In 2002 Amy Jones life was forever changed after a tragic skiing accident left her a quadriplegic.

Two years later she was paired with Skeeter, a trained service dog. Jones went back to school to get her undergraduate degree, then on to law school.

On Saturday Jones graduated from Baylor University, Skeeter by her side.

As Jones got her juris doctor degree on Saturday, Skeeter received an honorary law degree.

"Amy has busted through brick walls, and Skeeter has been faithfully by her side every step of the way," law school Dean Brad Toben said. "Skeeter has become a part of our community and part of our family here at the law school."

Not only is this an inspiring story, now I know who to call if our "kids" get in trouble with the law. It's not easy finding a canine with a law degree in the phone book.
