Service dogs featured in Minnesota high school yearbook

(As heard this morning on

Service dogs at a Minnesota high school are receiving some special recognition. The dogs, Dakota and Carmel, belong to two Blaine High School teachers and are featured in the yearbook under the staff section. One of the teachers is hearing impaired and uses the dog to help teach American sign language. The other teacher works in special education and brings her dog in to work with students. The yearbook advisor says the dogs bridge the different populations at the school and make everyone smile.
