Well, I Guess I Have a Dog
Several months ago, we had some neighbors move in next door. The family consisted of a husband, a wife, a handful of kids, and two shih tzu dogs. After about a month, the dogs felt comfortable enough to come over and spend most of their day at our house. My kids loved it and my wife and I noticed that the dogs did a good job of calming our autistic son down when he started to get angry. From that point on, we talked off and on about getting a dog, specifically for him. We would check around now and then, but could never find a dog that fit what we were looking for. That all changed in the fall of 2021.
