The New Hampshire Department of Corrections recently held a graduation ceremony for two service dogs.
The dogs were trained by inmates at the New Hampshire State Prison as part of a partnership with Pathways to Hope of Casco, Maine.
A third dog participated in the 18-month program, but did not complete training. It was given an honorable discharge and permitted to attend the ceremony. That dog will be placed in a home in the Concord area.
The Insiders gave the graduates and almost-graduate caps to mark the occasion. So yes, the photo was tampered with. But only a little.
