A New Addition
We have been discussing getting a dog for a while but didn't want to just rush out and buy one, never mind that we of course also had to save to pay for it. Christmas & life in general put it off for a while but then we found Flo and we're very happy with our new addition to the family.
She's settling in well and I have arranged her pet insurance so we are covered for all eventualities. I've registered & booked her in with the local vet to be checked over and start her care, vaccinations and the like. The vet offers what they call a puppy club which lasts a year and includes all vaccinations, micro-chipping, flea & worming treatments, as well as discounts on treatment so we will be taking advantage of that and signing her up at her first appointment this week.
stories & articles about dogs being great companions for children with Autism. While Flo is not a trained service dog we hope that she will have a positive impact on L and really become a good friend to him, and will help to help teach him responsibility & to learn to care for someone else. He loves her so much already, all of the children are smitten with her and we are delighted to have her as part of our little family.
