|| Christian & William, November 2011 Get-A-Wag
Christian was nominated for November's Get-A-Wag by his aunt Wendy
Christian is 11 years old, living in Virginia with his grandparents. His aunt is Wendy and she nominated him to receive a free therapy puppy from Queen Elizabeth Pocket Beagles.
Thank-you so much for selecting Christian for one of your puppies. It really means the world to me and our family. I will have some better pictures for you ...
the group picture on my porch is of myself (his aunt), my children (Katie & Blake), my Mother (Geni, who has custody of and is raising Christian)
and the really cute little guy in the front is Christian, the horseback riding picture, he is the child on the white with spots pony,
and the picture is of him with my son and Honey the Alpaca.
Prince William arrival date is November 15, 2011
Read the Letters from Christian and see their pictures together
"Christian is my 11 year old nephew, who has autism, although he is high functioning, it is still a daily struggle and emotional challenge and he has difficulty making friends. Also his father, my younger brother passed away in 2006, so Christian is now being raised by his grandparents.
Last summer Christian came to Tennessee to visit me on my farm and fell in love with my dogs, it was amazing to see the bond they made in the short amount of time they were together and the joy that their unconditional love and acceptance brought him. After spending time with me at my farm and with my dogs all he has talked about is wanting one of his own and that is what he has even asked for for Christmas and in researching what type of dog would be good for him I came across your web site.
I think Christian would greatly benefit from the bond a boy and a dog share. Being that his grand parents are retired and on a fixed income as well as his grandfather is disabled with COPD, it would be difficult for them to afford the purchase of a puppy, however the vet care would not be a burden."
