Raymond’s Dog 3: Meet Blue! Monday, Aug 8 2011 

Raymond’s dog is named Blue! We are in touch with his current puppy raiser and will be meeting him soon. Raymond was excited by the picture but nowhere near as excited as he will be by the visit. At the moment, we plan to schedule 1-2 visits in the next couple months. Then, after he is neutered in October, Blue will come to live with us! For us that means the work will just be beginning, as we will have 2 hours a week of training, but that sort of work is exciting to do!


Raymond’s dog 2: Why an autism service dog? Friday, Mar 4 2011 

We decided late 2010 to seek a service dog to help Raymond cope with autism. Many people asked “Why a service dog for autism? Doesn’t that have to do with learning? How can a dog help that?” Hopefully, this will answer some questions about both the reason and the process of acquiring an autism service dog.

Editorial note: We have raised the money for Raymond’s dog, but I still encourage folks to donate to North Star Dogs. Its a great cause.
