 This is the dog that is changing my life.  This is my son's new autism service dog from 4 Paws for Ability.  We are very excited about how the dog will help him.  If you check out their page you can read about the many other kinds of service dogs that they train at 4 Paws. 

My family enjoys finding ways to help others around Christmas.  One way you can do that is by helping fund a child's dog.  If you click here you will find a list of children who are fundraising for a service dog.  Maybe you can make his/her Christmas this year. 

We are wrapping up 2013 around here.  I am saying things like "Where is that book?" What do you mean you have not done that cleaning job for 3 weeks?"  "We need to work on this more!"   So as we wrap up I am going to pause on blogging until January.  

Don't forget I will hold my annual Narrative Give-away contest at the beginning of January.  Sign up for emails so you will know the details.  I will also be updating my forms over my break for the 2013-2014 school year. 

Thanks for reading in 2013! 


  1. Love this! I'm not very familiar with autism's challenges. But I know how valuable a dog is in a child's life. We have two labs of our own that I'd be lost without.
    Definitely going to check out their site!

  2. Thanks for writing Kelsey! How wonderful you have two labs.
    4 PAWS is an amazing organization. They also need people to foster dogs, volunteer etc.
    Enjoy the day!
