After much thinking and talking (and compromising (like who will be in charge of poo duty (that would be me!))), we have decided to pursue getting a service dog for Christian!  We have to lay our egos aside, step out in faith, and just DO this.  Having a service dog would be a HUGE benefit for Christian, but also be a big help for the rest of us as well.

But, first thing first — finishing the application.  I’m hoping to get it in the mail by the end of next week.  Then we need to be approved by the service dog organization’s board of directors.  If that all happens, we will be fundraising like crazy.  I’m new to fundraising, but I really believe that it can and will be done.  We have lots of people willing to help already and the paperwork is still swirling around on our computer.  😉 

I can just picture Christian with a service dog and just bonding.  That in and of itself would be a most amazing thing!  🙂
