My Dorky Dog
This is my dorky dog that I call “Dork.” Imagine that. He’s a dork. When I go to bed, or am lying down watching TV in my bedroom, Dork likes to sit in front of the mirror and watch me via the reflection. It’s actually rather amazing because he is what’s called a “. Born completely deaf and blind in one eye. His distant vision is not that great. Hmmm… Now that I think about it, I wonder if it is clearer because the image of me is actually only a foot away when looking at my reflection. Whereas if looking directly at me, I’m about 5 or 6 feet away. Thoughts? ” Aussie
It’s funny, too, because he really is watching me. Since he’s deaf, I have trained him with hand signals and touch commands both. His “come” command obviously had to be a hand signal since he’s at a distance. So when I give him his signal to come via the reflection in the mirror, his head perks up, he then looks directly at me, and hops up on the bed. He’s such a good boy.
Sorry, the image is not that great. I took it with my phone and had to use a flash. Room was too dark.
