NASA astronaut Leland Melvin was photographed with his two rescue dogs, Jake and Scout, during his official astronaut portrait shoot. Two photos were taken with the dogs. One features the two dogs excitedly jumping onto Melvin, and the other shows them calmly sitting at his site.

Melvin uses the photo of the dogs jumping on him as his Twitter profile photo, but NASA still uses a dogless photo of Melvin from 2009 on his official astronaut bio page.
