As of Tuesday, Chanel and LeeRoy are now the proud parents of a new litter of puppies.
But just a few days before, the pair celebrated their last few days of freedom with a maternity photoshoot far superior to any human’s.
LeeRoy’s owner Amy Rients tells Mashable that the happy couple found one another through a mutual friend.
“Our dogs kind of got match made by our dog groomer,” she says. “She’s actually my very best friend, and she knew we were kind of, not looking actively, but we had not neutered our dog just in case we wanted to breed him. When she ran across Chanel, she gave [Sorensen] our phone number.”
A few days before the due date, Rients brought LeeRoy to Chanel’s owner Kennedy Sorensen’s farm to stage the shoot. When Sorensen shared the finished product on Twitter, their story blew up. The tweet itself garnered more than 37,000 likes and 22,000 retweets.
Sorensen tells Mashable that the puppies are in good health, adding, “Chanel is an amazing mother!”
