Me and my Mom

To hear, or not to hear...

The other day, mom saw me walking in the driveway, not very far from her. "Monty," she called. I didn't even notice her. I kept about my business, sniffing the fauna and flora. "Monty," she called again, at a louder frequency. Nothing. She walked over, a couple feet behind me, and repeated my name, but I continued sniffing the area. She was puzzled by this. She decided to loudly clap her hands, and I promptly turned my head. I was so happy to see her there, I started wagging my tail and walked over to her. She wanted me to come in, so I followed her. She just watched me for a bit, which made me kind of nervous. She is onto me. She has now noticed how I watch her gestures before responding to her. She has figured out why I am acting a bit odd. My check-up at the vet was perfect, but alas, my hearing has begun to fade. Years ago, mom took me to the vet because I was constantly shaking my head. They never found any infections or foreign bodies in my ears, and one vet said maybe I had ringing in my ears. I continued shaking my head for quite a while, but mom realized that I haven't been doing it for some time now. Yes, I am losing my hearing, another reason for mom to love me even more.

Hey Monty, Not hearing isn't so bad. No one tells you "no" anymore. If someone is scolding you, you can just pretend they are saying something nice (just don't look at their face). You do get surprised alot and you won't be thought of as a good watchdog, but overall it's not too bad. Teddy
