This piece was created for the BMDCA Health Fund Auction 2008
Everything my son, Rikki does is great. It's amazing because he was born very ill and spent the first 3 years of his life trying to die. He got through it though and at the age of 3 was diagnosed with full blown tourette's syndrome and autism. He did not speak, or communicate at all. He was also allergic to everything and had celiacs disease. It was awful. I took him to every doctor in the state and even started going to Canada until one day I remembered a doctor I had when I was a kid in CT who was doing homeopathy. I took Rikki to him and in just a few months we had a different kid. Since then we have had a 90% cure, no more tics, he is a counselor in Boy Scouts and everything he does is excellent. He just has all kinds of talent; music, working with animals, he is graduating from High School in 2 months and he is ONLY 15!! I guess he is making up for lost time.
Rikki does all of his burnings on a little card table he found at the dump, he is pretty proud of that table, and puts on his favorite country music station and just goes to work with his $19.99 wood burning kit he bought at our local Wal-Mart. His German Shepherd Dog of course helps him by being there also and offering support with a well deserved kiss from time to time. She adores him.
So thats the short of it and HE LOVES BERNESE MOUNTAIN DOGS and GERMAN SHEPHERD DOGS too.
