Lilica, star of canine maternity shoot, shows off her puppies

She first came to the attention of the public when her delightful maternity shoot went viral

Now Lilica the four-year-old pinscher mix has starred in a new shoot with her five puppies, born just one day after her pregnancy photo session. 

Brazilian photographer Ana Paula Grillo shared the photos on her Facebook page - and Lilica looks just as happy and obliging to pose as she did last time. 

The puppies have been adopted by loving families, but will remain with mum Lilica until they are old enough to be separated from her.
