A woman named Lindsay Kelly adopted a beautiful pup named Reggie. Lindsay believes that Reggie must have been born deaf because she has never made any noise ever since she adopted her.
Lindsay and her family think that Reggie must have lived her whole life in a world with nothing but silence, so the chances of Reggie ever hearing what a doggy bark sounds like is highly unlikely. However, Reggie’s condition never hindered her from creating her very own unique “bark.”
Reggie’s four other senses are heightened because of her deafness. Lindsay believes that Reggie probably does not know what a bark sounds like, but she was aware of the physical movement associated with barking because of her observant behavior.
Lindsay recalled that Reggie usually does not make any noise at home, but she was surprised when she witnessed Reggie trying to bark. She shared that it took her a while before she realized what her dog was doing.
Lindsay admitted that she thought Reggie was trying to cough or sneeze. However, she eventually realized that Reggie was trying to communicate because she kept looking at her each time she tried to bark silently.
Lindsay wanted to share how proud she was of Reggie’s accomplishment, so she decided to take a video of her dog and post it on social media. Lindsay’s post garnered almost 700,000 heart reactions, received over 5,000 comments, and was shared over 30,000 times on the internet.
Lindsay recalled that Reggie has been using her newfound voice ever since she figured out how to communicate. Reggie’s bark may be adorably unconventional, but her new form of communication surprisingly works.
The two have become much closer ever since Reggie has found out that she could communicate because she is now more aware of what her dog is trying to tell her. Reggie became much happier because she and her mom finally understand each other better than before.
