All about Maggy
Dogs help humans in so many ways. They help with companionship, with tasks that they carry out for us and sometimes they help make every day living much easier. Perhaps the best demonstration of this fact is when dogs help people with disabilities. Many of us have seen dogs helping blind people and many have heard of dogs that feel when a seizure in an epileptic person is about to occur and then protect them from injury. Dogs can also help aid autistic children and parents of autistic children in many ways as well. Recent studies suggest that the prevalence of autistic children in Canada may be 1 in 165 children or higher. Therefore, many people may well personally know of an autistic child in their extended family, or know of friends or acquaintances that have an autistic child. So how can dogs help these autistic children?
The National Service Dogs (NSD) organization in Ontario Canada, is one of the best organizations that specifically help train dogs to make the lives of autistic children better. You might be wondering how a service dog can be useful to autistic children

Maggy is a curious, playful girl that loves to wag her tail and say hello to anyone that will give her pats and loving, especially little kids. We have a 3 year old grandson living in our home and Maggy has a brother, Buddy, a Boxer Lab X. She also shares her home with 4 young kittens rescued from the local SPCA.
Her favorite things; chewing stuffies, eating everything and anything, chasing rabbits, lying on the living room sofa, and sleeping with "Mummy" beside me with her head on the pillow and snoring loudly!
Her pet peeves include being told to "get off the bed" so Daddy can lie down and me catching her sneaking into the kitchen each morning to finish off all the cats' food whether or not they have had enough or not!
