- They therefore including Ryder in their maternity photoshoot
When Melody Wells and her husband, Eric, discovered they were expecting their first child, they naturally decided to have a maternity photoshoot.
They subsequently learned that their German shepherd, Ryder, was expecting too. As a result, they decided to include her and their other dog, Tango, in the photoshoot.
The Florida-based couple worked with photographer Kelly Matthews to capture the special moment — and the result was adorable.
Speaking to Caters News, 33-year-old Melody described the experience:
We thought it would be a funny spoof but it actually turned out to be something very cute.
They both really enjoyed getting involved and as Ryder and Tango are a big part of our lives it seemed like the right thing to do.
The photoshoot took place when Melody was eight months pregnant and Ryder seven and a half weeks, Briefly.co.za gathered.
The couple kept two puppies from Ryder's litter to grow up with their newborn baby.
