It’s harder these days to get really awesome smiling shots of the puglet outside. Since becoming fully blind, playing outdoors has kind of come off the table as an option. We’ve tried – don’t get me wrong – but she quickly loses interest because she has no idea of where her bearings are and therefore can’t find the ball without risking becoming lost herself. We can play a bit of tug-of-war; it’s odd, you know, because for years I refused to play this with her because I didn’t want to encourage aggression, but now outdoors it’s one of the few play activities we can do. :)
However, Merry’s still a happy pug even without the outdoor play. This was taken at a recent family picnic; she had a great time begging for scraps from the table (she loves cherry tomatoes!), wandering around the grass and going for a walk.
