I Can’t Hear You

When Hu-Dad wants to cut short Landon’s playtime in the yard, the response is, “I can’t hear you.”

I can't hear you, Hu-Dad.
I can’t hear you, Hu-Dad.

We’re enjoying our yard now that the fence has been completed. We no longer have to have leashes on to simply go outside. Unfortunately for Hu-Dad, that also means we can ignore him when he suggests it’s time to go back inside. Note how Landon perfectly demonstrates Siberian Selective Deafness. He’s communicating clearly, “I can’t hear you.”

    Hu-Dad-don’t you just LOVE when they have selective deafness? I have to say though that it’s NOT just the Sibes who are affected by that-lol We have a hound mix as well as the husky mix Bradley.Her name is Sadie and when I call her in-she just gives me a LOOK and runs off to the other end of the yard(which is fenced)!!
