Our 6 year old brain damaged grandson Raffi is here from New Jersey visiting. Murray loves him- follows him around, sits next to him, kisses him- and Raffi loves Murray. In fact, he can say two words: "Dad" and "Murr", for Murray!

Now, with something called "Able Net", he can say more! Able Net is a 6 inch large red plastic button which allows phrases to be recorded. It allows Raffi to communicate by pushing the button- the recorded phrase plays, and Raffi, who can't form words, can communicate on a basic level.

We recorded "Hello Murray", and for the past 2 days Raffi has been in heaven pushing that button- Murray wags his tail and kisses him, and we have been hearing alot of "Hello Murray-Hello Murray- Hello Murray" ---
Too bad we don't live closer so that they can be together more-

Modern technology is wonderful! How great for your grandson. :)
I have a severely brain damaged brother. wish this kind of stuff was around when he was young. Mind you, he's terribly afraid of all animals, which makes me sad, as they are such good therapy for them.
