Autumn comes early this year… A Lethal White rescue puppy :)

Being the proud and loving owner of a lethal white rescue myself (picture left), this video is even more special to me.  If you are not familiar with the term “lethal white,” they are dogs born from a merle-to-merle breeding which are typically deaf and/or blind.  Commonly found in Australian Shepherds.  For more specific details, pictures, and wonderful stories, please visit Amazing Aussies website.

I would like to emphasize… my Lethal White is the BEST thing that has ever happened to me.  It was actually very easy teaching him hand signals and touch commands.  Much easier than I ever imagined.  In fact, easier than training my Huskies I used to have… (I am sure a Husky owner knows exactly what I’m talking about here…)

So, please watch, enjoy, and consider adopting a lethal white.  You will not regret it.

 

 

 

It’s a dogs day at work…

Hi!  Here is a video I compiled of the day I took my two white Aussies into work.  This is a mother/son duo, and the son is called a “lethal white” Aussie.  He was born completely deaf and blind in his left eye.  I have trained him with touch signal and hand commands.  You will see some used in this video.  For more details, please see my posting About Me & My Dogs.

My two beautiful children.  Rescued together from a shelter (see “About Me & My Dogs” in the top menu).  He was about 3-4 months old, her age unsure – estimating around 4 yrs old at the time of adoption in 2007.

I, very affectionately, call the son “Dork”… because he’s a dork.  Very happy-go-lucky.  Born completely deaf, and blind in his left eye, he will occasionally run into something, then give it a look as in “whatever” and go on his merry way.
