Surprise delivery and Ellie update

Yesterday I got a notice that there was a package for me at the front office of our apartment building. The strange thing was, I was not expecting anything. Wonder what it could be!

When I got to the office after work, she went back and grabbed a box and returned saying "Ellie?" I accepted the box and wondered if Ellie had a shopping spree with my credit card.
What could it be?
Turns out, it was some gifts from my sister!

The giant ball is called a Jolly Ball and it's scented. The soccer ball has a jingle bell inside. Great toys for a dog who can't see! And Ellie loves them both!

Ellie Update: As for Ellie's condition, it was diagnosed that she does in fact have SARDS. There is nothing that can be done, and all we can do now is hope that she keeps what little vision she has. She may go completely blind, but only time will tell.


  1. Aww that was so nice and thoughtful

  2. What a wonderful thing for your sister to do :)

    Sorry to hear about Ellie losing her sight :(
    You know though, dogs are very resilient and adaptable. I bet in time she learns how to manage her lack of sight and do all the things she finds fun :) Balls with jingles and scents are terrific ideas!

    Waggin at ya,

  3. Aww, what a great thing for your sister to have done for Ellie! We bet Ellie loved getting some new toys she can have fun with.
