The couple, Matt Kay and Abby Lee, asked their friend Elisha Minnette, who runs a photo studio in Australia, to take the photos.

"Abby and I both work in the creative industry and have the craziest sense of humor always coming up with funny and random ideas to have a laugh," Minnette wrote on a blog post on her website. "We didn't plan anything for the shoot. The three of us were just bouncing around different ideas on the spot."

In the photos, Humphrey is posed in a stroller, wrapped in a blanket, and being cradled by Lee as if she were burping the puppy.

"Humphrey was a delight to shoot, he loved all the attention and the treats of course!" Minnette wrote.

The photographer posted the photos on her page to give people a “giggle” but was surprised when the album reached nearly 12,000 shares last Wednesday afternoon.

"I photograph all different types of shoots including newborns, so I knew what the normal baby shoots look like," she wrote. "We didn't ever intend to make fun of new parents sharing photos of their newborns, we just wanted to show a different kind of newborn."
