They Took A Boy’s Picture For The Yearbook. When You See The Picture Next To His, Unbelievable!Ashley Maisano
Harry Hulse, a 15-year-old sophomore at Northern Guilford High School, in Greensboro, North Carolina, is a type 2 diabetic who gets a helping hand…or paw. His service dog, Taffy, alerts Harry when his blood sugar is getting out of whack by pawing him. He does it at least 12-13 times a day to warn Harry to treat himself with either insulin or food.
They are together 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so Taffy is practically just another student at the high school. Since Taffy is always there, the school decided to put Taffy’s photo in the yearbook, right alongside his human.
The yearbook staff kept it a secret so that it would be a surprise when they were handed out at the end of the school year. Having Taffy’s photo in the yearbook meant a lot to Hulse. “It’s a surreal feeling; the feeling of having my best friend next to me. He’s always right there, right next to me,” he told CNN.
