All about Vinnie
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

What I miss,
His little whiskers, and how they woke me in the morning,
soft little hands, that held his treats,
a pink tongue, that was always ready to give love,
two round ears, the way they perked when I walked by,
his mouth, for when he would drag his blanket around,
and that tail! How it curled on my finger!
But what I miss most is his heart,
and just how much he used it....
You were my pet, my friend, but above all, you were my baby.
