Boy’s Service Dog Gets Picture in Yearbook

Presley, a Goldendoodle service dog, earned a spot in the Good Hope Middle School yearbook in Louisiana alongside Seph Ware, the 14-year-old boy she accompanies everywhere. Ware, who’s in 7 th grade, lives with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a degenerative disorder that makes muscles weaker and weaker. "When it came time to putting the yearbook together, there was no question that Presley had to be included in it because she's part of our school,” said yearbook adviser Sonya Hogg. "She gives [Seph] more confidence and some maturity, and is a great help to him." Seph’s mother, Lori Watkins-Ware, shared the photo of the two side-by-side in the yearbook, on Facebook last week. — See more at CNN
