Maternity shoots are there to celebrate the magic of life and the beauty of women during this very special time—but more importantly, to spotlight the fabulousness of a super-pregnant dog named Lillica, who gave birth to five puppies a day after her shoot with Ana Paulo Grillo in Brazil.
As Ms. Grillo told Bored Panda, Lillica nailed the whole photo shoot in just 20 minutes, much faster than most humans. "It was amazing, I felt like I understood her completely," the photographer said.
"She made sensational poses!" raved Grillo. And there's no doubt that as taut as this doggie may seem, she's got that glow, and in spades.
Lillica's five puppies born the next day have all found homes with her owners' family members, so they'll all be able to visit and play together.
Even though Lillica's owners sound like good people who made smart decisions about what to do with their puppies, you should get your pet spayed and neutered because it's the responsible thing to do. Unless you're a trustworthy breeder, in which case please be sure to get your dogs to take pictures like these.
