I think our Sandy has gone deaf.
I have noticed for the last while that if I call her she doesn’t respond. When someone walks up the lane, she stays dozing instead of going into a frenzy of barking at the gate. She no longer runs at the sound of gunfire.
I suppose it’s only to be expected as she is getting on a bit.
I find it strange though that she can still hear a Bonio box being rattled at 500 yards.
