          Woof! Woof!      
Pippa has become a familiar sight around van Asch Deaf Education Centre and Wharenui School. Pippa is Ann Croy's Hearing Dog for the Deaf, in training. The dog accompanies Ann  everywhere she goes. As a service dog Pippa is allowed to go to all of the places that a guide dog can go to. Pippa's role is to alert Ann to important sounds she can't hear, such as the door bell, phone, smoke alarm and alarm clock, by gently pawing her and then showing her where the sound comes from.
