Continuing with the theme about the other Dogs I live with this post is about Dare.
Dare is a Blue Merle Border Collie boy who was born on the 8th of February 2007 and is the second oldest of our little pack.
Unfortunately Dare had a very bad ear infection as a puppy and had to have lots of tests including a CT scan and a BAER hearing test at the Royal Veterinary College in Hatfield. He then had a very long course of antibiotics and steroids but was unfortunately left completely deaf in one ear.
But you cannot really notice most of the time now that Dare is not able to tell what direction sounds are coming from as he copes really well with his mono deafness.
Dare is a bit of a couch potato liking nothing better than to laze about the house. Can't imagine where he learnt that from...
As you can see Dare has very blue eyes and also a very impressive Border Collie stare.
Dare's party piece is his ability to open all the doors in the house with either his paws or mouth. This includes the back door so he can always let himself (and the rest of us ) out into the garden whenever he wants.
