Every expectant mother deserves to feel beautiful — even if she’s a dog.
The owner of a pregnant Golden retriever in California recently delighted many people online when she posted a maternity photo shoot featuring her pooch.
Five-year-old Chanel was due to give birth just days after the fun photos were taken, owner Kennedy Sorensen told Inside Edition.
"I saw a few people in my age group taking maternity pictures, so I thought it would be fun to do them for my dog," she said.
Her Oct. 1 tweet has more than 22,000 retweets.

The puppies’ father, LeeRoy, also starred in the shoot, according to Inside Edition, and his owner Amy Rients took the photos.
Chanel, a first-time mom, gave birth on Tuesday, Sorensen told The Huffington Post Canada. But she wouldn't reveal the size of the litter — potentially to milk (pun intended) a Twitter poll.
how many puppies do y'all think she had??

Sorensen said she plans to do another shoot with the puppies after their mother lays low for a few days.
You rest up, Chanel. And no one will judge you if you look a bit more weary in this next set of photos.
