On July 25, a 16-year-old namedAtalia tweeted a picture from her sister's maternity shoot that has since been retweeted over 44,000 times, mainly because instead of the classic two-handed "mommy's and partner's hands on the baby bump" pose, there's a third hand—and it's actually a paw.

The human subjects of this picture are Whitney (Talia's sister) and Jeremy Bowie. The canine one is their enthusiastic rat terrier, Lucy. Whitney told BuzzFeed that they were doing a traditional maternity shoot with her mother taking pictures, and that Lucy was hell bent on being part of them, jumping up on their legs. So they relented, because, as Whitney said, Lucy is "part of [their] family." But no, she's not the father.
