A young woman and her service dog caused quite a stir over the weekend when they both showed up to her college graduation ceremony dressed in matching caps and gowns.
On Sunday, this photograph — which shows the graduate at the side of the stage in a wheelchair accompanied by her pooch — went viral after it was posted online by Redditor tcjones54:
“The girl and the dog received the loudest applause hands down. Very adorable,” tcjones54 wrote.
According to posts on Reddit, the photo was taken at the Saturday convocation ceremony of the College of Applied Health Sciences at the University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign.
“This picture is everything that is right in the world,” wrote Redditor AndreThreeHundred.
Then, a day after the original post went viral, the woman in the photograph uploaded another picture to Reddit.
“This is my service dog, Hero, after we graduated with our Master’s degrees at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign,” she wrote in a caption accompanying this Imgur photo.
