Blaine High School is recognizing two "staff" helpers by giving them a prominent place in the yearbook.

Caramel and Dakota are service dogs who come to school with their human staff members, and they're featured right alongside other teachers in the yearbook, Yahoo Canada reported.

Caramel belongs to Rebecca Thomas, a hearing-impaired American Sign Language teacher, and has been coming to the school every day for nine years, Yahoo notes.

Dakota is at school once a week with owner Vicky Camacho, a paraprofessional in the special education department, to work with students, Yahoo says.

Two years ago, Dakota even got a quote in the yearbook, according to a post on Reddit, and when she had puppies, she got her own section, Yahoo adds.

Staff at the school told Yahoo students love the dogs and will seek them out to say hello during the day. A student posted a dogs' yearbook photos on Tumblr, saying "it's amazing" the dogs get their own place in the yearbook.

The high school's yearbook adviser told KARE 11 the dogs make people smile and also "bridge the different populations at the school."

Blaine High School seniors graduate Tuesday, according to the school's website.
