Default Poor Mary

i thought she was just getting stubborn. Taking advantage of the fact she was old and trying to get away with things she didn't use to do. Today at the clay guild i got up to get the towels to fold and she was asleep. I guess while i was in the back she thought i went out the front door and was sitting there in front of it waiting for me. I called her name. Her head never moved. I clapped my hands several times, and still not a muscle twitched. So now i feel awful. I have been scolding her and she can't hear me . Now i will have to watch her three times as close outside for she won't be able to hear cars either.

That's truly a bummer. You should try stomping the ground, she may be able to feel the vibrations. Hope you guys will work something out.

Aw, I'm so sorry, Smkie. Don't beat yourself up, you didn't know. It's so sad to see our dogs get old, their lives are too darn short.

she seems to hear ok if you are close up..will have to monitor. DOn't know how else to check hearing for a dog! I know in the nursing home that if people raised their voices it seemed to make things even worse.a distortion of sorts...much better to speak in the same tone but move much closer.

yup.... Mary is the last tie to the kennels for me. WE have been through it all together and i find myself getting short with her and then getting short with myself for being cross..all this time i thought she was being a contrary mary...sigh I took her today even though she didn't mind me so well last time because she gave me those old woman eyes. The ones that deal guilt by the bucket load.
