Meet Our own deaf
and I are so happy. We are approaching on one full week together and he
is settling in well. It is amazing how much we have bonded in such a
short period of time, and couldn't imagine my life without him now. He
is such a lover! He follows me from room to room and makes sure to that
he has a part in everything I'm doing... which is alright by me. Better
he like me and be in everything than unhappy.
I have adjusted well to sharing my bed (it's called the little tiny
corner in the top right that he never seems to gravitate to!) We will
see how well him and my fiance adjust to sharing the rest of the bed
next time he is in town! haha. Not to mention sharing everything else.
Who knew you never needed a dishwasher... just a dog big enough to get
his head in the sink and lick your plates clean for you.
Even my 8 month old kitty is getting used to having the big lug trample
her. She is still a bit hesitant (not that I can blame her) but she is
so curious to see what kind of creature he is she can't contain
herself. They even tried playing this morning... better luck next time.
I can't express how happy I am to be part of such an amazing group.
Give me a few more months and a bigger house and I will very well be a

is deaf and blind. The folks that surrendered him to us weren't
prepared for raising a deaf and blind Dane, and felt it would be best
for him if they surrendered him to us. Little
Stevie may be deaf and blind, but someone forgot to tell him that.
Stevie is outgoing, inquisitive, and lives life at full throttle. He is
also pretty much fearless (though sometimes around strangers, sudden
contact with his face can startle him). He is loving, smart (has
already learned the sit and down commands), and totally into people. He
does tend to have issues being locked away from you, but given how he
has been bounced around and his being blind and deaf, this is not all
that surprising. If left loose in the house, he is just fine, and he is
not destructive or anything. He is housebroken and has not had any
potty accidents. He plays well with other dogs, and is amazingly well
adapted. He is the least handicapped dog you will ever meet. He will
make someone very happy, he has a ton of love to give and can do
anything a seeing/hearing dog can do. He is an amazing dog. His sense of smell is uncanny, and there is no way to hide from him as you can see in the video below.
We will post additional photos of Stevie as time goes by, so check
