STAFFORD, Va — It’s that time of the year for every student in school, yearbooks!

One Virginia school is going viral online for a special reason. When students at Stafford High School opened their yearbooks, they saw a special friend pictured next to other students. That special friend was a Labrador Retriever named Alpha Schalk. Andrew Schalk’s service dog (pictured next to him).

Alpha attends class with Andrew everyday. When it came time for school pictures, Andrew asked to include his furry friend Alpha and the school administration was all for it and took their pictures.
