Cap and gowns are meant to give everyone a uniform look, but one distinguished gentleman is sure to stand out at a Michigan High School’s graduation this June.
6-year-old service dog, Walton, will join his human17-year-old Desi for all of her graduation festivities says the Huffington post. Walton has been assisting the teen, who has cerebral palsy, for the past four years. From going to school, running errands, Walton is just like a normal teen. It’s a natural fit that he gets to graduate too.
Desi and Walton took their senior class photos together in cap and gown and they look great!
We should mention, handsome as he is, Walton is not the first dog to attend graduation so appropriately dressed. We found a few more amazing and special service dogs donning caps and gowns for graduation last year.
Labrador, Hero, escorted Bridget Evans at the convocation ceremony at the University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign. A photo of them wearing their caps and gowns went viral after being posted on Reddit.
Golden Retriever, Kirsch, didn’t just wear a cap and gown; he also received an honorary Master of Science in Counseling for attending all of his owner’s classes at John Hopkins University.
Labrador, Roxie, accompanied Reno through 62 credit hours of instruction at Delta College and traveled across the stage during graduation to receive recognition for her supporting role in his achievements.
