A dog groomer in Leicestershire threw in the towels and the result is an adorable doggy Nativity scene!

Jo Kingston is the owner of Wags To Riches Pet Services, a dog walking and grooming business in Mountsorrel, Leicestershire, and she said her business is going crazy because of an image she posted on her Twitter page earlier this month.

As is often the case with viral pictures, a random Twitter user found the picture adorbs and re-tweeted. That’s all it took for it to go viral, and it has been re-tweeted almost 30,000 times since.

Kingston says she is a small-scale business, and she had no idea her pic had taken off. She was tagged in the photo by a friend who advised her that she’d gone viral, and Kingston says since, things have been bonkers.

When she was asked how she got the pups to sit so regally for such a picture, she said she used food and the right dogs for the shot. She said she wanted to just share a nice picture that made people happy, and that people love seeing dogs, particularly when wearing towels on their heads.

Kingston says she is a bit surprised at how many people have been messaging her, saying she didn’t expect quite the hoopla the picture has raised.

But c’mon. Look at “Baby Jesus.” What did she expect but total and complete adoration?!
