She doesn't eat it or anything but she will somewho throw it into the air and the chase it. Baby is getting older and has been spayed about six months ago. She is such a clown and very lovable towards me and very protecive. We are consant compainions. I have to tell people that she is deaf as she doesn't show it. She acts as any normal dog. I could have sold her a hundred time over and been rich for the deal but as I could never sell a child of mine so goes my Baby.

Deaf dog: Silence is a 13 month old Dalmatian. His family says "During my study to become a dog psychiatrist I read a book by Barry Eaton 'A Guide to Training A Deaf Puppy,' because I wanted to be able to handle these dogs as well and give support to their owners. When I finished it I knew a deaf dog wouldn't cause problems when starting training with him when he is a puppy. I didn't want to get a dog at that time, but I came onto a webpage for Dalmatian rescue and I have seen "Silence" in the web. Deafness was the reason for the breeder to give him away...the breeder at least gave this dog a chance before killing him as usually done with deaf dogs. I couldn't say NO to these eyes and I and my family decided to take him before I graduated...although my intellect said not to! But we have never regretted that decision not at one day ever since!
Silence was easy to educate, not worse or better than a hearing dog....actually he "hears" better than some of the hearing ones. I swear. Silence is used to walk off leash. On small streets too. Just on main streets I put him on. He moves his head through the collar of the retriever-leash as a volunteer. He got no problems being with a leash for a short while...he can run outside, play with other dogs or with me. We made him love to play with us and this is the best trick for getting his attention. When he thinks he can walk where he wants to, we run away...he is so in panic when he doesn't see his family. Therefor he gives attention to check where we could never know! Even if we touch him from behind he just looks around to see who it is. We only showed him who the boss is in his language....and we taught him with love and with patience. He is really a gift from God! A gift like any loving animal who lives with us and all the ones living all over the world."
You can see Silence on his webpage Then go onto the button "Me & friends". It is telling a lot about the things between dogowner and his dog from Silence's point of view. It's really funny but still gives basic information - a little different then others.
Human companions: Michaela Gutekunst and family of 4
Other pets: 2 cats, 2 canaries
