This police dog just can’t stop loving. Conservation Officer Levi Knach and his faithful BFF Kenobi posed for an official photo shoot. But Kenobi had trouble acting “official” – unless we’re talking officially enamored. Indiana State Parks posted four photos on Facebook of the adorable portrait session. The pics of the chocolate lab kissing his partner quickly went viral, because they’re just too damn cute.

Officer Knach does his best to keep things professional, but caught off-gaurd, he can’t help but smile.

Knach and Kenobi are both members of Indiana’s Department of Natural Resources (DNR) law enforcement agency. Indiana DNR Law EnforcementThe pair work together to fight crime on conserved land in the Hoosier state.

But Kenobi never misses an opportunity to show his partner affection.

We all know that dogs are great at fighting crime.

But, we think Kenobi ought become the new mascot: McLovin’ the Crime Dog, with an updated slogan, “kiss crime away.”
