    More or less. She hears very loud, sudden sounds, like when I drop a metal dish. She doesn't respond to a normal tone of voice at all, unless she's looking at me. She makes alot of eye contact. As long as she looking at me, she seems to be able to figure out what I want from her. She's picked up a few hand signals too.

    Lounging is just my style too, sweet girl.

    Glad you're doing good, darling.

    Glacier, it's so awesome that you've given Pirate such an amazing home to be comfortable in; she's so lucky to have found you. I'm glad to hear that she is doing so much better than when she first went to the white coats.
    Thank you Amy!

    It's great to hear how well she's doing in a loving home. Poor girl, thought she was going back to the yucky place where she used to "live." She's beautiful, Tamara. Thanks for sharing her progress with us!

    I love warm fuzzy stories with happy endings.

    Pirate - special angels brought you to your new home - and aren't you the lucky girl in every way?

    Tamara - it must be so heartwarming to have all of this good news. Congratulations.

    I think that should actually be, Yay Tamara! You have been such an angel for this pretty girl, and I think her response to the truck lets you know how much she appreciates her new home. It's so nice to know that this sweet girl is learning what it is like to live in a loving home.

    Like Gini, I also like warm fuzzy stories, with happy endings. I dare say, Pirate has it better now than at any time in her life.

    Any idea if her previous owners know she is thriving now?

    I don't talk to them to anymore so I haven't told them. I wouldn't be suprised if they heard me calling her....why do I bother calling a deaf dog? Their son drove by me on Monday while I had Pirate in the truck, but she was laying down.
