Two Service Dogs Make Appearance in High School Yearbook

Rebecca OConnell

Two adorable service dogs show up ready to work each day at a Minnesota high school, including picture day.

Dakota and Caramel are two service dogs that work at Blaine High School in Blaine, Minn. Dakota works with Rebecca Thomas, a hearing-impaired teacher, and Caramel works with Vicky Camacho, a paraprofessional who works in special education. Both service dogs are listed on the staff page of the yearbook and have been featured for several years. 

"I think it recognizes the important role that Dakota and her owner, Vicky, play in the lives of our students," Lynn Florman, head of the special education department, told Yahoo Canada. "There are also many students outside of the special education department that know Dakota and enjoy stopping to say hello to her. Sometimes the unique services they provide are not understood or valued by others, so seeing them recognized in such a public and memorable way as a yearbook sends a strong message to all that they are an integral part of the team that supports our students." 

Dakota is such a popular pooch, she even had her own yearbook page after she had puppies.
