Pet owners are known to be the sort to go a little over the top. From specialised outfits, to lavish beds, pets often get better treatment than kids. But have you ever heard anyone go so far as to stage a maternity shoot for their dog?

Registered pug breeder Bec Panthera from Melbourne decided that a special occasion warranted a special photo shoot. So she organised a shoot for her expectant pug parents Simba and Nala. The initial shoot featured Nala in a Beyonce style pose, complete with tutu, and Simba reading a book on parenting.

Of course, once the babies were born there was a follow up shoot. This once featured such classic maternity poses as “swaddled baby (pug)” and “(pug) babies in bucket”.
