When you throw a ball over Daisy’s head, she often misses it and doesn’t think you’ve thrown one at all. In response, I sometimes re-throw an imaginary ball – but Daisy finds that confusing. Other times, I try to be kind and lead her over to where the ball has landed. Daisy’s take on this is that, given she is not a subject in a symbolic system, it is understandable that she misses the point. Given her poor eyesight, it is understandable that she misses the ball. Nevertheless, she feels that she is comfortable, on the whole, with the absence of the ball and it is really only me that wants it back.
