All about Jelly and Lola
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

Jelly Bean (aka Jelly) and Lola (aka Freaky-Friday) are sisters but you wouldn't know it to look at them. They are from an athletic breed of Jack Russell that is a little larger than even the standard.
Jelly is a soft hearted, shy girl and Lola is the independent. Both should have music playing when move about the room in a Toot-toot-toot fashion.
Jelly preferws to lounge and soak up any love that may come her way, while Lola usually only lasts a few minutes before she has to be off exploring the world around her.
Jelly and Lola succeeded Mabelline and Charlotte. They certainly have added a great deal of joy to our family!
