This boy is 8 years old today! He’s still a clown
He’s decided to be Little Red Riding Hood for Halloween.
Astro loves wearing hats or anything on his head. He’ll get under the kitchen table and peek under the tablecloth until I notice him or nose his way under a towel to slip it on. What a poser!
Happy Birthday Mr Big Job!!

Deaf Dog Awareness Week is nothing special to us. We celebrate it daily!
We’ve come so far since this post from 2015.
Best news of all is the DCA has changed their position statement and no longer push for euthanizing deaf Dalmatians. These spotted deafies can also participate in AKC’s sports and obedience!
Many thanks to all the Deaf Dalmatian rescues throughout the USA that help breeders find loving homes for these special dogs.

As Deaf Dog Awareness Week continues, we could post cute, funny posts, or we can use it to educate. We choose to educate.

Before there ever was a TN Safety Spotters, Momma Spotter tried for years to change the minds of Dalmatian breeders in their decision to follow AKC's DCA's position on deafness ( euthanize) She believes that to kill a healthy puppy just b/c it is deaf is barbaric and inhumane.
Getting nowhere, she decided to start a non-profit and set an example of what deaf Dalmatians can accomplish IF given a chance. That's when TN Safety Spotters was started.
We're glad many Dalmatian breeders have decided to adopt their deaf pups out to good homes, or let a trustworthy rescue group find them homes.
One day, hopefully soon, DCA's present position statement will no longer exist.
This post is for the 1000's of healthy deaf pups who are up in heaven. The Spotters will continue to work hard in your memory.

Stay safe!

Before heading to the beach or the lake, check the weather and water conditions. Open water is less predictable than the pool and brings different risks. Learn tips for swimming in open water:

Thanks everyone for your support! We can’t reach out in our community w/o it!!

The Spotters are groomed and ready for today’s visit with MPD Officer Jefferson and the kids from this special summer camp.
All 4 Spotters are going. I want to make a huge impression and share with the kids their story.
When we started this program years ago, Ed Horrell from the Kindness Revolution spoke to them first about his special friends that got bullied daily. Then we entered and what an amazing presentation. We have continued this super special program.
Trish is helping me this morning. She’s known the Spotters for years and can easily sign to them.
Deaf Spots Rock!

Dogs and Children: How to Keep Them Both Safe - Whole Dog Journal

This is also true for therapy dogs.

Dogs and Children: How to Keep Them Both Safe - Whole Dog Journal There are many things we can do to improve the odds for safe child-dog interactions, beginning with the dog herself. Ideally, every dog should be well socialized with babies and children from puppyhood. Many young adults adopt a pup at a time when children are, if anything, a distant prospect, witho...

Hey! Spotters here. PLEASE keep your dogs safe this July 4th. Since we're Deaf, fireworks don't scare us but we are the exception!
Use common sense! Scared dogs can jump tall fences like you wouldn't believe! Now is a perfect time too for making sure your pet is properly ID'd.
