At a middle school in upstate New York, Oscer is a 3 year old service dog that accompanies 14-year-old Hudson Golebiewski, an eighth-grader who has autism. Just like the other students, the golden retriever was photographed and was placed in the school's yearbook next to Hudson.
Oscer started joining Hudson at school in 2015, when Hudson was in sixth grade. "He listens to me," Hudson says. It was the idea of assistant principal Ashley McKenna to include Oscer's picture in the yearbook. Hudson's mother, Bethany Golebiewski, says she's happy Oscer has been a part of her son's journey. As for Hudson, he was thrilled when he saw the yearbook photo of Oscer, who will accompany him in the fall to the high school. "It made me feel happy," he says.
