Our dogs may be deaf, but they sure know how to party!  They are just like any other dog; they just can't hear.  They can do anything a hearing dog can do.  One of the deaf dogs is a Therapy Dog, who visits life support patients.  Another is a Master-level Agility athlete.  But all of them are the best friends any person could ever have!
