All about Aramil
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

Aramil was adopted from Doc Williams SPCA in Goose Creek, SC (http://www.dwspca.com). He and his littermates were found abandoned on the side of a road here in town. He was rescued by the SPCA, and had been in their care since January 13. We adopted him on February 20. He is so warm and loving. Having a puppy around has definantly brought my husband and I closer together.
Aramil is a bouncing little ball of fur. He has a mighty bark and will charge dogs bigger than he is right now, and tries to eat "chew toy dogs"--chihuahuas and the like. He loves to sleep at the foot of my bed, and has a favorite blanket he drags with him all over our house. When I put his towel and toys in his crate, he will go in there and pull everything out, one thing at a time. It's a little strange to find a Kong in the bathroom and a tennis ball behind the stove! He really likes carrots, but only if they're fresh, cool and crisp. He does not like apples, they're not too friendly with puppy! He is so spoiled-his mommy and daddy treat him like a doggy king.
Aramil is about to take his first trip to the beach, as soon as it's warm enough. And, when his daddy has leave (daddy is in the Navy), he'll be meeting the mouse...Mickey Mouse in Disney World, that is!
