They might also be deaf, have a UTI, exhibit separation anxiety and snore like a train.
Introducing: Little Edie Bacon, who was found wandering in Bennington, VT. Shelters, groomers, and vets have been called - no one knows this dog, and no one has come looking. Edie Bacon was not thriving in the shelter, and so we scooped her up and are getting her well. Who knows if we'll keep her or simply foster her until another great home is found, but she is loved, receiving good care, and has a couch to sleep on/stink up.
Working with a hearing impaired dog is a new experience for us. When she wanders off, we can't call her. When she yodels and whines we can't shush her. When we leave a room, she can't hear us, and she worries. Edie B is particularly in love with the Dogtor, and when he's out of sight, her world is destroyed, and she sings what F and I are now calling: The Sad Love Song of Edie B.
