It’s extremely common to see stories of service dogs walking with their owners in graduation ceremonies. And why wouldn’t they?
After all, these amazing dogs help make accomplishments like graduation possible and for many owner’s their dog is there supporting them every step of the way. But this story is not quite like the others.
Meet Cletus, a black Pit Bull and faithful service dog who walked at his owner’s graduation this past weekend, alone.
Kelly explains to ABC, that Cletus had always been there for his son. EMS crews in Idaho Falls found Josh collapsed numerous times along the route of Josh and Cletus’s two-mile walk to school, but Cletus was always there standing over him, protecting him.
And once again Cletus was there for Josh in an emotional walk across the stage. Josh received his bachelor of science in geology posthumously.
