But unlike most of us lazy pups, Clive has been working for 3 of his 4 years. You see, he is a fully trained assistance dog from Irish Guide Dogs who works with a 10 year old boy with autism—his Little Man.
Here they are at an art show together. Clive has very important work to do, but it also means he gets to go to lots of places with his Little Man. Please be sure to visit his blog!
Today is a very important day for Clive and I know he'd appreciate hearing from all of you. First off, he's undergoing surgery to remove some ingrown eyelashes. (Ouch.) Needless to say, this has his Little Man quite distressed about his pal, so please send him some good wishes.
Secondly, today is also World Autism Awareness Day. You can learn more about the rights of people with autism here.
Anyhow, I'm so proud of all of Clive's hard work and efforts to help people understand more about Autism. He really is a very special fellow who makes me proud to be a dog.
I want to be more like Clive - how about you? What special thing are you going to do today to make someone's life happier? Let me know!
