Both of my cocker spaniels were deaf by the time they were 6 yrs old. They had major ear problems that led to a loss of hearing. It really wasn't much diferent. I didn't have to worry about them being scared of loud noises and they really didn't bark all that much either. The only thing I had to worry about was if they were sleeping. They would always get startled if you went to pet them when they were sleeping because they wouldn't hear you coming. If you just put your hand in front of their face though, they would smell you and wake up. I think that dogs have such an amazing sense of smell that it sort of makes up for a lack in other senses.
