When Jamie and Nuala Gardner chose a puppy for their son Dale, they weren't an ordinary family choosing an ordinary pet. Dale's autism meant that deviations from his routine could provoke a terrifying tantrum. Family life was almost destroyed by his condition: most of his parents' lives involved attempting to break into their son's autistic world and give him the help he so desperately needed. But after years of effort and slow progress, the Gardners' lives were transformed when Henry, a golden retriever puppy, became a member of the family. The bond between Dale and his dog helped Dale's parents produce the near miraculous breakthrough in their son they had long sought and set him on the road to leading a full and happy life.
