Going to the Dogs

This is such a cool article about Autism Assitance Dogs. I just had to share the link here.

Whenver I read about service dogs I think that it's a manifestation of healed communion between God and humans and animals. Beautiful. The way it should be.

...not that I'm about to rush out and get a dog or anything like that...

Alana,

This is remarkable. These dogs are a blessing of God for His children.

As a person with Asperger Syndrome myself I can relate to the feelings of lonliness that some of these children are going through. Even today I only have a very small number of friends.

Although I didn't have an Autism dog growing up I did have an angel dog, my Golden Retriever, Sunshine. She always seemed to know how I was feeling. She died in 1999. She will not be forgotten.

Thank you for sharing this.

God bless you and your family.

I have a friend with a child who has neurological issues and they are training a service dog for him. Very cool.
