TAFT, California — The puppy countdown is on for Chanel, a golden retriever who wound up finding internet fame after her owner posted photos from a canine maternity shoot on social media.

Chanel’s owner, Kennedy Sorensen, of Taft, California, posted photos on Twitter of her “fur baby,” where they have already received more than 22,000 retweets and 36,000 likes.

The photos show Chanel in a flower necklace posing with LeeRoy, the puppies’ father. Amy Rients, LeeRoy’s owner and a professional photographer, took the photos that have become an internet sensation, but she says the idea for the shoot came from Sorensen.

“I never intended these fun photos to make such fuss in our world, they were taken for pure fun,” Rients posted on Facebook. “Kennedy Sorensen and I have definitely experienced something new and surreal.”

The shoot apparently took only an hour, made possible by “lots of treats and patience,” Sorensen said.

Chanel is expected to deliver by Oct. 12.
