I did have a couple of dogs that I could never get attached to. I had others that I adored almost as much as my human loved ones. I always found the other dogs good homes. I don't know if this is an NT/Aspie thing though. I think, just like with human:human relationships, there are some personality combinations that just don't mesh.

Did you make her costume? Your Halloween costumes are amazing!

It's a quote from a former boss. I was a report developer at the time and when I was telling her about our situation, I mentioned that we developed about 75% ad hoc reports. She immediately retorted "Ad hoc is a dirty word!" and it stuck ever since. I had the opportunity to talk to her a few years later and she laughed when she realized that became my e-mail - she still remembered saying it.
Ad hoc is a Latin phrase. It generally signifies a solution designed for a specific problem or task, non-generalizable, and which cannot be adapted to other purposes.
Common examples are organizations, committees, and commissions created at the national or international level for a specific task. In other fields the term may refer, for example, to a military unit created under special circumstances, tailor-made suit, a handcrafted network protocol, or a purpose-specific equation. Ad hoc can also have connotations of a makeshift solution, inadequate planning, or improvised events.
