  • Photographer Jill Engel took school pictures at M. J. Kaufman Elementary School in Louisiana.
  • Rowdy, a diabetic alert dog for a student named Daegan, got his own photo.
  • Rowdy wore a bow tie and the internet can’t handle how adorable he is.

On school picture day, students, teachers, and faculty members all take their turns sitting in front of a backdrop and smiling for their yearbook photos. At M. J. Kaufman Elementary School in Louisiana, this lineup included Rowdy the service dog.

According to a Facebook page highlighting his role, Rowdy is a diabetic alert dog for a student named Daegan, who has Type 1 diabetes.

Rowdy, it seems, also has a penchant for bow ties.

Photographer Jill Engel posted a photo of his portrait on Twitter.

“I’m a school photographer and we got to take a service dog’s picture for the yearbook today,” she wrote, accompanied by three crying emojis.

People couldn’t handle the cuteness.

This isn’t the first time a dog’s yearbook photo has gone viral. Previously, a service dog named Linda, who helps a student with spina bifida navigate her wheelchair through the halls of Orange City Elementary School in Florida, also appeared in the school’s yearbook and even received an honorary plaque, Today reported.

Another dog named Miss Peanut also had her picture in an unidentified school’s yearbook, as have many other good dogs.

At this rate, Rowdy is looking like a strong contender for homecoming king.

Engel did not respond to INSIDER’s request for comment.
