Being the proud and loving owner of a lethal white rescue myself (picture left), this video is even more special to me. If you are not familiar with the term “lethal white,” they are dogs born from a merle-to-merle breeding which are typically deaf and/or blind. Commonly found in Australian Shepherds. For more specific details, pictures, and wonderful stories, please visit Amazing Aussies website.
I would like to emphasize… my Lethal White is the BEST thing that has ever happened to me. It was actually very easy teaching him hand signals and touch commands. Much easier than I ever imagined. In fact, easier than training my Huskies I used to have… (I am sure a Husky owner knows exactly what I’m talking about here…)
So, please watch, enjoy, and consider adopting a lethal white. You will not regret it.
Awesome music video. Great video work, especially love watching the dogs run.
According to the description in the video:
I built the ball machine because I thought my dog Jerry, might like it and that it would be something fun for me to build. So after two years of on and off work, with many safety features such as IR proximity sensors to protect Jerry and my son from the machine, I finally complete.
Far from being a replacement for me, I was always right there with him enjoying his fun. And with all the troubles that I went through to build the ball machine, I still end up throwing more balls than that the machine could count! According to the computer, he played with the machine by himself only 3 times in his life.
I recently put this video on YouTube to keep alive my earlier memories of him and (hopefully) provide some “humorous distractions” for anyone that might drop by.
Please enjoy the video.
Personal note: I know some people sniffle at this creation, “You should spend more time with your dog throwing the ball yourself…” etc. Well, let’s face it and be real. Life keeps us busy, joints and muscles get old and tired, and so on. I would love to spend all my time playing with my dogs, but just cannot. I think this is great! If you notice, this dachshund has quite a bit of gray… excellent way to help keep an older dog active.
Patience and consistency… that’s the key.
