Hi, I have just joined, having learnt lots from the website already! Poppy is 17months old, almost white and a bundle of confident, lovable naughtiness! She is totally deaf - diagnosed at 6 months - which means she gets away with a lot, though she is clever at learning sign language. Anyone else got a deaf lab? Are they very pale? (Deafness is commoner in white/pale dogs generally). She also seems to be growing out of the attacks of paroxysmal dyskinesia, she has had since 4 months old , which is wonderful.
