I happily provided a Forever-Home to one of your puppies several years ago, and she was the love of our lives!  Born from Bluebell & Braveheart, we named her Mackenzie aka "Kenzie Girl". My daughter was born when she was about 2, and they quickly became inseparable. What people may not know, is that my daughter has Autism. But without any special training, Kenzie-Girl gave her tremendous support!

Sadly, our beautiful Golden became quite ill this past winter, and I made the heart-wrenching decision to put her down. It was the hardest thing I've ever had to do, but I knew deep down I couldn't bear to watch her suffer.  We miss her terribly and our house seems so empty without her. 

Some of my daughter's symptoms include: irrational fears and high anxiety.  I would be interested in learning about specially-trained & certified dogs, that might be able to accompany her to places as such as school, to help ease that anxiety.  I was wondering what kind of information you could provide about applying for an Autism Dog? **

I think about you and Jim often, as you both made quite an impression on me and I have nothing but good things to say about you and your business when I hear of friends looking to get a dog.  I would love to bring my daughter by for a visit if possible, maybe she could meet some "relatives" of Mackenzie?  Take Care, Tracy Bochenek. 

PS Here are a few pics of my 2 baby girls...

(**Editor's note: Parents & Guardians of children aged 3-to-18 may apply for an Autism Assistance Dog, through The Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guide Program.  We have provided Tracy with their contact information, and wish her & her family the very best in their search for a "Perfect Match!")
