For sure, the eye is nonvisual but it would be nice if we could leave it for aesthetic reasons. She doesn't seem to be in pain. If it needs to come out, we'll do that though. Also, she has dozens of tiny mats and will be shaved down soon (hopefully tomorrow) to regrow a beautiful coat. Despite all of this, Bethany is a happy little girl. ...

lnteresting Maltese Trivia Low-Cost Missouri Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Maltese are unusually prone to playing in puddles. Maltese are believed to have been brought home from the Crusades by returning English knights. Maltese were popular with women in the middle ages, and would often be carried in their sleeves, earning them the nickname the Roman Ladies Dog. Marie Antoinette was one of many royals and famous people to have owned Maltese.
