Therapy Dog Story

AJ’s schoolmates are already fond of Alpha’s presence at school. This is why it did not come as a surprise when the dog got included in their yearbook.

According to the boy, the journal shall serve as an apt reminder for him that he survived school through the help of Alpha. In the same way, the boy wants his batchmates and classmates to remember the pooch through the yearbook.
