What kinds of different things is she interested in?

I saw in another thread that you were looking for advice on how to train Lotta. Is it hard for your friend to interact with new people in a group setting? I don't have Asperger's but I do have a little bit of social anxiety which makes it hard for me to be in a group setting sometimes. Would your friend let you take her dog to classes and have video taken? Maybe when the class is over you can show her what you've learned and she can practice.
My friend has taken Lotta to courses by herself and SHE is going to take Lotta to them again as soon as she can.

I love horses too, I work as a groom and pony person for race horses and have a horse myself. I love it because I really don't have to deal with people a lot (I have anxiety and ADHD so dealing with people is tough) and the people I do deal with are kind of misfits like me so it's cool lol.

Others that have Aspergers have different kind of difficulties. My friend has difficulties with communication. In the previous messages we told that:

/....It's hard to explain why, but when she ask someone to write somewhere for her (it's not only about forums), the message cannot be written in first person - the message must be written in passive or in the third person instead.
and that:

The only difference than if my friend could write the messages herself is that they are written in passive or in the third person.
We tried to ask in another thread about this: one of you had suggested that I would refer to my friend by some name. Maybe it could be used as a compromise. What are your opinions about it? Would it be better idea than to write my friend? My friend is still interested to know what do you think about that.

I think what people are saying is that since your posts are written in passive or third person (I know your friend wishes for them to be written that way) it makes them kind of hard to comprehend.

The reason messages cannot be written differently relates somehow to my friend's disability. It's difficult to explain how.

It should not affect so much who writes the messages. We have told more about it earlier.

My friend is still interested to know if it is a good idea what was suggested.

Yes I think it would be a good idea to pick a name that she would like to be called, it might make it easier go give advice.
