On Being Deaf

I rescued ANgel when she was 12 weeks old, knowing she was deaf. We are coming up on her 10th birthday, and this little 5- lb. dog has accomplished so much. She is my soul. Here she is pictured with her with dear friends, Emmylou Harris and the Judd impersonators. Each April, Metro Animal Control puts on their "Tour for Life"; this year will be our tenth year. We spend the summer months promoting deaf dogs. ANgel is also a therapy and service dog and has recently started writing her own column in the local newspaper. She has been on the front page of the local newspaper twice, and yes, her name is spelled "ANgel". It means "an angel". You can visit ANgel's blog to see her friends: http://www.dogster.com/dogs/540464.
