Guide dog lands spot in yearbook

We already know that dog is mans best friend but who knew they could be so in tune to a persons well-being like Taxi is to Rachel?

Service dogs are widely accepted for a variety of disabilities, including visually impaired, hearing impaired or physically impaired.  Including dogs trained to recognize the onset of symptoms for diabetic and seizures.

From Today.com

This year, one of the photos in the yearbook at Hector Garcia Middle School is not like the other.

Pictured alongside the portraits of smiling students is one particularly friendly face — Taxi Benke, a service dog who looks out for 14-year-old Rachel Benke.

Rachel and Taxi have been inseparable for the last four years, ever since they were connected by Cindy Buechner, who trains seizure alert dogs. When Taxi first came into Buechner’s life, she immediately thought of Rachel’s mom Teresa who she’d met at a jewelry party, and knew the dog would be immensely helpful for the family.”They found us,” Teresa told TODAY.com.

“We hadn’t been looking into service dogs…we thought she might need one when she was older, but it was just a God thing that he found us.”
