Turns out Edna knows how to play with a ball. It took almost a week for her to show interest, but it happened and I have proof! She appears to be feeling better physically (upper respiratory infection treated with antibiotics & ears treated with medicated drops) and emotionally (consistent love and attention).
Not only is Edna playful at times, she has some spunk! Thankfully we have a locking trashcan in our kitchen, because she’s pawed at it and has nudged it hard enough to knock it over twice. If you have a dog, no matter what size or age, you should have a locking trashcan to prevent your dog from consuming anything hazardous to their health (it could save their life and your wallet).
