Meet Fiona Apple! She was saved by our Advocacy group Deaf Dogs Rock last week and this week she is spending some time here at the farm because her new foster family is right up the road. She is a Deaf 10-14 month old dalmatian/pointer mix. Here are a few shots of her before her Intake at Angles of Assisi Rescue in Roanoke, VA. She has a lot of puppy energy and she loves to run. She will need a home with someone willing to continue her training, have a secure fenced yard, love her and keep her safe at all times. If you are interested in adopting Fiona you can go to Angles of Assisi's website and fill out an adoption application.
Doesn't Fiona have AWESOME ears?
My husband Chris drove to Raleigh to meet her transport to get her to safety.
She truly is just the sweetest deafie ever!
She loves playing with my deaf boxer Bud!

This is Fiona's foster mom Kim who also has a deaf Chi mix dog at home.

According to my dog Lexi, Fall totally ROCKS!
Tallulah loves her front field and she loves to run loose. Such a good dog!

Can't forget this fall photo of my horse Montana. The sun was setting and the lighting was perfect!
Our friend Sharon stopped in with her husband Ben and their wonderful dog Oliver. Bud, Nitro and Oliver had a ball playing and chasing each other.

Fun photo shoot with the Custer Family and their dogs.
This was the first time their big Great Dane had ever seen a horse!
Deaf Rescue Dog Ali'itoa
I have been working with a deaf rescue dog down at Angels of Assisi Rescue named Ali'itoa. I taught him how to loose leash walk, sit and wait. The wait sign is very important to teach a deaf dog because it teaches them when the see the "wait" sign to freeze. This command keeps them from rushing out the door or into traffic. It also keeps them from moving when I am trying to get a good head shot. This is only his third day knowing the "wait" sign and he was so awesome!
My handsome deaf dog Bud!
More photos of Ali'itoa
Nitro downtown sporting his Ella's collar and lead!
Handsome Bud. He has really filled out. The first six month here on the farm he was very skinny and he was a very picky eater. Now we crock pot chicken and veggies for our dogs and they have all filled out nicely.
On to the cold weather. I hope you enjoy our fall photos!

I saw a cool product on the Ellen Show called the Shutter Hugger so I ordered one to try it out on my camera while photographing my dogs. I highly recommend this product because as you can see from the photos below it totally captured (my hard to capture) my dog's attention. These cool little camera creatures only cost between 15.99 and 19.99!
I could tell both my little dog Tallulah and my white boxer Bud would love to eat my bunny Shutter Hugger so it is very important for me to take it off the camera lens and put it away that is if I ever want the bunny around to shoot photos on another day.
Usually I can never get Bud to look directly at the camera!
Such a happy little girl Miss Tallulah is in this photo!
Such a pretty girl. Lexi is now 13 years old!
According to my dog Lexi, the Shutter Hugger TOTALLY ROCKS! If you would like to try out a Shutter Hugger you can order one by clicking here.
Happy Blogging! ~ Christina, Lexi, Tallulah, Nitro, Bailey and Bud
