Soul Friends therapy dogs love their work. Attached see a story on them at work with students at a school in CT. During this session the most amazing thing happened with one boy living with autism spectrum who had participated in our program four months earlier. He walked in for a special hello and his first words were “there’s Muffin, look she got a haircut!”. Not only did the boy remember Muffin’s name but noticed and attended to the change in her appearance. As a clinical social worker,for over 20 years it was one of my most rewarding moments of my career.
