It's not something we would we ever think might be a problem. With autism, there's a lot going on, and it's hard to anticipate what's going to happen next, what could be an issue. It's always an adventure, to say the least. Somehow, our goofy, loving pug has taught my family and me so much more about autism, and the patience that comes with it, than we ever could have realized.
Will is severely affected with autism. He's now 14 years old, and he can't talk. His understanding is limited, and he's extremely medically challenged. He's the love of my life, a blessing in our family, and loving him is a constant learning experience. We all know what makes Will different, but you can't really explain that to a dog. Luckily, we never needed to.
