Our journey in raising a puppy for the national service dogs that will eventually help a child with autism.

Farwell my puppy :(
Well it looks as though this will be the end of project puppy raising blog, our year of puppy raising is up and Tandy goes back in two days. All in all the project has accomplished all our goals and much more. The children are no longer afraid of dogs, we all understand animal behaviour better and well we fell in love with a hairy gentle beast named Tandy.
The year has been fun and exciting and at times challenging but i would not change or give it up for a second. We learned the ways of dog behaviour, met a lot of awesome people while out with him and through NSD and had the companionship and love of Tandy through it all. While a year is not long and we have lived all of our lives without the company of a dog it will be a strange and sad adjustment living without a silent and beautiful companion whose only basic requirements from us have been food, love and walks. Which in return have been totally easy to give. So I write this with tears streaming down my face knowing that Tandy will soon be with his forever family who will love and need him far more than we ever will and know that in my heart we as a family have done a great and selfless thing for someone else. ♥ Farewell my puppy!
