Elina documented the pair's journey on her TikTok account, @pieceofellu.
"Our 3-year-old dog Kikka was pregnant at the same time as me," Elina told Newsweek.
"Kikka has been by my side the whole time of her pregnancy," Elina continued.
"I think she understood that we are both in the same situation."
