The "Today" show welcomed a 10-week-old puppy named Wrangler to its set one year ago to help educate the public on service dogs. With more than 8 million visually impaired persons in the United States, Wrangler set out to raise awareness about the role of service animals and the training that goes into preparing them. Wrangler will officially graduate from training and become a guide dog this month. The "Today" staff said a tearful goodbye on his last day.
