Snuggles the Rescue Dog’s Tongue-in-Cheek ‘Baby’ Photos Go Viral

snuggles viral baby photosWe’ve all seen them — those very adorable, slightly cheesy professional photographs of parents coddling their newborns. Could anything be sweeter?

Why, yes. (Well, at least if you think puppies are just as cute as babies.)

Pictures of rescue dog Snuggles, seen in typical baby-picture poses with her pet parents Jan and Chase Renagar (who happen to be professional portrait photographers), are going viral.

The pictures of the Huntsville, Ala., family were snapped by their friend Jamie Clauss, who’s a professional infant photographer and owner of Count It Joy Photography. Jan had mentioned to Jamie that she would love to use her services some day, after she and Chase started a family. Jamie said, Why wait?

“She jokingly said, ‘We should just use Snuggles,’ and then we just laughed about it for a while,” Jan told WHNT. “And then she’s like, ‘No, we really should,’ and I’m like, ‘Okay, let’s do it!’”

Jamie said she had no inkling that the photos, posted last week, would be viewed by millions of people on the internet.

“I never thought it would become this worldwide phenomenon,” she told WHNT. “I’m just kinda riding this wave right now.”

Jamie said she’s been asked about — and will definitely consider —  doing more photo shoots of four-legged “babies” and their pet parents.
