Alpha is Ryan Schalk's service dog. Alpha can alert Ryan a full half hour before he has a blood sugar issue.
Alpha has saved Ryan's life by alerting him to high and low blood sugar issues, even in the middle of the night.
Ryan's classmates are so used to seeing Alpha by his side, they thought Alpha should have his photo in the yearbook. With Ryan's last name of course!
