I know a little about autism as well and that isn't easy either. Smoothie, what breed of dog do you have?
Good thoughts beaming your way...

I have a black Lab. Labs are notorious for having bad hips/knees. A dog jumped on her at the park one day a while back and it blew out the doggy equivalent of her ACL. The other back knee and her hips are getting arthritic despite her only being 3. I think she is developing a luxating patella, and she sounds like a bowl of rice krispies when she walks from all the popping and cracking noises.
