Millie the presidential spaniel made a brief and secret visit to a veterinarian to be spayed, a television station reported Friday.

Millie, troubled by false pregnancies, was sent from the White House to the clinic of a Columbia veterinarian for the surgery about two weeks ago, WIS-TV said.The White House did not want to put Millie's difficulties in the spotlight, so her Army veterinarian drove about 475 miles to Dr. Randy Basinger's clinic, the station said.
