    My Son

    Several months ago when my wife and I were walking to the Labor Day WEBN fireworks she mentioned the possibility of getting a dog for my son. She read somewhere that a calm companion dog can be very beneficial for little children who have autism. I said it does not sound like a bad idea. We have not talked about it since. She walked in today with an English labrador. I asked her what she was thinking and she said “We talked about it and you said it’s not a bad idea.”

    Is the OP about MY Son or My Wife?

    I think I'll say to my wife, "Buying me a motorcycle is not a bad idea." I'll let you know what happens.

    Dogs are the best! Not familiar with your breed, but have had several dogs in my lifetime. Most love you unconditionally and conform to you own family lifestyle. I am sure you will fall in love with your new family member. Keep us up to date.

    I have two autistic nephews, and both had service dogs from 4 Paws. Those dogs made a tremendous difference in their lives.

    Click the "Insert Image" icon.

    On the "From Computer" tab, click "Choose File", and then locate the image you want to post on your computer or phone, and click the image to insert it. This will enter the image into the file chosen field.

    Once the image name has appeared in the file chosen field, click the "Upload File(s)" button. It may take a handful of seconds depending on what you're using to post, but the image will then be inserted into your post as an attachment. Then you can add any additional text you would like to your post and submit your post as usual. The image will appear within the body of your post once you have clicked submit.
