How is your son with animals, how does the autism effect the way he interacts with animals if at all?

I think hubby wants a huge one. We already have a Bloodhound and a St. Bernard, it would fit right in, in his mind.

LOL I'm talking huge where you have to have a special reinforced ramps for the piggy to get in the house, you have to reinforce your couch, chairs and anything the piggy will use. How would I know this you might ask, I saw it on Animal Planet of course.

You newbies and soon to be Delawareans are too much! Hubby and I were talking last night about goats, pot bellied pigs, rabbits, etc! We have our hopes up about a house with acreage, so if that all comes together, everyone can come visit Mary's Zoo!

Delly, we were lucky, the dogs never climbed on the houses in the goat pen, but then again, neither did the goats. Good thing, as our retreivers were beautiful but not the smartest dogs in town! Especially the male... but I won't go there! I'll have to dig out pictures from those days.. I'm sure they are in a box out in the garage! May not have any pics with dogs and goats together, but I do have some of the baby goat hubby (my city boy!) delivered (yep, birthed) for the neighbors. Now THAT was a story and a half!

Laural, our son with autism is a bit skittish with animals, but he's coming around. May have something to do with mom pushin' him into experiences that help expose him to all sorts of things. We purposely reach out at petting zoos, and I can't wait to visit all the 4-H pens at the DE State Fair! Good thing mom (me) has some farmer blood... the only critters I have issues with are the cold blooded, or slimey, slithery ones! But then again, our youngest is a reptile fan, so even that area is covered!

E-mail me when you get a chance... we still need to get together! Hopefully before school is out... otherwise, my boys will be in tow!

Mary

Cancan I love your pics! Your furkids are adorable, keep them coming.

The way we post our picks so they are clickable is when your posting look above the window where you post and you will see a paperclip, click on that it will be just like adding attachments to an email. So you click on browse find where your picture is located, click upload, close out that window and your done.

These are my Samoyeds. The big one in the in front had a stoke in Oct and is no longer with us. We only have the little one now. They are both from the same litter and were nothing alike. Samoyeds are very gentle and loving.

Oh Carole.......they are beautiful.

All your dogs are great. I love dogs but have no fence in yard and I'm not willing to walk them a couple times a day.
