A decision well made...

Here it is! The confirmation I was looking for. The wee glimpse into fate which allowed me to see that we have made the right decision in selecting an African Boerboel for our son with Autism, and even more so, in choosing THIS PARTICULAR African Boerboel who we had such a rocky time getting from the get-go. Mason really has NO interest in the animals who live in our home. He seemingly didn't even NOTICE Matani when he first arrived. Even now Mason tends to ignore the 50-60 pound rough-housing puppy most of the time. But today was different! I came down the stairs to see this!!!!!!! My son, watching cartoons and ALLOWING Matani to lie with him! Yes! He finally let the dog in, and Matani took full advantage of the opportunity! My heart melted a bit... this is one very good decision made in our quest to help our son.
