Astronauts + Dogs = Love!

Look at this guy!

His name is Leland Orser and he's an astronaut. This is his official NASA portrait!

Hos dogs weren't meant to be in the picture with him...

NASA doesn't allow dogs, so to get his beloved pooches in the shot with him, Leland had to sneak them in a van with music blaring to mask their barks

He's been called the coolest astronaut in the world...

And originally wasn't going to be an astronaut at all - he was going to play American football but hurt his knee! Amazing! And his selfie game is excellent!
