new here with SDit for my son

Hello everyone! I already posted in the welcome forum, but figured I'd introduce myself here too! lol
My name is Lisa and I love GSDs! I had them growing up and now have one for my son. My son is 6 and has autism, epilepsy, tourette syndrome, mild cerebral palsy, and some other medical issues. We purchased a dog through an agency where you get the dog at 8 weeks, and go through an intensive training once a week and carry out the training at home. This dog is absolutely amazing! At 8 weeks old, and after only being with us for 3 days, she alerted to a seizure that I didn't even know my son was having! She is 8 months old now and has alerted/responded to 15+ seizures and tracked/found my son 3 times when he took off. She is far from being fully trained, but the work she has already done has solidified my decision to get her.
The bond was formed instantly and my son absolutely adores her- calls himself 'daddy'. lol I look forward to meeting many of you, learning from you, sharing stories and getting advice.

Alot of members use photobucket, I use picasa photo editor, or, (i've never done it this way) you can do it using your paint program. Here's instructions. How to Resize a Picture With a Paint Program | eHow.com)
