We came in from Cole's run and his feet were filthy. I thought is was soo funny and had to take a picture of him immediately laying down in the tub to be cleaned. He's such a character sometimes. Free Image Hosting at

Deaf Bostie info?

Today in my local dollar store, the woman at the checkout was talking about her deaf Boston pup, female, obtained at the age of 6 weeks(!!!).  She was getting frustrated at the lack of trainability - she didn't know it was deaf when it was given to her by her daughter.  Another lady, who deals with dalmations, gave her a web address with deaf-pup info, and I was giving general training advice along with.

Mygod, I feel so sorry for the pup.  I don't think this woman has the time or patience to deal with this situation, and I want the dog to have every positive input an opportunity available.  I can't take this responsibility on -  I live alone, and have gone back to school full-time for a med-lab tech degree (= hours of grueling schoolwork/studying).  My guys are in their 10's, and we get along well. I guess what I am looking for is more info to pass onto this lady before said pup winds up at the pound, and my guilt goes into overdrive. 

I live in a really small, rural town without a lot of resources.   Since this woman is a checkout person at the dollar store, I'm guessing her resources are limited also. 

What can I offer her?  Thanks in advance, to all you Boston lovers.
