Silly Milli plays ball …

It’s been a bit since I’ve blogged about Silly Milli. A few things  have happened. In about ten days, Milli is having surgery on her eye. It became sore about two weeks ago; after waiting a couple of days to see if it would clear up, we decided to take her to the vet. The examination showed that somehow Milli has a hole in what I believe is the outer part of her eye. While the veterinarian was concerned, immediate surgery was not needed. It is painful for Milli, so we are giving her a pain pill and using ointment on her eye. You would think she would be lying around, maybe acting sick … Nope, not Milli. Milli has been playing ball.


When the weather is good, we start our day with coffee on our deck and playing ball with Milli. She loves her tennis balls. We throw them across the deck and she quickly retrieves them – for a half hour or more. Most of the time she will bring the ball back and then stop short – so that we have to reach to get the ball. Sometimes she will put the ball on the deck and just look at us. I guess that’s the point where she’s had enough exercise.

Other times, I will sit on the deck – with Milli – but Milli plays ball on her own. I simply watch and chuckle – a lot.




As you can see, Milli enjoys playing ball and we enjoy watching her – even when she is being  very serious …

Thanks for reading! I hope you will come again (and so does Milli!). We\’ll be sure to post some photos after the surgery … when she is wearing a cone around her neck. I wonder if she will be able to play ball?
