Hi :p
Just wanted to introduce myself - my name is Clare and I live in Yorkshire.
I have two cavs - Oliver (a ruby) and Harry (a tri) and I'd love to rehome another one, esp a cav who is deaf as I'm really interested in deaf communication (humans and dogs) - so if anyone knows of any that would be great!

Lovely to find a site like this where we can share our cav stories instead of boring non dog lovers!!

icon_welcome from Surrey. I don't know anything about deaf Cavaliers, but am interested in your interest, so to speak. Do you have friends/family who have hearing problems?

Hi all :-p

My interest in deafness - I did a degree in special needs and education (I'm now a primary school teacher) and during that, one of the most profound things I ever heard was from a deaf tutor who said that the only reason that people are disabled is because society makes it that way. It just made me really sad to think that we can communicate in all these other languages but yet cann't communicate with people in our society. ( I once was in a shop and a deaf person wanted some help and the cashier was so rude to him) so since all that I'e been studying sign language and then I guess thats where wanting to help a deaf dog came from!
Long explanation but there we go!http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3031/2869782243_9861fca5d6.jpg?v=0

Oliver and Harry are gorgeous. I just passed British Sign Language Level 1 and I'm back at college on Thursday for my next course :D
