how to wake a deaf dog

Oh dear. The tiny travel camera has a movie feature. Here's my sweet puppy on her napping pillow. I may be out of control.

How to wake up a deaf dog? You stick your face in hers, and give here little tickle around her chops with your finger, and, if you are lucky, she will wake up and give you a smooch.

Sweet, sweet, sweet. Your puppy looked like she was saying "What's our next adventure?"

First I watched without sound because my camera doesn't have sound on its video. Then I just watched again and turned up the sound. You have a lovely voice. If only my mom would have used a voice like yours to wake me up...

What a sweet little girl! It was apparent her brother was trying to help you wake her. Now I wonder if my cheap digital camera can do the same thing....

I discovered that my little buddy Reesie - I posted some pics of him on my blog today - was deaf last year when I had to put his sister to sleep. Suddenly I realized he wasn't responding to being called - not even for diner. Vet did some tests and he's almost totally deaf - seems for several years he had been taking all his signals from her. So he lost his sister and his hearing-ear dog.

I always feel bad about waking him - he always seems so startled and confused. Mind you that could also have something to do with being 13 years old.

And ain't Betty just a cutie. Being deaf obviously doesn't affect her joy in life. But that may have a great deal to do with someone who loves her?

Okay, I laughed! What a sweet dog, but then I'm a sucker for dogs anyway. One of the dogs in the neighborhood, Mugsy, who's a bulldog goes nuts when he sees me coming, cause he knows he can slobber all over me and cash in on lots of chin scratches.

definitely have to have the sound up on this one. it's kind of freaky that we can stand over her and yell and there's no response. we've had her 5-6 months and i'm still not wholly accustomed to it.

i wake her up with a little puff of air on her face ~ can't see that in the video. if you touch her, she startles, but a slight breeze on her precious, angelic, angel puppy face just wakes her up naturally. and then she smiles :)

willym, that's sad that Reesie lost his companion. betty takes a lot of cues from bill, too. i think the mailman would pass by unscathed if not for bill. i don't know what she'd do without him.

is this like having kids? this doggy love?

Yup. Just like having kids. When you find yourself videotaping them sleep and think it is cute to watch them wake up, you got yourself a kid! I agree with Kathryn that you have a lovely voice.

How fun to see your pooches and hear your voice. It just makes the blogging thing feel even more personal. Thanks for posting this. Do I see vid-casts in your future?

Betty is wonderful and sweet. Who is your other dog? I loved hearing your voice. I hope you are well. Take care, Trixie.

Hee heee! Reminds me of my deaf cat, who is also white. Poor thing thinks she's being snuck up on half the time, just because she doesn't hear anyone coming...

I have to agree with the others - you have a wonderful voice. :o)

BTW, did you get my email asking you about Florida a little while ago?

I LOVE this video. It reminds me of my own sweet deaf Jack Russell, Sadie who passed away 2 years ago in January.

The upside to her being hard of hearing was that she never barked at the doorbell, just kept on sleeping. As my father said at the time "nothing beats a deaf dog."
