    yes
    yet again all the puppies have perfect hearing,


    while we were talking of deafness in different breeds,
    the lady was saying that a new breeder took up his dallies for their ear test 7 of them and all but 1 was deaf.
    she was saying in all the breeds the deafness is going up they had a good year in 04 but since then more and more are deaf

    she tested bull dogs due the the amount of white on them they can be deaf as well
    and she was finding more in boarder collies as well mostly the tri's and blue's
    she said any dog with large amount of white on them can be deaf

    she thinks it might have to do with people breeding there dogs and because they havent had any deafness for a while in there line they are NOT as viligant in the breeding as they should be

    but she's looking into it she does a non stop study on deafness in dogs.
