This is Mead, a BCR dog I have had since she
was 5 months old.
She is a super dog, and a great companion.
We do all sorts together, agility, tracking, long walks and playing ball, her absolute favourite.
She is quite a character, and likes to keep all other dogs in order - no dogs must play together when she is around!
She is six years old now, time does fly. She came to us when we'd lost our previous collie, Kess, who was much loved, and much missed.
Dillon, both collie crosses were fantastic dogs too.
I celebrate them all.
We got our border collie when he was a puppy.
I knew something
was wrong when he never seemed to learn his name.
I grew more and more suspicious that he might be deaf.
We've now had him for 7 years and I love having a deaf dog. I
hate it when people say "Oh poor dog!" about him being deaf.
I tell them "He doesn't know he's deaf, as far as he's concerned he's perfectly fine!"
The only real difference is they stay sleeping when you go out into the kitchen (hearing dogs would be right out there with you hoping for food) and also when they are off the leash they tend to keep an eye on you more than a regular dog.
I would have another deaf dog and I would highly recommend getting one for your family.
