Ironically, Taxi failed out of guide dog school for having a "cat destruction problem," but that never got in the way of helping seventh grader Rachel Benke.

Rachel is epileptic, and for the past four years Taxi has been by her side to help her in case of a seizure. In one instance, Taxi knew that Rachel was about to have a seizure so he separated her from her classmates and wouldn't let anyone near he until paramedics arrived.

Still, this yearbook story isn't the most unexpected we've seen lately. The other week, a high school in Utah was called out for photoshopping clothes onto female classmates to make their clothing more conservative. Bare arms and low necklines were all covered up.
