What a child knows, he knows

In her element, mud splattered and running
like the wind,
Bowen Island, BC 2013
Child, about 6: Can I pet your dogs?
Jenny: Sure, if you'd like to.
C: Will they bite?
J: No, but they might kiss you, so be ready.  This is Eli; he's 11.  This is Maude; she'll be 13 soon.  Maude is deaf.  She can see and smell but she can't hear.
C: Can she hear herself think?
J: Wow!  What a great question.  I don't know; what do you think?
C: I think she can hear what's going on inside her body.
J: That's brilliant.
