According to Mental Floss, no one really knows when or why photographers started telling people to say “Cheese” before they snapped a picture. But speaking that word does put your mouth in a perfect position to smile and flash your teeth, and there’s no better illustration of that than this dog.

Amanda Robles is fostering the handsome little guy, named Herbert, as he recovers from the dog flu, ABC News reports. Somehow, she’s convinced him to give a massive, toothy smile every time she says, “Say cheese!” He cheeses twice in a now-viral video clip she shared on Facebook (but at this point, we’ve lost track of how many times we’ve watched him do it).
And if you needed something else to make you smile, the personable pup will be put up for adoption within the next two weeks. Herbert will be available through PAWS Chicago, so you can just look for the dog who’s smiling in his picture.
