NASA astronauts often pose for lighthearted portraits, and here’s another fun example: astronaut Leland Melvin‘s official NASA portrait includes his two very excited rescue dogs, Jake and Scout.

Melvin says he snuck his two dogs into the photo studio on the day of his portrait back in 2009, and they both ended up in the picture with him. A second photo taken during the photo shoot shows the dogs in a calmer state, but it’s the one above that’s appearing everywhere.
