Chris and I don't take adopting another dog decision lightly because we don't just get a puppy. We adopt a deaf puppy and and all the issues that can come from an older untrained deaf puppy. We have committed to take our new deaf puppy Bud through at least 6 months of training all the way through the AKC Canine Good Citizen training and testing. We encourage all of our Deaf Dogs Rock followers to go that extra mile when it comes to training their deaf dogs. It is one of the sure ways to beat stereo-types and misconceptions when it comes to deaf dogs.
I really feel like I just finished with all of Nitro's training (16 months straight of training Nitro) and now I am starting all over again with a new deaf puppy. I have to wonder if I am totally out of my mind crazy. Yes I must be crazy in love! Well please help me welcome Bud to our family here on the farm. Here are some photos of Bud and Nitro over the past week.
The dogs of Bluebird Farm.
I love how Bud sticks his head under water!
Bud has some breathing issues so you will notice in many of these photos his little tongue sticks out. He reminds me of Goamer Pile!
This night was a huge breakthrough because our Shepherd mix Bailey never lets the other dogs sleep near her but look at her letting Bud use her as a pillow. We were pleasantly surprised at this photo opportunity.
Here I just had some fun playing with some of my editing tools.
Doesn't this look like a pink waterfall?
