Good service dog makes it into school yearbook right next to his human

Good service dog makes it into school yearbook right next to his humanService dogs deserve recognition for the great deeds they perform daily. To them, they aren't even great deeds. They are just ... deeds. Andrew "AJ" Schalk, a 16-year-old junior at Stafford High School in Virginia, certainly wanted to give his service dog, Alpha, the respect that was deserved for someone who has saved his life several times. So he asked his school if they'd be willing to give his dog a spot in the yearbook, and the result is adorable.  That's a GOOD dog if I've ever seen one. SEE ALSO: Inspirational golden retriever perfectly demonstrates how to get swole for the summer Just a boy and his (service) dog pic.twitter.com/uM5f9P9X3V — AJ (@t1dfighter_aj) May 18, 2017 Schalk was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2009. "The decision to get a service dog came about just to have greater control over my blood sugar and A1C, and Alpha has even saved my life on multiple occasions," Schalk said. As Schalk's service dog, Alpha's job is to alert Schalk if his blood sugar is getting too low or too high by sniffing his breath. If undetected, Schalk could be in danger. But with Alpha on the case, he has peace of mind. Andrew Schalk and his good boy, Alpha.Image: Andrew SchalkAlpha joined Schalk's family when he was four months old, and has now been with Schalk for three and a half years. Halfway through the previous school year, Schalk started bringing Alpha with him to school. "I started by bringing him once a week, then twice, and so on and so forth until he was fully acclimated," Schalk explained. Alpha is now a consistent presence at Stafford High, attending classes with Schalk every day. Image: andrew schalk"Alpha is not a distraction at all!" Schalk said. "He lays under my desk during class, and even though everyone knows he is there, everyone still pays attention to class and loves having him there." Who wouldn't love knowing that there is a dog nearby at all times? We sure wouldn't mind. Alpha is so beloved at the school, in fact, that when Schalk asked if he could be in the yearbook the request was happily granted. "I talked to a friend of mine in the yearbook club and asked of we could get Alpha into the yearbook," Schalk said. "She took it to the teacher in charge and all the teachers and administration were 100% supportive." Good boy Alpha also got himself an official student ID. Alpha clearly dressed up for picture day.Image: andrew schalk"All my classmates loved seeing Alpha in the yearbook," Schalk said. "And people that I didn't know loved the surprise of having a service dog in the yearbook." Schalk, a junior, has one more year of high school left, and that means Alpha gets to make another yearbook cameo.  "I for sure plan on having him in the yearbook next year as well," Schalk confirmed.

Charging bear attacks hunter in terrifying encounter caught on video

Charging bear attacks hunter in terrifying encounter caught on videoA Canadian hunter is lucky to be alive after being attacked by a black bear. Richard Wesley was bow hunting near Fire River, Ontario, when he noticed a large black bear roaming nearby. At first, the bear seemed unfazed by Wesley's presence, but when the hunter makes a sound in an attempt to scare off the approaching bear, it charges. Wesley attempts to make as much noise as possible, and even punches the attacking bear in the face. The camera falls and the hunter returns just a few seconds later, visibly shook by the near death experience. "I should have shot a long time ago," Wesley says into the camera just seconds after the attack.  Luckily, the hunter walked away nearly unscathed.  "No wounds except a bruised elbow and ego where the bear threw me down," Wesley wrote on YouTube.  "Genuinely happy that this was a non fatal or tragic outcome."

Brand new Model 3 spy shot surfaces online

Brand new Model 3 spy shot surfaces online

It's probably fair to say that Tesla's upcoming Model 3 is the most anticipated vehicle release in years, if not decades. While new car releases from luxury car makers often drum up excitement, it's rare to see an immense level of curiosity and excitement surrounding the release of a $35,000 car designed for the mass market. And yet, Tesla has managed to create an air of intrigue for the Model 3, a feat made all the more impressive given that Tesla hasn't marketed the car at all. In fact, Elon Musk recently said that Tesla will be "anti-selling" the Model 3, which is to say that it won't even be offering prospective buyers test drives.

Now the reason why the Model 3 has engendered so much interest isn't too hard to figure out. Put simply, Tesla is promising to give users a taste of its luxury Model S for just a fraction of the price, albeit in a slightly smaller design and with fewer bells and whistles. Nonetheless, interest in the Model 3 went through the roof immediately after its unveiling, with early reservations quickly reaching the 380,000 threshold, a feat that surprised even Tesla executives.

With so much interest in the Model 3 -- a dynamic partially attributable to the fact that Tesla has yet to reveal what the final version will look like -- it's become something of an activity for Tesla enthusiasts to take photos of Model 3 vehicles out on the open road during testing. Not surprisingly, the frequency with which Model 3 spy shots now seem to surface has increased as we get ever closer to mass production, which Tesla maintains will still begin in July.

The most recent Model 3 spy shot comes to us via Reddit and features a white Model 3 with roof racks. The photo isn't terribly revealing but it does give us a really great view of the Model 3's slightly altered front design.

Some additional Model 3 photos and spy shots that you might have missed over the past few weeks are embedded below.
