So I moved out of My Mom's house.... again! lol (long story there) but I was living there for almost 2 years. I adopted Scout while I was living there... then when I decided to keep Oliver, I had to move, as he was a little bit bigger than the height restriction for the condo LOL. so now I am all moved and settled.... Ollie is NOT. I left Scout with my mom (we have a shared custody agreement lol) Scout doesn't like Ollie and is a bit stressed when here... so she stays with my Mom. I am sure she would get used to it... but she is sooo happy there, i dont want to disturb her for my own selfish reasons (but boy do I miss her!) Thing is... Ollie does NOT like being an only dog! He walks around crying, he cries at the door, then wanders, then cries at the door. I can distract him with play and training, but when I sit down, he starts wandering again... he is doing it less now that he has a friend that he plays with in the morning and evening, but he still does it. So I was starting to think about adopting another young dog.... just the beginning stages mind you. when a friend of mine in Spokane messaged me about a deaf mini doxie puppy on Craigslist. well long story short, I am getting another deaf dog!!!!! in about a month, I will be driving through the mountains (gotta wait until the snow stops falling in the mountains) to the American border above Spokane, where my friend will be meeting me with my new baby girl! She is 4 months old, white with a dapple ear, and rear and blue eyes... she is deaf because of some idiot person bred 2 dapples, carrying a mutation gene, together that resulted in "lethal white" common in any breed of dog with the merle gene (dapple is a form of merle). lethal whites can be deaf and/or blind, and can also carry other health issues, this one thank goodness is just deaf. So now I will have 2 deaf dogs for my next demo! I am soooo stoked! She will be a great match for Ollie, even tho he is much bigger than she is. she is being fostered right now with 7 danes and plays very well with them.... she has NO FEAR.... cutie!
