Meet Our own deaf
A new home, a new name (Keller) and life is good!!
Long time no talk..so I thought I'd write with an update on our beautiful critter.
of all--I thought I'd catch you up on family stuff--Scott and I now
have 2 boys of our own--Ethan, who will be 2 in May, and Aram, who was
just born in October. Kell has done AMAZING with them. She happily
allows them to use her as a seat, pet her a little too hard and pull on
her lips. She frequently urges Ethan to chase her around the house, only
to turn around and chase him, nudging him under the armpits until he
giggles so hard he falls over. She is always ready to pick up scraps he
happily shares (or drops on "accident" so she can enjoy his snacks). We
bought a house in Creswell with a great back yard--and are looking to
adopt Scott a dog he can hunt with this spring, so we are preparing to
build a nice covered outdoor area for the two of them to enjoy outside.
(She currently prefers sleeping on the couch or ottoman over being in
the mud. ha ha! But
she is NOT spoiled ;)
If Keller wasn't a huge joy before, I'm
thankful for her presence in the life of our boys. She brings daily
laughter to them and for that we are more than happy.
I attached some pictures so you can see her...lovely, happy life in photos :)
I hope all is going well with you and all of your pups.
Hope to hear from you soon!

|Lambchop (originally Chyna)
just came to us the day after Christmas, from Idaho Great Dane Rescue.
She is under evaluation now and we will update this page as
things develop. We can tell you right now that Lambchop is crate trained
and amazingly well potty trained for her age. When in her crate she
cries to be let out when she needs to go potty. Of course she also
cries at other times too, so sometimes we do have false starts. And if
get to her fairly quickly, she may not be able to hold it, but she is
very well overall. She is not so good if left to wander the house, so
we keep her confined to a single room, or the crate when we can not
watch her closely. She is very affectionate and playful, basically
a typical Dane pup. However IGDR reported she was not so people
oriented with them. Here she has been a doll. I think the big
difference has been the environment. We have 4 deaf pups right now and
she is the largest so she is feeling pretty safe and pleased with
herself here. She seems pretty secure and confident, but as with most
dogs going through the turmoil of a change in placement, she does not
like to be left alone and will raise a ruckus.
Lambchop is a big girl for her age. Not huge as danes go, but much bigger
than most of the pups we see. We have two pups about 6 months old right
now and she is significantly bigger than both of them. She has a lot of
color for a deaf dog, especially around her head and ears. But she is
deaf. She has two different color eyes, her left eye is blue, as many
double merles' are, but her right eye is green, which is unusual. It is
really a modified brown/gold, but it looks green at first. Her eyes are
especially striking because of the dark "mascara" all around each eye.
Why did we change her name to Lambchop?
- Well Chyna just didn't seem to fit (aside from the size thing, she
was in no way reminiscent of the pro wrestler Chyna) and somehow she
reminded my wife and I of Shari Lewis' hand puppet Lambchop. And her
personality is much more a Lambchop type too.
Update 2/12/05 -
Lambchop has really grown up to be a very nice dog. She is affectionate
and trouble free. She gets along with all the other dogs and is as
reliable on her potty training as any dog we've ever had. Her ears are
kind of ratty as they have been torn repeatedly. They seem to be rather
fragile. They've been torn by other dogs and even just by her shaking
her head near something and hitting her ears. She loves to curl up in a
lap or on the couch next to you. She is really a very sweet wonderful
girl. Someone will be very lucky to get her.
