, came up with the awesome idea 9 days before her dog was due to give birth. She contacted Amy Rients, a talented photographer and owner of LeeRoy the future father of the puppies, to run the idea past her, and she agreed.  The adorable images show Chanel wearing a flower wreath and LeeRoy wearing a blue bandana. The pups are lovingly posing side by side next to a sign that reads “9 days until Puppies.”

The photos were initially shared to Twitter where they have since gone viral with over 37k likes and 22k retweets.

Rients recently posted to her company’s Facebook page where she states “I never intended these fun photos to make such a fuss in our world, they were taken for pure fun.” Sharing that many news stations and web pages have contacted them, ranging from People.com to Disney.com. They are crossing their fingers for a call from the Ellen show.

Check out the pictures of the adorable little puppies after Chanel finally gave birth. Share if you want Rients to do you dog’s maternity and family pictures!

Homeless Dog Is Rescued And Gets Instagramed At Pet-Friendly Restaurants In LA

When Popeye’s mom, Ivy, found him, she wasn’t in the market for a pooch because her house was too full. Ivy said, “he was such a mess – super skinny, heavily matted, dirty.” How could she say no? After moving in with Ivy and her husband, it wasn’t long before Popeye got an extreme makeover and found himself accustomed to the finer things in life.

Popeye along with his mom and dad are regulars at pet-friendly dining establishments in Los Angeles. A far cry from the life he lived before Ivy. Like anyone else in LA they document their meals on Instagram.

Ivy said “One of my friends, Jen, suggested that I create an Instagram account for Popeye because he was cute. Jen and I liked to go on what we call ‘Instagram dates’ and take pics of our food. I’d bring Popeye any time I can, and we realized he was really good around food. He doesn’t lunge for food or really even care for it. He just liked to be out. He’ll get nibbles of anything that’s safe for him. I also carry a bag of treats for him, in case there’s nothing he can have.”

Popeye now has over 108k followers on his Instagram, so if you’re trying to watch what you eat, at least you can vicariously live through this foodie cutie. Get your grub on Popeye!
