“It was amazing,” Grillo said of the session. “It felt like she understood everything, and made sensational poses. It was like she was smiling.”

The photographer’s timing was perfect. The day after her sensational photo session, the mom-to-be gave birth to five healthy puppies — four boys and one girl.

Even better, all the mini-pinscher mixes have found homes with friends of Lilica’s family, so reunions should be easy .
