I say is she wants you to toss the ball, toss away!!! It will do her a world of good mentally, and probably physically, too, to get *things* moving! Just, like you did, short little tosses.
Great update today. Misty eyed with happiness for you. I remember with HRH when he had a good day, it just made my whole world bright.

But when I bring her to the park, she wags her tail and she was trying to get me to toss the ball for her yesterday (I confess I did a couple of times - really short ones). She was thrilled. So was I.

This made me misty-eyed right back. Thank you. We went again today, and she had even more energy. Part of me was really worried. Everytime I tossed and she skidded into the catch, I cringed inside. But part of me was also so happy to see her happy and having fun. I decided that was more important. I had been worried she was getting depressed. She was used to playing ball every single day - most days, twice a day. I figured even if this made her really tired, she would have had great fun. We did about twice as long as yesterday (we're still talking very short tosses, for just a few minutes). She also rolled. It takes a bit more effort now to get over, but she did it. I was so happy for her. She has been sleeping hard since we got home (about 5 hours ago) but hopefully she'll get up soon - and be hungry!

I was so afraid she would never get to play ball again. Today was the best day we've had in several weeks.
